About Lakeview Health
Lakeview Health is comprised of two national drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers at The Woodlands, Texas, and Jacksonville, Florida. Our specialized programs include medical detox, inpatient rehab, residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and aftercare services among others. We also treat co-occurring conditions. Some of our patients have both mental health and substance abuse conditions. Research has shown that treating both conditions simultaneously leads to the most beneficial results. Dual diagnosis treatment might include a combination of medication, counseling, group therapy, as well as innovative treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). This treatment works well for those who may be depressed or have not responded well to other types of medical care in the past.
Our programs are customized to meet the needs of each unique patient we see. After we design the program, patients can begin gender-specific treatment at our beautiful Jacksonville, Florida campus. Men and women develop addictions, enter treatment, and respond to that treatment differently. By using gender-specific treatment, the staff at Lakeview Health can address these distinct issues and help our patients reach a higher potential of lasting recovery.
As part of our gender-specific approach to treatment, Lakeview Health has The Star for Men and The Rose for Women. Each campus offers all the necessities our patients need to heal their bodies, minds, and souls. This includes a state-of-the-art gym and equipment, gorgeous sitting areas, a yoga studio, a recreation area, lap pool and a dining room where chef-prepared meals are served. The facility also has semi-private patient rooms to relax during or at the end of the day. Every aspect of both our addiction treatment centers was planned to ensure our patients receive the care and relaxation they need to heal themselves from the inside out.
Treatment doesn’t have to be frightening, foreboding or stressful. Lakeview Health strives to make each patient comfortable while working toward a positive recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.
