Exclusively a Drug/Alcohol Treatment Center
Lakeside-Miliam specializes in drug and alcohol recovery only. While some other facilities provide dual diagnosis treatment, meaning they treat both addiction to a substance as well as a mental anxiety or disorder like PTSD, depression, or bipolar disorders, Lakeside-Miliam chooses to focus solely on addiction recovery.
Limited Aftercare Programs
While Lakeside-Miliam Recovery Centers have a core treatment concept that yields a 77% success rate, the focus of the program is placed more on physical health, education, counseling, and changing destructive patterns than in-depth aftercare programs. While there is an alumni association that will hold events, there is no formalized plan for continued treatment after an individual has left a Lakeside-Miliam facility.
Neither a Christian or SMART Recovery Based
Many recovery centers seeks to be heavily Christian centers, encouraging individuals to keep in touch with a higher power through prayer and scriptures study, often recognized as the 12-step program. Others seek to teach individuals they can overcome struggles by gaining insight into empowering themselves, also known as SMART based. At Lakeside-Miliam, neither of these popular approaches are taken. The centers seek to implement a different set of practices and those seeking after a Christian centered 12-step or SMART programs may need to go elsewhere.
The Bottom Line
If those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction reside in the Western Washington area and are looking for a treatment center with multiple locations allowing them to be closer to home and family Lakeside-Miliam will be an excellent option with 11 different facilities spread throughout the area.

However, if you want a specific program, like the 12-step or the SMART program, or are looking for a duel treatment solution to also help with other disorders, along with drug and alcohol addiction, an individual will need to select a different treatment provider. Also, if you need an extensive aftercare program, outside of occasional alumni meetings, could be beneficial for sustained success, then you should look elsewhere.
