Specialization

  • Individual Therapy

    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

It was a disappointing stay. As far as Meridian facilities are concerned this was the best but some of the staff lacked discretion. When I brought the matter up it only seemed to cause it to worsen. Though I can’t say without assumption, it felt retaliatory. Comments of mine seemed to be struck down for the mere sake of being contrarian and clients were given non-answers or deceptions in order to quiet them. I didn’t feel safe or respected at Lake Shore save for the nursing staff whom were awesome and most of the technicians.

    I went to this facility twice. The first time was amazing. My counselor was the most caring and understanding person in the world, but tough. The second time was terrible. My first counselor quit because of how poorly they treat their employees. I ended up with a counselor who hated his job and literally said every morning that he couldn\'t wait until he could go home. The management that had nothing to do with our treatment got involved in people\'s programs and a lot of patients/clients left. One staff member in particular had personal problems with many of the clients. The food was not nutritious and there was very little exercise involved. I don\'t recommend this place at all. They are more concerned about profits instead of people\'s needs.
