Inpatient - Adult

Lakeview Center looks at the whole person in an effort to balance the mind, body and spirit. We listen to each individual who comes to us for help to assess and determine the most effective, personal recovery plan. First and foremost we want you to understand that our goal is to serve you with compassion and dignity.

In some circumstances an inpatient treatment plan may be best. We have several evidence-based, inpatient programs that include assessment, detoxification, counseling and long-term psychiatric treatment. We also provide community-based linkage services to help you when you return home. Our comprehensive services yield many options.

Acute Stabilization Unit (ASU)

The Acute Stabilization Unit (ASU) is located on Lakeview Center’s main campus and is a 10-bed crisis stabilization and medically supervised drug and alcohol detoxification facility that serves people who are 18 years old and older. Our ASU team also sees people who are experiencing serious and acute mental illness, substance abuse impairment and co-occurring mental illness. A screening process takes place to determine whether voluntary or involuntary criteria is met for admission. This program is governed by the Florida Mental Health or Baker Act/Marchman Act (Florida Statute 394 & 397/Chapters 65D-30 and 65E-12 and 65E-15 Florida Administrative Code).

The average length of stay is three to five days. When clients leave this facility, we go a step further to help link them to community-based services that support them while living at home. We also provide outpatient or residential services. For more information about ASU services, please call  850.469.3495.
