Acadiana Addiction Center
156 Choctaw Rd, Sunset, Louisiana, 70584
Our philosophy identifies alcohol abuse and drug abuse as primary, chronic and progressive disorders. These disorders affect the ability to effectively cope with life. As a result, addicts begin a progressive deterioration in all major areas of their life. The addictive signs show up physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. This also begins an intensive erosion of family values and relationships. Through a multi-disciplinary approach and an active involvement of our patients' significant family members, the recovery process begins. This involvement includes active participation in weekly family care sessions and the three-day family workshop. Throughout the healing process, Acadiana Addiction Center also believes that early and continued involvement with 12 step self-help groups is crucial in the ongoing recovery of alcoholics/addicts and their families. Our patients are treated with dignity as they heal their lives - mind, body, and soul.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
