About Lakeland Behavioral Health System

Specializing in care for children, adolescents & seniors

Lakeland Behavioral Health System is a premier treatment center located in the Midwestern city of Springfield, Missouri. Lakeland has provided high-quality recovery care for more than 30 years, with patient-specific programs addressing a range of mental health issues (including disorders like chronic anxiety, suicidal ideation, PTSD, and schizophrenia) as well as co-occurring substance abuse disorders.

Individually-designed treatment programs are available for adults over the age of 60 and children and adolescents between the ages of 9 and 20. Programs are separated by age, gender, and type of problem behavior, then personalized based on emotional and mental health needs. Lakeland offers inpatient and residential area treatment, independently prescribed to maximize each patient’s opportunity for successful, lifelong recovery. Lakeland’s treatment services are evidence-based and continuously updated by our medical professionals.

We provide round-the-clock care beginning with a thorough assessment, a complete diagnosis, and close guidance on achieving and maintaining stabilization. We then establish a follow-on plan after care ends. Inpatient programs take anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks, while residential programs can last between 3 months and a year.

Care services include individual psychotherapy, family therapy, community/process groups, life skills training, safety and relapse prevention, anger management, recreational therapy, and creative expression activities that include art, music, cinema, play, and therapeutic pet therapy.

Rachel, the social worker, is very kind, compassionate and truly cares for the patients. She has went above and beyond to help my son find the answers to his problems. She is sympathetic to my hurt, struggles and emotional pain. I'm thankful for her and her assistance.

Rena R.

My son got the much needed help at your hospital. He is doing very well since coming home. Thanks for taking the time with him to work through his needs.

Jim M.

We had a great experience with the staff for our daughter’s stay here. The staff continued to follow up and make suggestions that truly worked for our family.

Kristina W.

My child was admitted to Lakeland. The staff was great, they consistently made contact with me about my child's progress and with any concerns. They helped me to set up outpatient therapy in my rural area before discharge. My child also felt safe, and we'll cared for while being in this facility. I didn't have any negative experience with Lakeland at all.
