FAQs

Q – HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SON NEEDS THIS PROGRAM?

A – Before choosing any residential or therapeutic boarding school most parents have already tried working with local resources such as school counselors, church advisors,  family friends, social workers, and mental health counselors in attempts to address and resolve issues.

If you have exhausted these options, then Lakeside Academy may be the best next step for your son. We specialize in working with troubled adolescent boys and helping them get back on the right track.  Please let our Admissions counselors know more about your son’s specific issues so we can help him, and help your family heal.

Q – WHAT TYPE OF COUNSELING DO YOU OFFER?

A – We provide licensed chemical dependency treatment, mental health counseling, and cognitive-behavioral therapy — all based on the individual needs of each client.  Counseling sessions typically include individual therapy as well as group sessions. Our treatment interventions are designed to help clients manage their thinking, improve behaviors,  and recover from substance use, as necessary.
