Lakeview Center Names New Program Manager

Pensacola, Fla. (June 26, 2017) – Licensed Clinical Social Worker Dustin Perry has been appointed as the Director of a new program at Lakeview Center named STOP (State Targeted Opioid Program). The program will help people who are struggling with opioid addiction.

“The program is a response to the statewide opioid crisis that Governor Rick Scott declared this spring,” said Karen McAllister, Director, Lakeview Center Behavioral Health Substance Abuse Services. ”This grant-funded program targets low income opioid users, through medication-assisted treatment using Suboxone, methadone, Vivitrol and counseling services to promote recovery. Dustin definitely has the expertise to work with our community to improve lives.”

Perry is responsible for screening, coordination, and continued development of STOP which is currently a two-year program. The role requires coordination among the state, local medical and behavioral health providers, and law enforcement to provide access to those who are challenged by addiction. The program also will expand telemedicine to surrounding counties for efficient delivery of substance use services in rural communities.

Most recently and for the past five years, Perry served as the admissions coordinator for the Lakeview program Road to Recovery, a residential treatment program. He holds a Master of Social Work from the University of West Florida and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of Central Florida. Perry has 11 years experience working with adolescents and adults to help them throughout their life journeys.




An affiliate of Baptist Health Care, Lakeview Center Inc. is a network of behavioral health, vocational and child protective services. These services address a broad spectrum of human needs, reflecting a longstanding commitment to helping people overcome life's challenges.
