Operating out of Alexandria, Louisiana Longleaf Hospital has been open for over 10 years. It offers an inpatient substance abuse treatment program which follows the 12-step approach with special services to support co-occurring mental health disorders.
As a member of the Acadia Healthcare network, Longleaf Hospital is just one of many behavioral health facilities providing chemical dependency and therapeutic support. With its headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee, Acadia serves communities across the country and in the UK with inpatient, residential, outpatient and school-based treatment programs.
Accommodations and Food
Treatment at Longleaf takes place in a clinical hospital setting, where clients are accommodated in a lock-down unit. All residents share double-occupancy rooms with one other client. While the Longleaf treatment program is co-ed, rooms are gender-specific. All meals are provided and served by the hospital to clients in their rooms while group dinners are served family-style on weekends.
Treatment and Staff
Longleaf Hospital’s inpatient program typically lasts 30 days and all clients work an individualized treatment plan. Following a comprehensive intake evaluation, clients enter an intensive program of day-long group therapy Monday to Friday, which incorporate the 12 steps and CBT. Clients also attend weekly individual sessions, unless it is determined that they may benefit from more frequent sessions.
Longleaf also offers dual diagnosis support, and clients see a medical doctor daily. Residents are given free time on weekends for relaxation, doing homework or taking part in community activities, such as attending area AA/NA meetings.
Longleaf employs a Substance Abuse Counselor (SAC), CSW, a medical doctor and a psychiatrist, as well as registered nurses. The Longleaf substance abuse unit is monitored by staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
After completing inpatient treatment and returning home, Longleaf clients may step down to an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or basic outpatient treatment and continue attending sessions at a lower frequency, if they and the staff deem it necessary.
For those seeking a solid inpatient facility that provides security and comprehensive support through all phases of recovery, Longleaf is a good choice. By combining the 12-step framework and evidence-based methods of treatment, clients have access to standard treatment in a clinical setting. With support for co-occurring disorders and the opportunity to step down to less intensive tracks, Longleaf Hospital provides well-rounded care for substance abuse and mental health.
