Which program are you looking for?

Welcome to Acadiana Treatment Center

Acadiana Treatment Center is a place of peace, hope, and healing. On our campus, the pain of the past can be transformed into the bright hope of new possibility. When you choose Acadiana Treatment Center for yourself, your child, or another loved one, you can do so secure in the knowledge that you will be working with experienced professionals who are committed to providing superior, personalized care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

At Acadiana Treatment Center, our sole purpose is not to treat diseases. Instead, we’re focused on healing people (and, as often occurs, reuniting families). When an adult struggles with chemical dependency, or a teen acts out due to an acute psychiatric concern, the impact is never limited to the person who is dealing with the disorder. Family, friends, colleagues, and many others can be affected by these experiences. To help adolescents and adults achieve true and lasting healing, we work with them to develop the skills that will empower them to successfully rejoin their families, peer groups, and communities.

The day you arrive at our campus in Sunset, LA, can be an important day in your recovery journey. But we understand that the time you spend with us will just be one step on your path toward a healthier future. For this reason, all programming at Acadiana Treatment Center is designed with your long-term progress in mind. You can overcome the obstacles that have been preventing you from living a happier and healthier life. And we would be honored to help you get where you want to be.

Addiction Treatment for Adults

Acadiana Treatment Center offers a full continuum of comprehensive, personalized services to help adults age 18 and older achieve long-term recovery from substance abuse and addiction. We are also prepared to provide quality care for adults whose struggles with addiction are accompanied by certain co-occurring mental health disorders.

Acadiana Treatment Center takes a holistic approach to addiction care. This means that our programming is designed to help individuals heal in mind, body, and spirit. Because we understand the degree to which loved ones can be impacted by substance abuse and addiction, we also encourage family members to participate in regularly scheduled educational and counseling sessions.

Depending upon the nature and severity of each person’s needs, addiction treatment at Acadiana Treatment Center may include detoxification, residential treatment, extended residential care (ERC), partial hospitalization programming (PHP), intensive outpatient programming (IOP), and continuing care services. All elements of care at our adult addiction treatment center in Sunset, LA, are personalized according to the unique needs of each individual and provided in the manner that will best prepare them for long-term success.

No matter how many levels of care you complete with us, you will leave with a detailed discharge plan. This document will identify the resources that will help you to maintain and build upon the progress that you made while in our care.

Residential Psychiatric Care for Teens

Our Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, or PRTF, is a safe, highly structured, and extremely supportive environment for young people who have been struggling with one or more significant mental or behavioral health challenges. The PRTF accepts adolescents ages 12-17.

All admissions decisions are made on an individual basis following a close review of the young person’s needs, capabilities, and goals. In general, though, the Acadiana Treatment Center PRTF in Sunset, LA, may be the optimal treatment environment for an adolescent who has been demonstrating significant behavioral, cognitive, or emotional impairments. Adolescents who can benefit from our services have often had difficulties interacting in healthy and positive ways with their families, in school, at work, and in many other social settings.

While they are healing in the PRTF, young people will participate in an array of science-based, research-supported interventions. Each adolescent’s personalized treatment may include psychiatric, medical, psychological, social, nursing, recreational, and educational services.

We also have a vibrant family program to ensure that caregivers are incorporated into the treatment process to the greatest degree that is both possible and clinically appropriate. And, following each adolescent’s time in the PRTF, they and their family will receive a detailed discharge plan to connect them with the resources that will support their continued progress in the weeks and months to come.
