An Overview of Lakeland, NJ

The personal injury attorneys in Lakeland, NJ, at Garden State Justice Group would like to share details on the community along with some of its great attributes.


The unincorporated community of Lakeland helps form Gloucester Township that is situated in the western region of Camden County, New Jersey. The community is surrounded by Blackwood, Turnersville, Washington Township, Fairview, Grenloch, and Garden City neighborhoods. Some of the roadways that travel in the area include County House Road, Collier Drive, Woodbury-Turnersville Road, and Blackwoodtown Road. The neighborhood falls under the area code of 856 and has an elevation of 49 feet. 


The area's history centers around the historical Camden County Insane Asylum. The asylum admitted its first patient in 1803. Initially, the facility housed 25 to 30 patients that suffered from a range of mental issues, epilepsy, and dementia. As the facility grew, so did the need for additional space for the patients, and so it began its expansion. By 1925, it grew even to include a nurse's residence and a service bridge across the ravine with access to the administration building. Many experimental forms of treatment were used that included:

  • shock 
  • lobotomy
  • a tranquilizer chair
  • a gyrator wheel

From the 1960s to the 1980s, the facility faced accusations of inefficient operating methods. It merged with Ancora Psychiatric Hospital in 1998 and is still operating as a 158-bed Behavioral Health facility. Now known as the Camden County Health Services Center, it offers its patients a more modernized form of psychiatric care, including state-of-the-art procedures, counseling, and even prescriptions of antipsychotics.
