My son arrived at Lakeland on August 29th 2014 Since has been thrown back and forth from day to day by different nurses and staff!! One day in yellow zone then the next day another staff member is saying he's still in stage red! Which is causing even more distress for my child!! We his mother and father are not being contacted in any circumstance with updates on what is going on with our son! One example...I call daily to check on him and I'm not being told what is going on with my son! Most often when I call it's the same, he's quiet and reserved, then we receive a call from our sons Lawyer telling us about an incident that had taken place! No call from Lakeland, no nothing, I his mother had to call myself and ask specifically what was going on and then I was told!! What on earth? How is this place even open!? Not one staff member (nurse) gives the same answer, same reason, same anything!! Come to find out he's lost 5lbs since arriving!! He's deepening in depression!! My son went 33 days without seeing the outside world, it took me showing up and requesting them to let him go outside to be able to see the sky, feel the sun shine down on him, feel a fresh breeze and smell the freshness!! Why are these "KIDS" being treated like caged animals!?? Adult prisoners in adult facilities are treated better than these poor kids!! It's just unimaginable to me how this is happening and why!! I'm a mother of a child that is having to live in this facility of hell! Oh and I'm not at all happy! This is not where I will be stopping either! Funny I read someone's post on here about this is a professional facility and even asks professional advice from these so called "professionals" I would love to ask you...has your son been put in this so called Professional place...no they haven't! So please explain to me HOW you can post anything at all without your own child staying in this place? I know my child has done wrong but let me say that one more time....my CHILD!! Not an ADULT!! There have been a few staff members that I have thought a lot of but I'm darn surely questioning them now as well!! Completely and totally Disgusted!!! One of many more very upset parents!!!!

In response to what the previous reviewer said, Lakeland is obligated by law to keep patient records confidential. Lakeland is a well run, caring center to help with children. I know many people who work there and have discussed my own children with many of them, and my own wife is in contact to work in this institution. They have integrity and professionalism.
