Treatment at Lakeview Health is not just focused on the addiction but is designed to go deeper. We use a whole person approach to treatment. By identifying and addressing underlying issues, like anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, we go beyond the surface to comprehensively treat the root of addiction. Our medical and psychiatric experts help individuals learn ways to work through these issues during their stay to manage the source of the problem. Another key aspect of the Lakeview Health philosophy is our gender-responsive approach. Addiction is a very different experience for men and women—from its roots to behaviors and contributing factors. That’s why our treatment is designed to meet men and women’s unique needs.

- Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
- Holistic Therapy
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
