Portraits of Recovery is a celebration of those in recovery and the friends and family who supported them along the way. Too often we focus on the “before,” how the addiction began or what life in active addiction may have been like. The focus of Portraits is to highlight the life that is possible after addiction – the opportunities and the strong relationships that can be established along the path to recovery.
“After many failed attempts, Lakeview was the different experience I was looking for…
Lakeview has been the turning point in my recovery. With a focus on gender-specific care and underlying issues, I have finally worked through the things that kept me in active addiction. It’s been amazing to know that the staff and alumni were and will always be there to support and encourage me.”

“This dual diagnosis treatment center not only saved my life, but also helped me so very much with my major depression, anxiety and grief!
Everyone was truly amazing at Lakeview! I’ve been trying to bury so much pain from trauma my entire life with the use of drugs. And grieving over the loss of my Dad and so many other family members. I feel so much better! And not to mention the extra money I know have to actually be able to buy the things I want! Thank you the Lakeview staff, you are all amazing and caring people! I will never forget any of you and what you’ve done for me and my family!”
— Rachel S.
“My life is 100% better than it was in my addiction…
Lakeview changed my life, and not just with drug use. When I entered Lakeview I was at the end, no hope and no love for myself. Lakeview changed all that — I stopped making bad choices for my life, I shut up and listened for a chance. Lakeview has the tools to get you through this if you really want it. I can look myself in the mirror and I am proud of who I see. It is a long road, but the rewards are so definitely worth it.”
— Josh M.
“The doctors and the therapists really care about each individual…
Lakeview helped me in ways I didn’t think possible. The classes are amazing — very informative and therapeutic. Mel Wegner is by far the best person there; she guided me when I didn’t know how to do it myself. I’d HIGHLY recommend Lakeview to anyone.”
— Katie H.
“It’s truly amazing how the experience while in treatment helped me become who I am today and I’m loving every minute of it…
Looking back now that I am sober, Lakeview planted the seed. I am so grateful for the staff and the treatment I received while at Lakeview. Thanks to Lakeview, I can now live a quality healthy life.”

“Lakeview helped me save my life…
The staff was amazing and really helped me get to the core of my addiction. I truly recommend doing alumni events afterwards. All the members of the alumni group have kept in contact with me and have helped with my recovery.”

“I will forever be grateful to the care and treatment he received while there…
My son went to Lakeview back in 2015. He remains clean and sober. Thank you for being the right place at the right time.”
— Carol D.
“I’ve been clean and sober for over 15 years…
I went to Lakeview when I had a rampant rack habit. I hated it at first, but once I accepted that I was there and decided to make the best of it, I really learned a lot about myself. I´ve been clean and sober for 15 years now and I still go through my books and notes of encouragement from my time there.
— Nicole R.
“Besides the facility being first class, the staff is amazing and they truly care and will go above and beyond to get you on the path to sobriety…
and give you the skills needed to maintain a healthy sober life. I could not have done it without them.”

“If you have lost yourself and control of your life due to addiction, then you need to come here — it will be the best gift you ever give yourself!
I am so thankful for Lakeview! The entire staff was friendly and supportive. I was nervous coming to treatment for the first time, but I don’t really think I could have picked a better place. Lakeview is a very well run facility with two goals: your sobriety and giving you the tools to live a healthy, happy and spiritually connected life.”
— Emily P.
“Lakeview was an amazing experience for me…
All the other patients became like brothers to me, which was awesome. I definitely feel that they gave me all the tools to stay sober and beat alcoholism for good.

“Lakeview is the place to go when you feel like there’s nowhere else to go…
The staff is amazing ,their fellowship is amazing! I learned so much about myself and how to stay sober that I actually want to stay sober and continue on the life that they’ve shown me I deserve! I put a lot of hard work but they put more work into me that I could have ever expected! Whenever you need something, someone is always there to help; not just the staff but the women that you are in recovery with! I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a facility to go to.”
— Chazin T.
“Thank you Lakeview Heal for providing the fundamentals for my journey…
It has been 6 years clean and sober and I feel extremely good about life. All my family, friends and loved ones are intact. Thank God for His Grace and Mercy!”

“You have so many staff there to help you, cheer you on, and truly be in your court. They CARE and it shows…
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Lakeview Health. The most important being the staff there — they are what makes Lakeview. The facility is very nice and spa-like, all in all a cheerful place. Both the pool and the gym are extremely nice, with the gym providing professional trainers at your disposal every day. The menu there provides many options for food, so if you do not like the main course for a meal there is also something the kitchen can make you and there is also a salad bar. I actually was sad to leave Lakeview — I will forever be grateful for this facility and the wonderful group of people that work there.”
