Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers Overview

Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers provide quality, effective, and caring treatment services that have been customized to serve individuals who are finding it difficult to stop abusing drugs, as well as alcohol. The network of centers served the population in the Pacific Northwest region and was first established in 1983.

The network has expanded and now offers their services at nine different locations in the area, providing wider access for those who suffer from a substance abuse disorder. A variety of treatment solutions have also been introduced by the Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers in order to ensure they can address all patients who come to them for recovery.

One of the main goals of these centers is to provide patients with a more affordable option since recovery services can cost quite a lot of money at some facilities. They have provided assistance to thousands of people in the past, and they continue striving to provide a better future for everyone who steps through their doors.

Housing at Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers

The main branch of the Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers network at Kirkland has been fitted with the appropriate housing to cater toward patients who are in need of an inpatient or residential treatment. The program is most ideal for those patients who will not be able to fully recover from their addictions through the utilization of an outpatient program, but rather require constant monitoring and full detoxification for long-term success in the treatment of their substance abuse disorder.

Treatment Options at Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers

Treatment at any of the Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers always starts with a free clinical assessment, which would allow the counselor conducting the assessment to determine the needs of the particular patient. This would also help them decide which program would be most appropriate for the patient to help them recover quickly and successfully, regardless of the substance they are addicted to.

Both outpatient and inpatient programs are offered by these centers. Only the Kirkland center provides residential features for the inpatient programs. All other outpatient options that patients can be provided with can be accessed at the nine different facilities that the network has already found.

The goal of the inpatient treatment solutions that the network offers is to provide the patient with long-term support, which will ultimately help them prevent relapse and ensure they can become healthier, happier, and more successful individuals.

In addition to the inpatient services offered by these centers, patients can also gain access to the following outpatient programs and services:

  • Alcohol and Drug Informational Classes
  • Adolescent Outpatient Services
  • Intensive Outpatient Program
  • Deferred Prosecution Program
  • Family Education Program
  • Individual Counseling
  • Early Recovery Programs
  • Outpatient Follow-Up

Payment Options at Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers

Specific payment details are not provided on the network’s official website, but most major insurance providers would cover the costs of the services provided by the center. Additionally, patients who are in need of the services that are offered by these facilities can get in touch with one of their financial counselors in order to discuss the possibility of monthly payment options when the full amount payable is out of reach for the patient.

Each patient will be provided a customized solution in order to help them achieve full recovery from their addictions. Patients should expect to pay around $10,000 for a 30-day treatment plan, which is significantly lower than the majority of other addiction centers in the area.
