ABOUT ACADIANA ADDICTION CENTER

Acadiana Addiction Center, based in Lafayette, La., offers residential, outpatient, and detoxification programs for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon entry clients undergo an assessment that is used to develop an individualized treatment plan. Acadiana prides itself on a holistic treatment approach, designed to treat mind, body, and spirit. Individual counselors are assigned to clients.

The residential treatment program incorporates 12-step meetings, individual and group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and other evidence-based practices. Treatment typically lasts 30 to 90 days but varies depending on the individual’s needs.

Clients have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities including yoga, acupuncture, Pilates, and Tai Chi.

Educational programs include relapse prevention, self-esteem enhancement, effective communication, and other topics. Specialized groups cover anger management and coping skills. The facility encourages loved ones to be involved in weekly educational programs.

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets for a minimum of ten hours per week and typically last for eight weeks. IOP focuses on 12-step meetings.

Following the completion of treatment Acadiana works with clients on continuing care plans to determine the next step of treatment and create a discharge plan.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The two alumni responding polled by Best-rehabs.com gave positive reviews. Four- and five- out of five-star ratings were left for the staff’s level of training and experience, treatment effectiveness, affordability, and cleanliness. Both alumni said they would recommend the facility to others. “This is where I got my life back,” wrote alum Robert, adding: “Taught me how to live life like an adult with life on life terms.”

Despite praised for numerous metrics, both alumni rated the facility’s holistic offerings and exercise and leisure options poorly, not giving either metric a rating above three stars. “The staff and food are great,” an anonymous alum wrote, but said that the facility needed, “more options for things to do and a little more freedom with the choices.”

  • Stability accountability fortitude the 12 steps; Family oriented spiritual commitment were strengths. Could be more updated. Sometimes personal views cloud the professional duties. This is where I got my life back. Taught me how to live life like an adult with life on life terms. On a personal note, two weeks after I entered the facility another addict came in too. We bonded really well. We started to be able to have a true friend to lean on. We went thru everything together. Trying to get our lives back in order. We spent 13 months at the facility working with each other and supporting each other. We were able to help each other dig deep into the program and get all the spirituality we could. We went they the highs and the lows of rehab life daily. We saw many clients come and go but kept pushing each other to finish the program no matter how many times we were fed up and wanted to leave. The facility taught us how to love ourselves and prepare ourselves to love others when we graduated. A year and a month I finally graduated and a month later my friend followed. We learned so much from each other and what the true meaning of friendship and support really is. We now run 3 different meetings at our rehab facility and continue to help other addicts in their journey. Learn to love yourself and then find someone to share that spiritual love and care with. We are a very special exception that actually worked for us. If it wasn't for us both going to the exact same time and at the exact same place, we never would have met. I believe that our higher powers had a hand in all of this. I thank him everyday for giving me the strength to change my life for the better and being able to share this gift of recovery with my husband and other addicts alike. Thank you.

  • The facility was very well maintained and had a very professional appearance. Treatment was religiously-based and likely would not appeal to non-religious attendants. This facility was very expensive and unfortunately did not work for my father. It may, however, work for a patient that is more religiously-driven and willing to accept care.
