A – As a Christian Behavior and Recovery Center, we’ve used Christian principles to develop our program and curriculum, and we rely on those principles in all that we do. While at Lakeside Academy, we encourage each student to develop his own personal relationship with Christ.
A- Studies show that it often takes a full year for adolescents to let go of bad habits and create new healthy behaviors. When boys graduate from our program, most admit to us (and their parents) that “real changes” in their thinking and values started to take place after 6-9 months at Lakeside Academy… and only then did they dig in to complete the program and make true and lasting changes.
Our program is made up of 4-levels and typically takes 12 months to complete, although some complete it in as few as 9 months. Our goal is to set your son up for long-term success in life; for long-term success we strongly encourage a long-term program.
A – Our services at Lakeside Academy include general program costs, chemical dependency and mental health treatment services, behavioral therapy, plus room and board. There is no additional charge for client enrollment in the local Southwest Metro school district (Intermediate school district 288).
For licensed chemical dependency treatment and mental health services:
The cost of services for your son will depend on your son’s needs as assessed during a clinical evaluation, and in combination with a review of applicable healthcare insurance. Our goal is to minimize your out of pocket expenses, while ensuring your son receives the appropriate level of services and care. MN residents may qualify for additional funding support; our Admissions team will provide more information.
For therapeutic boarding school and behavioral health services:
Financial assistance may be available to MN residents based on need. Please contact our admissions team to discuss costs.
Health/Medical insurance does not cover tuition for residential behavioral programs. However, if supplemental mental health, drug treatment, or other medical services are required while your son is enrolled at Lakeside Academy, then personal insurance may cover a portion of costs.
