As a leading provider of psychiatric services to children and seniors in all of the Quad states area, Lakeland Behavioral Health offers a wide range of specialized programs to meet each and every one of the clients' needs. Lakeland offers adolescent acute care programs to children ages 4 to 11 and ages 12 to 17. Lakeland also offers residential treatment programs for boy’s ages 9 to 14, male teens ages 15 to 20, and girls ages 9 to 20. Understanding the importance of the patient's education needs, Lakeland Regional School (LRS) has earned national accreditation and receives annual approval in Arkansas, Missouri, and Nebraska, serving the patients during their stay.
Lakeland Behavioral Health System has developed a series of specialized treatment tracks to meet the various mental health needs of our adolescent and senior adult patients. Our residential program provides intense, individualized, comprehensive treatment for those children and adolescents who demonstrate severe emotional behavior problems prohibiting them from living in a less restrictive community environment. Residents who are admitted to Lakeland’s Residential Treatment Program require more intensive services than found in outpatient services and/or longer term treatment that acute care settings provide. Our Acute, inpatient psychiatric treatment program is designed to manage crisis situations. Children and adolescents who are generally out of control, are expressing a desire to harm themselves or others, and are not functioning in aspects of everyday life are usually treated in this setting. Additionally, HOPE is our Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Program at Lakeland Behavioral Health System and is designed to treat acute mental health disorders for adults age 65 and over. Finally,
Lakeland Behavioral Health has a region school program designed to help children continue their schooling while receiving the mental health treatment they need.
Admission to Lakeland is based on the presence of dangerous behavior to themselves or others, destruction of property, the inability to function socially or educationally, pre-existing psychiatric conditions and no significant progress with outpatient treatment. We help children, adolescents, and their families who are struggling with:
· Behavior and Impulse Disorders
· Self-Injurious Behaviors
· PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
· Reactive Attachment Disorder
· Mood Disorders
· Suicidal ideations
· Sexually Maladaptive Behaviors
When you call Lakeland we will provide you with a free, confidential assessment that will help us determine the most appropriate level of care and the exact treatment needs of the patient. Additionally, our Intake Counselors are available 24/7 to pre-screen referrals, to consult with physicians and other professional referral providers to discuss the child or senior in question, and supply information about our programs to enable you to decide if one of our treatment options is the best fit.
