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.

Most assessments are conducted on campus, but Lakeside does provide mobile assessment services for area hospitals, emergency rooms and senior living facilities.

Following the assessment and consultation with a Lakeside’s physicians, the patient may be recommended to one of our levels of care: inpatient, partial hospitalization (day treatment), outpatient, or residential. In some cases, patients are referred to one of the many private practice providers and outreach clinics who work closely with Lakeside.

The programs vary in duration, based on the patients’ needs. Patients may transition between one level of care to another as treatment progresses.

Inpatient Treatment

Lakeside Behavioral Health System offers inpatient hospitalization to patients who are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, are in danger of harming themselves or others or are in need of inpatient detoxification from drugs and/or alcohol.

Partial Hospitalization

Lakeside Behavioral Health System offers partial hospitalization services to adults, children and adolescents who are experiencing psychiatric and substance abuse problems. Partial hospitalization, also referred to as day treatment, is beneficial for patients who are in need of treatment and intervention that is more intensive than traditional outpatient but less restrictive than inpatient hospitalization. The program is offered seven days a week and patients are able to attend during the day and return home in the evening.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Intensive outpatient (IOP) is the least restrictive level of care offered at Lakeside and is specially designed for patients who are in need of treatment and intervention that is more intensive than traditional outpatient but less restrictive than partial hospitalization. A significant benefit to IOP is the ability for patients to receive treatment while continuing to perform daily family and work obligations. IOP is tailored to address a full range of psychiatric and addictive disease issues for adults and adolescents and options are available in the evening and during the day.
