At Lakeland Behavioral Health System our mission is to be an outstanding provider of quality, safe, and cost effective psychiatric services that meet the needs of children, adolescents, older adults, and their families in the communities they serve. Our truly specialized treatment center creates life-changing results for those who are suffering with emotional and behavioral disorders in a residential treatment and acute hospitalization setting.
At Lakeland we have developed a series of specialized treatment tracks that will help us reach our goal of providing compassionate, results-based care for all of our patients and residents.
Adolescent Acute Care Program - This inpatient psychiatric treatment program is designed to help manage adolescent crisis situations. Those children and adolescents who are not properly functioning in aspects of everyday life usually benefit most from a more restrictive setting like the one offered at Lakeland. Each acute care program is individualized to each patient and includes individual psychotherapy, group sessions focusing on a number of different topics, and family therapy.
Adolescent Residential Program - The purpose of our residential program is to provide a therapeutic environment that will assist the resident in enhancing family, relational, educational, and social functioning, while at the same time developing adequate age-appropriate coping skills. The ultimate goal for treatment is to successfully reintegrate the resident into the community. This program is also individualized to each patient including individual psychotherapy, group sessions focusing on a number of different topics, and family therapy.
Older adult and Senior Program - HOPE is our adult psychiatric inpatient program that is designed to treat acute mental health disorders for adults age 65 and over. In this program we will provide confidential, personalized treatment utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. This includes participation in group therapy, individual therapy, and activity therapy. Patients and families will receive education on specific disorders, medications, and effective coping strategies. The overall goal of our program is to relieve symptoms, return patients to their best possible level of health and maximize their quality of life.
Lakeland Regional School - Students enrolled in LRS attend five classes per day with instruction in the core areas of English, mathematics, science and social studies in addition to physical education. Both individually and as a team, LRS teachers are committed to assisting each student to make sizable academic gains – tailored to individual needs – during his/her stay at Lakeland Behavioral Health. Emphasis in this school program is placed on each youngster’s success while at Lakeland Regional School. Of greater significance, however, is their ability to perform upon leaving Lakeland in a manner that will enable them to be recognized as positive, contributing members of society.
Military Family Program - Lakeland Behavioral Health System is certified by TRICARE, the health care program specifically for the families and survivors for active duty and retired members of uniformed services.
In addition to the wide variety of therapeutic approaches we offer at Lakeland we provide our patients with experiential programs that will help enhance the overall healing process. Some of these include:
- Stress reduction
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
- Expressive therapy
- Recreation therapy
- Pet therapy
