Lakeview Health

1900 Corporate Square Blvd, Jacksonville, Florida, 32216
Treatment at Lakeview Health is not just focused on the addiction but is designed to go deeper. We use a whole person approach to treatment. By identifying and addressing underlying issues, like anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, we go beyond the surface to comprehensively treat the root of addiction. Our medical and psychiatric experts help individuals learn ways to work through these issues during their stay to manage the source of the problem. Another key aspect of the Lakeview Health philosophy is our gender-responsive approach. Addiction is a very different experience for men and women—from its roots to behaviors and contributing factors. That’s why our treatment is designed to meet men and women’s unique needs.
