Treatment

Lakeside provides a wide range of treatment programs specific to the mental and behavioral health needs, including addictive diseases, of the patients we serve. We have programs for children, adolescents, young adults, adults and seniors. Lakeside’s comprehensive programs treat disorders such as depression and anxiety, mental illnesses and addictive disease disorders such as alcoholism, drug addiction and substance abuse. We think of most physical illnesses in specific terms. However, mental health is seldom specific. Mental illness covers a multiplicity of symptoms, and a never‐ending list of causes and effects of human behavior. The ability to make the proper assessment initially, plus a wide variety of specialized treatments, is essential for effective treatment of mental illness and substance abuse.

Levels of Care

Lakeside’s programs are designed to meet the specific clinical needs of each patient. Every prospective patient, regardless of age, receives a thorough clinical assessment to determine the appropriate level of care. Confidential assessments are made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a team of trained professionals.
