More than 80 donors and supporters toured the newly renovated Lighthouse on Dewey: a space dedicated to helping to support individuals battling addiction and substance abuse. The Campaign Cabinet successfully raised $2.1 million to transform what was once the hospital president’s home into a calming, beautiful center for healing.
“Thanks to the vision of our donors and supporters, we will always be here for our patients – to welcome them back and stand side-by-side as they courageously work for a life that is free from dependency,” said Pete Carlson, President of Aurora Behavioral Health Services.
Beginning in January, the building will provide a permanent space for about 400 people weekly who seek support group services that are currently being held within the hospital and Dewey Center.
Aurora Behavioral Health Services treats more than 25,000 patients each year with 30 outpatient locations across Eastern Wisconsin.
“This campus is at the core of our integrative behavioral health strategies, which allows us to make sure every patient we serve receives the support and care they need. The Lighthouse on Dewey is an extension of that,” said Carlson.
