Amid the anxiety-driven COVID-19 fears, people struggling with substance use disorders can take comfort in knowing there is safety offered at a rehab facility. Lakeview Health is taking the current COVID-19 pandemic seriously, and our staff have implemented necessary protocols and precautions to continue offering treatment for those in need.

We recognize that just because the nation has shut a lot of things down, it doesn’t mean substance abuse and addiction go away. In fact, individuals under the stress of the uncertain situation could find themselves turning to alcohol or drugs to cope with their anxieties. While the world may feel like an unsafe place to be right now, should you find yourself needing a safe and comfortable place to detox from, a rehab center might just be that place.

People struggle with drug addiction for various reasons – and sometimes a person may not even know they have underlying factors that contribute to their addiction.

The environment at rehab will help you to escape from your typical environment into a drug-free setting where you meet caring experts who are passionate about helping you.
