After a decade in field of behavioral health Lucky O’Donnell comes to The Guest House with a variety of experience.
Lucky’s venture into this field started as a private case manager for entertainers, technology executives and diplomatic families with substance abuse issues.

In 2015 he joined Sunspire Health.  In his role as Director of Specialty Services, Lucky subsequently helped Sunspire Health to surpass expected revenue and admissions goals over 4 consecutive quarters.  In 2016 The Meadows of Wickenburg was acquired by Sunspire Health’s Private Equity ownership group Kohlberg & Company. Lucky was actively involved in the coordination with intake and marketing departments during the merger of Sunspire Health into what became known as Alitacare and now known as Meadows Behavioral Healthcare.
In 2017 Lucky was invited to join The Meadows Business Development Team with a focus on growing specific market segments such as intervention professionals, private case management companies and the entertainment industry. Lucky was named The Meadows’ National Accounts Manager in 2018. During this period Lucky grew his territory & market segments by over 300%. In addition he helped make The Meadows a leading facility for aviation professionals.

Lucky has been involved with public policy related to addiction since 2010; serving as a consultant to politicians on a state and national level. Lucky has been a contributor to NBC, Fox News, The New York Times and the Drudge Report on the topic of addiction.

Lucky has been following Judy Crane since the early days of his career and has long admired her approach to trauma and addiction treatment. After hearing Judy Crane present at a conference in Clearwater Beach, FL in February 2017 Lucky began investigating a link between trauma, addiction and nutrition which prompted a major shift in his perspective on the way the treatment industry approaches healing.

After several visits to The Guest House during a three year period and studying their treatment philosophy Lucky decided to join the team in late 2019 as he believes “The Guest House Ocala is practicing the most innovative approach to the remediation of trauma and chemical dependency of anyone in the Behavioral Healthcare field.”

Lucky lives in Palm Beach, FL with his two Shih Tzu puppies, enjoys art, studying the compatibility of eastern philosophy & western psychology.
