Integrative Health at Lakeview Health
Lakeview Health is an addiction treatment center – that’s clear from the moment you land here on our website or hear about us through a referring professional or alumnus. Addiction and substance use disorders are our specialty, and everyone on our staff is committed to their work in addiction treatment and recovery. Many members of our team have been through rehab themselves, or have experienced the pain of addiction through proximity to the struggles of loved ones, family, or friends. Like our patients, we’ve walked many paths to arrive where we are today, and all our paths have led us to one place: Lakeview Health. Everyone from our Leadership Team to our Medical & Psychiatric Team, Clinical Staff, Recovery Coaches, Health & Wellness Team, and Head Chef share a commitment to helping you achieve and maintain lifelong sobriety.
But there’s more to it than that.
Just as you, as a person, are far more than your addiction or substance use disorder, our mission goes far beyond treating your addiction. Our goal is to treat the whole person – mind, body, and soul – to help you reach a state of total health. We embrace the definition of health proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in their founding charter:
Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
This approach is to health and medicine is called integrative because it seeks to unite all aspects of a person – biological, psychological, and social – into a single whole, rather than a sum of separate, unrelated parts.
This diagram illustrates our approach to integrative health.
Sobriety is the core of your health and the center of our integrative model. As a recovering addict, establishing abstinence – through our medically monitored detox program – comes first. Then, with your commitment and the guidance of our clinical team, we collaborate to restore and rebuild the eight essential elements that support a balanced mind, body, and spirit.
