Lakeside Recovery to expand

Lakeside Recovery, a drug and alcohol addiction treatment facility located at North Central Health Care, will expand its services as part of the organization’s five-year capital plan, interim CEO Michael Loy says.

The plan calls for NCHC to move Lakeside Recovery into a new space, growing the program from six to 22 beds. That expansion could happen in 2017 or 2018, Loy told City Pages.

NCHC has seen tremendous success with the 21-day treatment program, but space is limited and there is a 150-day waiting list to enter the program. County leaders have identified drug treatment as a priority in the county and Lakeside Recovery is a step toward filling the needs of residents with AODA issues.
