Medical and Psychiatric Care at Lakeview Health

Long-term exposure to alcohol and drugs of abuse has serious consequences for your body, brain, and emotional health. While you’re actively drinking or using, alcohol and drugs slowly damage your internal organs, alter your brain chemistry, and mask co-occurring mental health disorders. When you choose to enter treatment, you’re making a choice that involves more than stopping your addictive behaviors and learning to live without intoxicants: it means uncovering physical and emotional imbalances that often require medical and psychiatric supervision to address and resolve without causing more damage.

Lakeview Health has full-time, fully licensed medical professionals on-site to manage medication, monitor detox, and oversee all recovery activities.

Full Support Across the Continuum of Care

Our medical and psychiatric staff is involved in all levels of your treatment, from intake to discharge. We closely monitor withdrawal symptoms during detox and use medication as needed to help relieve discomfort you may experience as your body and brain react to the absence of alcohol and drugs. We design your recovery plan around co-occurring disorders and/or physical issues that arise during any phase of treatment, and we’re equipped to address almost any addiction-related medical or psychiatric problem – large or small – you encounter during your stay with us.

On-Site Medical and Psychiatric Services

Our medical team is an integral part of our full-time staff, which means they’re a consistent part of your recovery journey. We don’t use affiliate or consulting doctors and nurses like most addiction treatment centers. At Lakeview Health, you won’t have to wait for an appointment to adjust medication or jump through hoops to see a physician. Our medical staff is always nearby. They’re experienced, they have all the relevant medical records and documentation in your file, and they know exactly where you are in the treatment process. They’re experts in addiction and recovery, trained in the latest therapeutic techniques and methods. Our team is your team, ready when you need them.

Meet the Team

The Lakeview Health medical and psychiatric team includes board certified, licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists, addiction physicians, physician’s assistants, and nurse practitioners. We have one of the most robust and respected addiction treatment medical departments in the country.
