Notes: I am interning at Lakeside Crisis Stabilization Center located in Bloomingdale, Georgia. On the treatment plan, goals are smart, and person centered. The goals are created by clients not staff. The treatment plan is part of state requirements. All services here are required on the treatment plan.
