Lakeview Health Addiction Resources
Addiction can be devastating, not to mention life-threatening. Those who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction can face problems with their physical and mental health, finances, and relationships. If you’ve seen your loved one change as a result of addiction, it can be difficult to know how to help them heal.
Addiction is a chronic disease, and without the right addiction treatment, it can be difficult to overcome. Many individuals who go through a period of sobriety relapse at some point. However, a high-quality treatment program can help them work through the underlying causes of addiction and develop healthy coping skills for lifelong sobriety. At Lakeview Health, we offer comprehensive rehab programs. Detox, residential treatment, and outpatient programs help our clients rebuild their lives on the road to recovery.
In addition, we offer a number of resources to promote long-term sobriety. From our aftercare and alumni programs to family therapy, we help the individuals in our care address addiction’s impact on every aspect of their lives. And to help family members, employers, and healthcare professionals provide support, we offer a streamlined referrals and admissions process.
Reach out to Lakeview Health at 866.704.7692 today to learn more about our addiction treatment programs and the resources we offer. If you are looking to make a referral for a friend, loved one, employee, or client, our team of difference-makers can help you navigate this process as well.
How Can Addiction Resources Help Those in Recovery?
Regardless of the type of addiction and substance abuse, there is a need for proper professional resources. Between 40 and 60 percent of people treated for addiction relapse within a year. However, having access to ongoing therapy and support can help many of those in recovery maintain sobriety long-term.
Lakeview Health, located in Jacksonville, FL, is a prime example of an advanced addiction treatment and recovery center. We offer a wealth of resources aimed at improving the experience of the client while in treatment. In addition, these resources are important to reduce the chances of relapsing after the treatment.
Our resources help those in recovery by:
- Educating friends and family members about addiction
- Providing ongoing support in recovery after an individual has finished treatment
- Assisting employers in helping those in recovery transition back into the workplace
- Helping healthcare professionals make informed decisions for their clients
Reducing the Stigma of Addiction
Some individuals can hesitate to begin treatment due to concerns about what the people in their lives might think. However, the more that families and friends of those with addiction issues learn about the condition, the more the stigma surrounding treatment disappears. Those who struggle with addiction have developed a dependency on drugs or alcohol, and stopping cold turkey is often impossible due to withdrawal symptoms, which can be painful, uncomfortable, and even life-threatening. Overcoming addiction is not a matter of willpower. Instead, it has to do with having support, medical care, and therapy that addresses the underlying causes of addiction.
Our resources can help to reduce the stigma surrounding addiction. If you are concerned about what others will think when you seek out treatment, consider that receiving treatment will help you be your best self in the future.
Our Addiction Resources for Families
Support from friends, family, and significant others is an essential part of addiction treatment and long-term recovery. We encourage you to get involved in your loved one’s treatment by learning more about addiction, receiving counseling, and even joining a support group. If your loved one is a patient at Lakeview Health, we recommend that you:
- Complete our family packet (mailed to you upon request)
- Become educated about the disease of addiction
- Attend all phone sessions with the patient’s primary therapist, and follow his or her recommendations
- Participate in our three-day Family Treatment Program (for immediate family only)
- Attend local Al-Anon 12-step support groups for friends and family of addicts or alcoholics
- Follow the suggestions of the patient’s primary therapist
Even though only one person in your family might be battling addiction, the effects are usually far-reaching. Family relationships are destroyed or become dysfunctional due to the addiction. Spouses, children, partners, and the immediate family of the patient are also greatly affected. To ensure that everyone in this family circle recovers, group therapy is highly recommended.
Lakeview Health in Florida has a residential program targeting families. This three-day family workshop aims to bridge the gaps brought about by the addictive habit. In addition to healing any hurt in the family, our workshop also helps mend any broken relationships and restores balance in the family. We place emphasis on healthy coping skills and effective communication strategies.
In addition, this program has workshops on relapse prevention. You and your family will sign a contract committing yourself to full recovery. This makes every family member accountable for healing and recovery.
Resources for Employers
At Lakeview Health, we pride ourselves on our pain recovery and restorative rehabilitation program. This program helps patients with substance abuse history to recover and return to work. Our program addresses all aspects of recovery, namely the medical, psychological, and physical aspects.
This program deals with various kinds of chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and addictions to non-narcotic medications. Furthermore, patients with either physical or psychological trauma can also benefit from this program.
What makes the program so special is that there is a referral coordinator who will handle all issues about the program. This covers the treatment, insurance coverage, and aftercare planning procedures.
Addiction Resources for Professionals

Most importantly, there are on-site visits with the patient and their therapist to discuss progress. In addition, there is a weekly phone update with a therapist to monitor the process.
Addiction Resources for Alumni
At Lakeview Health, perfectly understand how easy it is to relapse. The recovery process is not an easy one. That is why we have in place an alumni program to help our patients strengthen their healthy coping skills so they can continue on their journey to recovery.
We have an amazing alumni network in many cities in the country. These factors make the alumni program irresistible:
