In 1967, Lakeside Behavioral Health System opened its doors with one mission in mind: to provide specialized behavioral health care and addiction treatment in a welcoming environment for people in search of healing. Our 37-acre campus, located on the outskirts of Memphis, Tennessee, features a state-of-the-science, 305-bed facility designed to make recovery an accessible, effective reality in the lives of our patients.
Our ultimate goal is your restored health. Within our system of care are professional, proven treatment programs that allow each person to grow and learn — through their own self-discovery and from those in similar situations. In every one of our programs, patients gain the education, skills training and symptom management tools to not just cope effectively with their illness but to live a happy, healthy, fulfilling life.
Every day, millions of people suffer from diagnosable mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, panic or trauma. Left untreated, these illnesses create a degree of incapacity that interferes with relationships, employment, education and everyday life. Fortunately, treatment is available. Lakeside has long been a leader in the field of behavioral health. Our programs allow each individual to gain the education and skills needed to manage their symptoms, problem solve, recognize life stressors and cope effectively with their illness.
Reaching out to ask for help can be scary, but our admissions team is here to guide you through every step of the process. The need for treatment doesn’t arise at the most convenient time that’s why patients may be referred, assessed and admitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Following a confidential assessment, our experts identify the most appropriate type of treatment and a referral is made to the program that is determined to be the best fit.
