Levels of Care
Finding the Right Treatment Program for Your Needs
Each program at Lakeside Behavioral Health System strives to meet specific clinical needs of children, teens, and adults in need of mental health care. We work carefully and diligently to determine the appropriate level of care for each persons’ unique situation.
We provide confidential assessments 24 hours a day, seven days a week, administered by a team of trained behavioral health professionals. While most assessments are conducted on campus, Lakeside Behavioral Health System does provide mobile assessment services for area hospitals, emergency rooms and senior living facilities.
Following the assessment and consultation with Lakeside’s physicians, the patient may be recommended to one of our levels of care: inpatient, partial hospitalization (day treatment with or without boarding), outpatient or residential. In some cases, patients are referred to one of the many private practice providers and outreach clinics that work closely with Lakeside.
Programs vary in duration, based on each patient’s specific needs, and patients may transition between or “step down” from one level of care to another as treatment progresses.
