Family participation in our adolescent program is a big part of the healing process here at Lakeland and parents of children patients are expected to fully engage in the whole treatment process from the initial intake assessment to the last discharge planning meeting.
Family members will receive education about their child's disorder, any medication needs, and specific coping strategies that have been learned. In addition to therapy, family members are allowed to visit for up to an hour each day.
In addition to our adolescent program, family involvement is a vital part of the older adults program as well. Patients and their families will receive education on specific disorders, medications, and effective coping strategies. Family and friends of patients are allowed to visit daily up to one hour between the hours of 9am and 6pm.
