At Acadiana Treatment Center, we understand that finding quality care for your child or loved one can be overwhelming. For this reason, we’ve designed our admissions process to be as stress-free as possible. From the moment you walk through our doors or call our admissions department, we want you to feel supported as you help your loved one find the treatment they need.
Our Admissions Criteria
At our treatment center in Sunset, Louisiana, we offer residential programming for adolescents ages 12-17 who are suffering from a variety of behavioral health concerns, including:
- Oppositional defiant disorder
- Conduct disorder
The Admissions Process
When you reach out to our admissions team, our knowledgeable staff members will take the time to understand your concerns so that they can help put your mind at ease. We’ll do our best to answer any questions you may have while providing details regarding the adolescent programming we offer.
During this initial conversation, our team will schedule a time for your child or loved one to receive an in-depth evaluation. This assessment can help our staff learn more about the young person’s presenting symptoms, mental health history, and past substance use, as well as other relevant details.
We’ll use the information we glean from this evaluation to determine whether our services are a good fit for the potential client. If we believe that they can benefit from our services, our team will work with you to complete any remaining paperwork before scheduling the adolescent’s date of admission for treatment.
Typically, our clients are referred to us by professional referral sources. If the young person is being referred to us by their care provider, we’ll work directly with their provider to begin the admissions process.
