Drug & Alcohol Addiction Rehab, Treatment & Recovery Resources in Louisiana

"Approximately 576,000 Louisianans – 12.35% of the state population – use illegal drugs and another 236,000 – 5.06% of the state population – abuse alcohol in a given year. As a consequence, nearly 10.83% of all deaths in Louisiana between 2008 and 2017 were caused by drugs and alcohol, almost two percentage points above the national average for drug- and alcohol-induced deaths. Among the five most populous cities in Louisiana based on population, Shreveport had the highest rate of drug- and alcohol-related deaths during that time period at 14.24%, while Baton Rouge had the lowest rate at 7.57%.

This guide was created to help the many residents of Louisiana who are struggling with substance abuse addiction to find affordable treatment that will put them on the path to recovery. It is also intended to inform the general public about the dangers of substance abuse in Louisiana.

If you need help finding a rehabilitation center in Louisiana, you can use our directory to locate low-cost, quality treatment right away. Read on to find instructions for using the directory and to learn which rehabilitation centers qualify as the highest-rated, low-cost facilities in the state." -from Help.org

Building Recovery of Individual Dreams & Goals through Education and Support (BRIDGES) is a consumer-run peer education and support program for consumers of mental health services. Using the base philosophy of empowerment and self direction, the program enables consumers to learn about themselves, their mental health issues, mental health coping skills and the direction and value of their lives.

The 10-week BRIDGES educational course is designed for learning the facts on mental health. BRIDGES support group meetings offer opportunities for consumers to learn and apply coping skills to their individual challenges. The classes and support groups are taught and facilitated by trained mental health consumers. This program operates statewide and is funded by the Louisiana Office of Behavioral Health.

The BRIDGES program is based on the belief that individuals with mental health issues can recover by accepting the challenges of living with conditions that have affected every aspect of their lives.

Consumers may choose where they want to begin their recovery journey – in an education course or in a support group. The only requirement to participate in BRIDGES is a desire to pursue one’s recovery.

All BRIDGES courses and support groups are free of charge and offered to anyone with a mental health diagnosis.

Operation Bootstrap
Operation Bootstrap is The Salvation Army of Baton Rouge’s alcohol and drug rehabilitation program designed to help men of all ages overcome their addictions.

By providing counseling, medical assistance, food, shelter, and most importantly, spiritual guidance, the program successfully helps men rebuild their lives.

Designed in conjunction with The Salvation Army’s Family Thrift Store as a work therapy program, Operation Bootstrap helps men overcome the addiction as well as the major cause of homelessness.                                                                                           Next Step Transitional Housing
The lack of affordable housing and sufficient support structure makes life difficult for individuals moving from rehabilitation back into life on their own.
