Lakeview Health Helps Employees Dependent on Prescription Opioids Through Its Pain Recovery and Restorative Rehabilitation Program So Employees Can Return to Work
Utilizing an integrative approach that addresses the medical, psychological, and physical aspects of recovery, employees with any of the diagnoses or combination of diagnoses below may be considered appropriate for Lakeview Health.
The Lakeview Health multidisciplinary team is led by board-certified medical and psychiatric providers along with Lakeview therapists and nurses. The team is committed to ensuring Employees, and other individuals treated, have the skills and healthy coping strategies in place at the time of discharge that are necessary for a smooth transition returning to work and to the life they enjoyed previously.
Lakeview Health continuously assesses, monitors, and reports on progress and outcomes during each Employee’s stay and through the first year post-discharge. Medical professionals and referral and payment sources have repeatedly entrusted Lakeview Health over the past 17 years indicating a very high level of satisfaction with the outcomes achieved.
Lakeview Health understands the specific needs of Employees, Employers, Adjusters, and Nurse Case Managers when it comes to Opioid Addiction with Complaints of Persistent Pain
We understand that seeking help may come with challenges, which is why we have a referral coordinator to help employees and employers navigate the process. Our referral coordinator will provide you with information about treatment, benefits coverage, and explain the aftercare planning process to get each individual healthy and back to work. Fill out the form below to start the referral process for yourself or an employee.
Mark M. Gerges, MD is the Utilization Review Director at Lakeview Health and oversees the department comprised of six physicians. Dr. Gerges supervises the entire process from admission through discharge of a patient to ensure benefits are being used accordingly and not in excess. He strongly believes in getting patients healthy and back to the workplace. Dr. Gerges completed his training through Florida Hospitals, and worked with many specialties, including orthopedics, reconstruction, and hand surgery, as well as pain management for related issues. Sadly, patients fall ill to their addiction and need extra help overcoming their self-conceived notion of requiring opiate and other mood altering substances to maintain pain control. Utilizing medical and clinical treatment helps patients get back to work.
Lakeview Health values its partnerships with Employers, Adjusters, and Case Managers. To refer an Employee, Lakeview Referral Coordinators are available 24/7.
