Louisiana Behavioral Health

At Louisiana Behavioral Health, we provide treatment designed to meet each patient’s unique needs. We understand the specialized nature of providing mental health services for people of different age groups and with different behavioral challenges.
Our inpatient care services provide concentrated, evidence-based treatment to help individuals achieve stability and transition to a lower level of care.

Group therapy sessions are conducted separately so adults and seniors receive the care best suited to their needs.
To provide the greatest level of service to our community, we address a range of behavior health issues and diagnoses. We understand that patients may face multiple conditions at once, which is why we are also offer specialized treatment for those experiencing the mental and emotional side effects of substance use disorder.
