Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Lakeview Health Systems, an award-winning treatment center for drug and alcohol addiction, broke ground this past spring as part of a plan to bring services to more people in need of addiction treatment. We are proud to announce the completion and opening of our new facility. The grand opening will take place on November 9th, 2011.
For years, men and women travelled to Jacksonville, FL to receive the comprehensive treatment provided at Lakeview Health Systems. This expansion, which has been in the planning stages for two years, is now a reality with our new state of the art facility.
The expansion includes three separate treatment areas: a 60 bed detox unit and inpatient residential building, a large lecture facility, and a third area dedicated to classrooms and administrative offices. These additions provide patients and staff with increased space enabling Lakeview Health Systems to continue to improve our treatment services.
Lakeview Health Systems, known for its quality, multidisciplinary medically based detoxification and addiction treatment programs, will still provide its true dual diagnosed program, its award winning, evidence-based Freedom Rings GLBTQ program, along with other specialty programs such as its Christian tract and women’s tract. Our staff is onsite 24 hours a day, are certified addiction specialists ranging from medical physicians, nurses, therapists or clinicians.
Lakeview Health Systems is licensed and accredited by the Joint Commission and is a recipient of the Gold Seal for excellence in service in the behavioral health care industry by the Joint Commission. In these trying economic times, Lakeview Health Systems is cognizant of the ever growing need for treatment beds. With 21.8 million Americans older than 12 using illicit drugs in 2009 combined with another 130.6 million Americans older than 12 using alcohol, our expansion is an attempt to address this serious treatment shortage with our continued pledge to excellence in treatment.
