In 2013, South Norcross opened a Georgia branch of Lakeview Behavioral Health providing a variety of substance abuse treatment options. Both adult and adolescent clients have access to inpatient, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) as well as detox. Treatment at Lakeview follows the 12-step model and incorporates evidence based methods including CBT. Those with co-occurring disorders can also access dual diagnosis support.
As a member of the Acadia Healthcare network, Lakeview Behavioral Health is just one of many behavioral health facilities providing chemical dependency and therapeutic support. With its headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee, Acadia serves communities across the country and in the UK with inpatient, residential, outpatient and school-based treatment programs.
Accommodations and Food
The Lakeview facility accommodates 70 individuals with adolescent clients (between the ages of 9 and 17) housed separately from adults. Grounds are arranged campus style with clinical buildings and dorms all on-site. Clients share their bedrooms, at least two to a room. Lakeview common areas include a large dining room (that also serves as a common room) where meals are served family style, a basketball court, a rec room and gardens.
Treatment and Staff
Lakeview’s treatment approach utilizes an individualized combination of dual-diagnosis, behavioral, experiential, and medication-based therapies for each of its clients. Inpatient clients stay a minimum of a week, and stays can be extended based on each client’s need. Clients follow their own schedule of individual and group therapy, strengths-based counseling and family sessions, as well as regular on-site AA/NA meetings. Clients also get the benefit of aftercare planning, music, art, and expressive therapy, as well as nutrition and wellness counseling.
The Lakeview PHP uses the same treatment approach with more limited hours. Minimum length of treatment is seven days, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 3 pm. Clients are expected to attend between four and six group sessions per day. Lakeview employs a step down approach based on each client’s progress and corresponding need. The IOP runs Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 12 pm, and clients are required to attend two to three groups daily. IOP clients must also attend for a minimum of seven days.
Lakeview treatment staff consists of medical doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, therapists and licensed clinicians.
The Georgia branch of Lakeview Behavioral Health offers an array of services including a short-term inpatient track, PHP and IOP with a step-down approach that supports adults and adolescents through each stage of recovery. By combining evidence based methods of treatment with music, art and expressive therapies, clients have access to a holistic range of treatment options that aim to treat body, mind and spirit.
