Townsend, owned and operated by Avenues Recovery Centers, has eight addiction facilities located across South Louisiana. Townsend offers a spectrum of innovative rehabilitation services based on the needs of each patient. Patients are treated with encouragement and respect by blending high quality addiction therapy with compassionate counseling in a safe recovery environment. The core philosophy at Townsend is that addiction is a chronic brain disease that can be managed or put in “remission.” Using The Townsend Way their team strives to help both patients and loved ones heal from their addictions and enjoy an improved quality of life. Once the patient’s acute medical condition has stabilized, The Townsend Way offers a unique, effective, and long-term plan to keep his or her addiction in remission. Townsend treatment offers an intensive outpatient therapy (IOP) phase which varies in length according to the patient’s needs. After completing this IOP phase, Townsend provides former patients with continuing care via enrollment in their optional chronic disease management plan to keep their disease in remission.

Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    I loved the group meeting/counciling. I disliked my doctor almost from day one. She rushed through appointments. She would ask questions and while I was talking to she would be typing on the computer, slower than what how fast I was talking. I believe she was actually messaging the midline woman. So she would try to repeat what she thought she heard from me and 75% of the time she would get it wrong and insist that she was right. I am nearly 30 years old, I do not need to be treated like a child. Through the program I would consider myself a A+ plus student, no relapses and no missed meetings. My insurance actually cut the program short because I was doing to we\'ll. I can\'t say enough about how I much I loved my counselors and overall the whole staff. Stay away from the doctor, she is a train wreck. I made freinds with some of my group members, who have different doctors, and they don\'t get hassled nearly as much as I did. I couldn\'the have a conversation with the repulsive woman, stay away from her.
