  • Chemical Dependency, Substance Abuse & Dual Diagnosis (Co-Occuring Disorders)

    At Lakeside, we know that chemical dependency is not a character deficiency or moral weakness. It is progressive, potentially fatal disease that has long-term emotional and physical impact on the individual and the whole family. When it is accompanied by other mental health problems, it is important to treat both. At least 30% of the people who recognize their alcohol and/or drug abuse also have emotional disorders. Addictive behaviors are more likely to continue unless these disorders are recognized and treated.
  • Mental Health Treatment

    Lakeside has long been a leader in the treatment of illnesses that effect mental health. Our programs allow each person to grow and learn from those in similar situations. Each patient gains the education, skills training and symptom management to cope effectively with their illness and life stressors. Lakeside’s Mental Health Program is an opportunity to bring joy back into their lives.
