Why Choose Acadiana Treatment Center

Acadiana Treatment Center is committed to changing the lives of adolescents by providing comprehensive behavioral health treatment services that are designed to meet each person’s unique needs. We aim to provide quality services for the young people who receive care at our facility, along with effective support for their families.

Comprehensive Services

At Acadiana Treatment Center, we’re proud to offer expert care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Located in Sunset, Louisiana, close to Lafayette, our facility serves adolescents ages 12-17 who need structured support in a safe treatment environment. 

Our leading residential program is a trusted source of care for young people who have a variety of behavioral health concerns. These include conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance use disorders.  

Our goal at Acadiana Treatment Center is to meet each client where they are and help them get to where they want to be. To accomplish this, we provide each person with a thorough assessment that gives us a detailed picture of the challenges they have been facing. 

From there, we create an individualized treatment plan that can support the young person’s needs and help them achieve their short- and long-term goals. Adolescents remain in our residential program for about four to six months, receiving focused support to acquire skills and develop healthy coping strategies. Clients also participate in our educational program, which can help them continue to meet their academic goals.

Collaborative Treatment Approach

At the heart of our premier residential program are our talented and dedicated staff members. These experts can help guide your child on their path to healing and better well-being.  

But our staff members are not the only ones who will play a key role in your child’s treatment journey. We consider the specific needs, strengths, abilities, and preferences of each young person we work with. And we work to empower each child or adolescent so that they can become their own best advocate.  

At Acadiana Treatment Center, we can also work collaboratively with clients’ families and referral sources to help deliver quality treatment outcomes for each young person. Ways we may work with family members and referral sources include: 

  • Offering family therapy sessions with a qualified social worker or counselor  
  • Working with the child and their guardian on discharge planning and aftercare needs 
  • Collaborating with referral sources when appropriate, particularly during discharge 

We want your child to feel supported and empowered when they receive treatment at our campus in Sunset, Louisiana. We believe that providing a collaborative, person-centered approach can help them as they work to improve their health and build a fulfilling life.

Diverse Therapies & Services

Because each young person who receives care at Acadiana Treatment Center has their own goals and life experiences, we customize each person’s treatment plan to allow them the best chance of success. We offer a diverse set of therapies and services that can support your child’s needs at their particular stage of life.
