JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (July 10, 2018) – Lakeview Health, a nationally recognized addiction treatment facility, continues to expand its executive leadership team with the addition of Dr. Rebecca C. Villar as the Director of Neuropsychology.
“Dr. Villar’s unique specialty in neurorehabilitation adds great value to Lakeview Health’s services and mission to provide the best comprehensive care to our patients,” said Robert J. Bunker, Lakeview Health’s president and chief executive officer. “Her passion and talent is a great complement to our superior medical staff.”
In her new role at Lakeview Health, Dr. Villar will augment the psychological and neuropsychological testing already performed at the facilities, and help improve the identification and treatment of dual diagnoses. She will provide thorough neuropsychological testing to objectively examine the potential cognitive and psychological impairments often seen in people who are addicted to alcohol and various drugs. The additional information provided through neuropsychological testing allows Lakeview Health to develop better-individualized treatment plans for our patients. Individualized treatment provides our patients with the most thorough and effective management tools available for the cognitive and behavioral problems often seen in people with addictive disorders.
“I feel very honored to join such a talented and caring medical team, one that shares the same philosophy of comprehensive and individualized patient care,” said Dr. Villar. “Together we will work to discover and address the causes and consequences of addiction for each person, which will create the best circumstance for a successful recovery.”
