    LAKES DEPRESSION CENTER The First Sta ndalone SPRAVATO ® Treatment Center in the U.S. HOPE FOR YOUR TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION IS HERE ​ Welcome to Lakes Depression Center, a part of Lakes Psychiatric Center. We have done over 25,000 SPRAVATO treatments so we have the experience needed to provide the best outcome for you. Our new location in suite 2120 has 14 full time private rooms just for SPRAVATO so you will have a very comfortable treatment experience. We offer day, evening and weekend appointments. ​ SPRAVATO can have a rapid antidepressant response and is added on to an antidepressant and the rest of your regimen. It is the first new mechanism of action to treat depression that has come out in over 30 years . The initial course of treatment is twice a week for four weeks then generally once a week. It can be continued 2 to 4 times a month for maintenance, as long as it is needed. ​ I’m hoping that it can be effective for those of you who have not had an adequate response with currently available treatment. SPRAVATO is given through nasal inhalation and it must be given in the office. It requires 2 hours of medical monitoring before you are allowed to go home. I have an amazing team of caring RNs and assistants working 7 days a week to provide excellent care for you. You must have a ride home and you cannot drive for the rest of the day. This ride can be a family member, friend, or we also offer COVID safe private drivers for hire. After a good night's sleep you can drive and return to normal activities. There are physical effects that occur during the 2 hours after the treatment is given, but resolve by the time you are discharged. ​ Most insurances cover SPRAVATO treatments! Be brave and allow yourself to hope it will get better. Call or email and my SPRAVATO Clinical Manager and staff will respond to your inquiry and guide you through the process. Most insurances have coverage and no referral is needed. We look forward to helping you! ​ Lynne Lyons, MD Medical Director of Lakes Psychiatric Center and Lakes Depression Center ​ See the for more details See the FAQS at Please contact Stephanie Bednar, RN for more information about SPRAVATO© treatments.

    Here is what our patients say about our Spravato Treatments : For privacy reasons, the photos below are not of our patients. Have you wondered what it's like to use SPRAVATO® for your depression? Follow a Lakes Center patient as she takes her journey to beat depression with SPRAVATO. Becca (@spravatowme) is a Lakes Center patient who has been documenting her experience with SPRAVATO on TikTok . She has given us permission to share her link so that anyone else dealing with treatment resistant depression may see what it's like to heal with SPRAVATO! I have been getting the SPRAVATO® treatment from this office for a few weeks now. The office itself is very clean, cozy, and comfortable. The staff is phenomenal! Every nurse I've come across is just so kind, caring, knowledgeable, and go above and beyond to help. Thank you all at Lakes Depression Center for making this treatment a great experience! ​ - Ashley B My experience was very rewarding. My initial treatment was 9 weeks 2x per week. My first treatment I experienced a dissociative episode and could not communicate verbally. This lasted for a few minutes but to me it seemed longer. After further treatments and knowing what to expect the treatments were much easier. I even began to look forward to the treatments because they were relaxing and most importantly they were working. The room in which I received treatment was warm and inviting which added comfort to the whole experience. The nurses and aides were very knowledgeable and amazing and tended to my every need. (Snacks included!) I’ve treated with Lynne Lyons for the past 17 years, she always puts her patients needs above all else and I would recommend her without reservation. ​ - Luwetta H Excellent. Caring staff. If I could give them 6 stars I would. Cyril is the Man and Stephanie and Ann are excellent. The support staff is top notch. ​ - Michael S Where did you ever find those people at the clinic? How could you have assembled such a wonderful team - to a person? ​ ​I so look forward to my appointments to see friendly faces and, frankly, get treated like a queen. The patient rooms are quite well thought out and provide such a relaxing atmosphere. Having drivers available solves an almost insurmountable issue for some of us.​ ​Only negative I can see is that SPRAVATO needs to have a flavor enhancer added! Sometimes suckers are not enough!​ ​Keep up the good work...and give everyone a raise!​ ​ - Terry I have had nothing but a great experience. Everyone is so wonderful, they are more like family then nurses or doctors. I have wonderful experience with the treatment. I even got through Christmas with no tears. So wonderful. ​ - E P I visit the Lakes Depression Center for treatment with SPRAVATO. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Lyons and her wonderful staff! They truly care about you, your comfort and your well being. They respond promptly to messages and requests and will bend over backwards to help however they can. ​ Not only am I feeling better then I have in years, they gave me back hope. They encouraged me to keep going when I felt all hope was lost and I would never find anything to help me. The rooms are outfitted with care. They have heaters and fans so you can quickly adjust the temperature to your liking but what really stands out are the heated massage recliners! Seriously, when was the last time you were offered a recliner at an office?! They also offer you suckers and snacks; trust me use the suckers, the meds taste awful. ​ Go and see them, I promise you will not be disappointed in the care you receive. ​ - Katie M Great staff! I can’t say enough about them. Everyone is friendly and caring. ​ - Denise F The people who work here truly care about the health and well being of every person who walks through their doors. I have never felt so cared for by a staff. The treatments I receive here have honestly turned my life around. I couldn't recommend Lakes Depression Center more highly. ​ - Trisha P The staff here is incredibly professional, kind and compassionate. I felt that they really cared about me as a person, and were my cheerleaders in finding a way out of depression . Lynne Lyons, the director behind the Center, was so excellent at prescribing and dosing medications effectively that I quickly chose her as my primary psychiatrist. She is the reason I am no longer depressed, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. SPRAVATO is an option that can often help those with treatment-resistant depression, that is, for which traditional antidepressant medications are not working. While SPRAVATO did not single-handedly pull me out of depression, the caring staff were certainly a part of my emotional healing from it. ​ - Kimberly B The people there are so caring, efficient, and qualified. I feel safe putting my mental health in their hands. ​ - Emma K What a wonderful experience! Everyone treats you not as a patient, but as family. The whole process and accoutrements are so special and comfortable. The room where you spend your time is wonderfully appointed with lounge chair and TV. The treatments may start to work after the first dosage and you leave the office feeling so serene and peaceful. Having a driver from the office is such a blessing, as you cannot drive after treatment. Overall, just a positive life experience. ​ - Terry Y Wonderful staff. Caring, attentive, very professional. They Literally saved my life. ​ - Pamela R Really happy with the care I've received so far, they go the extra mile to help you which is so valuable when you are suffering from depression because it can be paralyzing and hard to take the steps needed to get care. ​ - Kim W Today was overwhelming… I was at the max 27 (on the PHQ9 depression scale) when I first came in and now after 4 months I am at 0. It’s changed my life and I can't thank you all enough for your love and your support and your treatment. So thank you. - A L I've been getting SPRAVATO treatments at Lakes Psychiatric Center for about a couple of years now. Dr. Lyons and nurse Stephanie Bednar are very caring and friendly people who genuinely care about their patients' mental health and well being. The weekly treatment has been a godsend for me. It has lowered my depression significantly and I am able to enjoy things again. I highly recommend Lakes Depression Center. If you have clinical depression it is a great place to check out. It just might lower your level of suffering and allow you to live life normally. ​ - Matt H I finished my 15th treatment last night and thought I’d give you some feedback about the clinic. Everyone, and I truly mean everyone, are super friendly, caring and helpful. I never feel like I’m being an inconvenience to anyone, even when I need assistance going to the bathroom mid-treatment. ​ They’re even getting familiar with my needs and habits. For instance, last night when I first walked into my room, they had already set out my favorite suckers (orange tootsie roll pops) and a cup of water and one of the fold-out desks for my wife. The nurse’s assistants also all seem to know that they don’t need to bring me any water until after they do the mid-session blood pressure check. ​ Regarding the nurses, all my interactions with Jill, Ann, Becky, Cyril and Heather have been great. They’re very caring and make sure they know how I’ve been doing since my last appointment before starting the treatment. They are extremely knowledgeable and take the time to explain things to me whenever it’s necessary. ​ You’ve really put together a great team at the clinic and should be very proud of them and what you’ve accomplished there. - Mark Here is what our patients say about us: Dr Lynne Lyons is rated a Top Doctor by Check out the reviews in this video Dr. Lyons is always available to me when I need her even in between visits and that’s a life saver. Sometimes you need help right away to keep your life under control and she understands that. She spends lots of time with every patient and truly gets to know you and listen and give advice as to what is going on in your life. She also knows medicine better than any Psychiatrist I have ever worked with. It didn’t take her very long to develop a regime for me. This review only speaks part of what she does, I could write a novel. I appreciate her so much. She is a huge part in my life being under control and me being a successful human being. Susan Deutsch is an excellent therapist. She fits you in last min because she understands sometimes life throws curve balls. She asks questions you would never think of exploring and listens deeply. I would recommend her wonderful guidance to anyone who needs a helping hand. ​ - Lauren D The staff are so helpful, knowledgeable and really caring. I feel at home during treatment. Very supportive staff. ​ - Jill Q The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. They are very caring. The Covid 19 protective measures taken are very self assuring. I always have a warm, safe and positive experience. ​ - Joni R This center is great! I really like working with Dr. Coram. She has been so helpful and knowledgeable. She referred me to their SPRAVATO program and it's been life changing. All of the staff at the psychiatric office and depression office are so awesome!! Cyril, Lisa, and Ann in particular are absolutely phenomenal! They have made my experience very comfortable and enjoyable, along with the other staff. Thank you all for helping me get my depression and anxiety I'm check ☺️ I 100% recommend their services! ​ - Ashley B The doctor actually cares about you and listens. Been going to my whole adult life she has saved me! ​ - Michelle T Very competent, genuinely committed to meeting the needs of its patients, both practical and emotional and to the success of their treatment. ​ - Arnold R Dr Lyons is a top notch psychiatrist. She is a doctor that cares about the patients health. I have been seeing Dr Lyons for 21 years, since I was 17. I would not want to see another psychiatrist after going to Dr Lyons. She is extremely smart and down to earth. Additionally, I see Terrie Browning as my therapist. She is the first therapist that I feel comfortable speaking with. She's knowledgeable and down to earth. - Heather I Very caring and they make you their priority. I believe they truly want to help make you better! ​ - Diana S I've had nothing but a great experience with Doctor Lyons and her staff 😊 and I've been seeing her since the late 1990s ​ - Chris C
