Lakeview Health

1 Review

Lakeview Health is a gender responsive, dual diagnosis treatment center. It offers medically monitored detox and inpatient rehab for individuals dealing with alcohol and/or substance addiction. Lakeview Health is located in Jacksonville, Florida and is a licensed and Joint Commission accredited facility.

Lakeview Health Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Lakeview Health offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

They offer something unique: a fully accredited, licensed, professionally staffed, medically monitored detox facility right at their Jacksonville campus. They provide custom designed, physician-approved detox procedures supervised around the clock by medical professionals dedicated to your recovery. Their doctors and nurses provide immediate treatment in case problems arise, administer therapies and medications to alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms, and collaborate with therapists to form the first stages of your long-term, personalized recovery plan.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Instensive Outpatient programs are for those who are stepping down from the inpatient level of care at Lakeview. Individuals will continue to participate in programming on-campus and will live at the provided apartments off-campus. IOP is a very structured treatment program that allows individuals to continue with programming and begin to develop some independence. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Lakeview Health is the level of care between our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and discharge. The intensive outpatient program at Lakeview Health is all about developing personal accountability, setting long-term recovery goals, and building an Aftercare plan to help you transition from treatment to everyday life.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Inpatient Rehab Program at Lakeview Health is the level of care between their Detox and Residential Treatment programs. At the inpatient level of care, you live on campus in semi-private rooms – men in The Star and women in The Rose – and receive at least six hours of structured therapy per day. Additional recovery groups, exercise, wellness activities, and social support meetings round out your schedule. The Residential Treatment Program at Lakeview Health is the level of care between our Inpatient Rehab, Partial Hospitalization (PHP), and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programs.

Intervention Services

Intervention Services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict’s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

They start with the idea that no two people are alike. They expand this fundamental concept to encompass all phases of your recovery journey. First, they listen. Their multidisciplinary staff is comprised of experienced professionals who take time to learn who you are, what’s important to you, and what kinds of treatment resonate with you. Then they design a recovery program to heal your mind, body, and spirit. Your program grows and changes over time as you grow and change. They initiate a dialogue with you, you initiate a dialogue with your recovery, and together they discover the best path forward – the path that works for you - ultimately helping to "Find Your True North."

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. A three-day family workshop is part of their gender responsive treatment program at Lakeview Health. Like all of their treatments, it’s based entirely on the most current, evidence-based best practices. They’re committed to helping the families of their patients mend their relationships, and their staff is handpicked to ensure the best quality of care.

Aftercare Support

One of the unique qualities of Lakeview Health is that they offer ways to ensure that patient’s recovery continue to be successful after leaving their campus. Staying sober can be a challenge and having the support of professionals and fellowship with others in addiction recovery can go a long way. Their Alumni Services include resources to help patients manage their recovery and stay connected with their peers from Lakeview Health. They also offer resources for families to help them support loved ones receiving treatment at their facility.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic or integrative therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. They offer comprehensive, data-driven alcohol and substance use recovery programs tailored to heal your mind, body, and spirit. Your total health and lifelong recovery is their goal. Their multidisciplinary treatment model combines the highest quality physiological, psychological, emotional, and psychosocial care available.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

At Lakeview Health, they understand past trauma and know how to help you deal with it. They follow guidelines established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for best practices in trauma-informed care. Their team creates an atmosphere where you can explore, understand, and process your past trauma. They help you understand how the sum of your life experiences add up to where you are now, and teach you the coping skills you need to move forward and break the painful cycles of substance abuse and mental health disorders. The gender-responsive facilities allow women and men completely separate facilities to begin to heal.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Couples Treatment

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction. One of the types of experiential therapy featured at Lakeview Health is the unique practice of equine therapy. employs the EAGALA Model Equine Assisted Psychotherapy in working with patients struggling to let their guard down, helping them uncover their strengths, learning how to take responsibility for their choices and actions, realize their obstacles, and practice new skills. This entire experience is enhanced by the inclusion of horses, which they interact with and learn from.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a therapeutic modality originally developed to help process trauma. In an EMDR session, a patient is prompted to undergo eye movements that mimic those of REM sleep. This is accomplished by watching a therapist’s finger move back and forth across, or following a bar of light. The goal is repetitive sets of eye movements that help the brain reprocess memory, which can significantly reduce the intensity of remembered traumatic incidents. Associated memories can heal simultaneously, leaving patients significantly calmer, more stable, and more emotionally relaxed.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing. Building the confidence to live life in sobriety takes time. Patients in IOP at Lakeview Health are able to participate in experiential therapy, which includes surf therapy and equine therapy. These groups are optional.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.
