Ottawa clinic to offer methadone

An Ottawa clinic will offer methadone to treat heroin addiction.
Great Heights Family Medicine, 315 E. McKinley Road, will offer methadone as a treatment option for those addicted to heroin and prescription opioids beginning Thursday, June 16. The clinic also offers the drugs suboxone and vivitrol to fight narcotics addiction.
Methadone mimicks the effects of heroin and works to wean a user from heroin.
Dr. Adeyemi Fatoki, the director of Great Heights, said there are no other facilities in the area licensed to offer methadone. The nearest clinics are in Bloomington, Peoria, Aurora and Chicago. Patients from La Salle County have to travel to such cities as often as six days per week to receive the medication.
Fatoki noted there are different treatments, with methadone being one option. His practice also will provide counseling. Further, Fatoki noted he is going to be trained to insert an implantable form of suboxone.
Fatoki said there is need for a local methadone clinic, because heroin overdoses in La Salle County jumped from four in 2014 to 14 in 2015, with five in 2013. Total overdoses — from all drugs, including heroin — in 2015 were 28, with 18 the year before and 26 in 2013.
Great Heights Family Medicine can be reached at 815-434-0228 or great-heights.com. Great Heights also has an office in Calumet City.

I am the face of heroin’: Drug addiction highlighted at community seminar

In 2015, La Salle County had 28 deaths from drug overdoses, according to an area physician who spoke about the ongoing national epidemic at a public meeting Wednesday evening at Ottawa High School.

Dr. Adeyemi Fatoki, of the Great Heights Family Medicine Clinic in Ottawa, called drug abuse an illness with no real cure.

The doctor joined recovering addicts and police officers in the educational seminar about local drug addiction problems in the country, the state and the community.

My name is Ashley. I have been a patient of Dr. Fatoki for the past few months. As a new resident to Illinois I researched online to find a educated doctor. Especially one whom tended to patients with an addiction problem. After discovering his office online I called and made an appointment. I have to be honest, I was nervous, due to the fact that previously being seen by other doctors about my addiction problem I was treated unfriendly, uncaring,and talked down to basically. But upon entering into his office in Ottawa and being greeted by Sonja, whom was very friendly and very helpful. My nerves eased. Still a little anxious about the actual doctor visit. Dr. Fatoki is an amazing man and doctor. He was the kindest person and I felt completely comfortable being open and honest with him about my past drug usage. Never once feeling judged or belittled. He listened and provided me with answers that I needed pertaining to having a normal life without using drugs recreationally. Every appointment he was willing to help me with Any issues I may have had. Dr. Fatoki is the only doctor that I have seen that I felt 100% comfortable with talking to about drug addiction and when I left his office I didn’t feel like I was judged…but felt like someone actually cares about people who have gotten tangled up in the drug lifestyle. Words will never be able to express the gratitude I have for the kindness shown from his Ottawa office. I truly believe God put Dr. Fatoki in his profession to show love and kindness to the ones that need it the most. Thank you very much for just being there to listen and help guide me and my family back on the right path…so we can be Happy Joyous and Free.
