Services at Lakeside for Children
Services at Lakeside for Children are delivered by Lakeside Academy, Sequel Youth & Family Services’ staff-secure residential program operating on our campus.
Lakeside Academy staff members take a strict discipline approach that focuses on the confrontation and redirection of negative behavior while recognizing desired, positive behavior. Throughout a student’s stay, they are challenged to analyze failures and experience success in nearly every area of life.
Although a youth may have had difficult times in the past, which we need to acknowledge and help them work through, Lakeside Academy staff does not allow students to use those past experiences as excuses to behave negatively. Although Lakeside Academy utilizes a variety of treatment approaches to help students address their issues, the backbone of treatment is making students aware of their behaviors and helping them to abandon the unacceptable behaviors and develop more appropriate behaviors.
