American Addiction Centers National Rehabs Directory

Addiction Recovery Resources, Inc.

4933 Wabash Street, Suite 203, Metairie, Louisiana, 70001
Addiction Recovery Resources believes that true recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction is only possible when an individual is given the opportunity to reintegrate into his or her community environment. The Louisiana-based residential rehab allows its clients to do just that by offering a network of positive support, in addition to a continuum of care designed to meet the needs of patients at every stage of the disease. Family participation is also essential to recovery, and the wellness of the non-addicted family members is the goal of family participation. AAR believes that recovery is possible for all addicts and alcoholics, as well as the people who love them.

Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Intensive Out Patient (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.

Was a Great part of me being clean. And I was happy for once in my life taking care of myself and spending time with my grandchildren.but Thursday I got a call from ARR telling me that I won't be seen February 7,2018.because I don't fit their criteria.i don't understand I been clean going to meetings 4 times a week.why?. I'm depressed crying confused. They didn't explain to me why I can't get Suboxone treatment at there. I'm suppose to get my Suboxone sent by them to the pharmacy for March and I was told that I would get a call with referrals to other doctors that may be able to write Suboxone perscriptions. i'm scared and I feel they don't care if I relapse or overdose or kill myself they don't care.because it ain't their family.period. I been clean over 5 yrs but I'm not ready to be off the program yet. I shot up 31 yrs. Was in and out of prison.i feel abandoned they just said I didn't fit their criteria.but they wouldn't let me be without my Suboxone I suppose to get in a few days.And I would get a phone call from them with referrals for other doctors.i need help I have 4 days of Suboxone left then I'll be out.please send my perscription to broad Ave pharmacy.And give me a call with referrals.because I have bipolar among other health problems and I don't want to lose control.i come to far now. But I don't know what to do now.help me ARR doctors and nurses .

This place literally saved my daughter's life. She went to 3 rehabs before this place but this one is the one that worked for her. I wasn't to sure about it because it was an outpatient program. But I'm for ever thankful to you guys.
