Dr. Andrew Bisset, M.D. is a Licensed Hawai‘i Physician certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.  Both Dr. Bisset and Dr. Wasan provide clinical supervision for all interns and clinical staff through a multi-disciplinary treatment team consisting of a Hawai‘i Licensed Physician, a Hawai‘i Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Psychiatrist, and Hawai‘i Certified Substance Abuse Counselors (CSAC’s).

When the crystal methamphetamine epidemic escalated on the Big Island of Hawaii in the late 1990’s, Dr. Jamal F. Wasan responded by founding Waikoloa Community-Based Substance Abuse Rehabilitation and Recovery Program, now known as Lokahi Treatment Centers (“LTC”). He quickly learned that drug abuse was not an isolated problem and expanded LTC’s services to create an integrated model to address related mental health and anger issues, as well.

Dr. Jamal F. Wasan holds a Masters in Public Administration,  a Masters in Clinical Psychology and Doctorate in Health Psychology.  He is a State of Hawai‘i Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), State of Hawai‘i Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), and Department of Transportation (DOT) Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). Dr. Wasan, who served in Vietnam in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, is committed to public service.

"Lokahi’s ultimate goal is to help those in emotional pain find relief from their suffering and realize their ability to accomplish miracles."  Dr. Wasan
