Avenues Recovery Metairie Louisiana Review
Avenues Recovery Center is a network of treatment facilities with several locations throughout the US. There are two facilities in Louisiana, one in New Orleans, and the other in Metairie. Treatment at this location includes a medical detox and residential care that is based on the 12 steps and evidence-based modalities. The main focus of the Metairie facility is taking clients through the initial steps of treatment, which generally includes stabilization so they can start establishing a steady life in recovery.
Accommodations and Food
The inpatient facilities consist of 10 luxury townhouses that were converted to accommodate up to 48 clients in the program. These town homes offer semi-private bedrooms, large living rooms, dining rooms and kitchen. While living on campus, clients have a sense of independence but still receive support from staff.
In addition to the standard residential facilities, there are also sober living apartments on the same campus. Both the residential and sober living homes are safe, private and have a bit of a rustic feel to them.
The meals are all catered into the this facility, and include gourmet selections twice a day.
Treatment and Staff
The initial assessment at the facility covers not only history of addiction and abuse, but also entails a psychological and psychiatric evaluation, the client’s full health history, and how adaptive he or she is socially.
After this first step, Avenues places the individual into a three to seven day medical detox. Following their stint in detox, clients transition into the residential phase of treatment. This level entails three group sessions per day. During the groups clients address their issues with anger management, receive medical and psychiatric care and take part in a comprehensive 12-step program.
The facility offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) options. They are in the form of Vivitrol and Subutex to manage cravings. In addition, clients with a dual diagnosis receive medication to help handle any mental illness symptoms they may exhibit for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and more.
Treatment protocols include CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). There are also AA meetings on site every evening.
Staff of the Metairie facility are MD, APRN, LCSW and LPC.
There is an alumni program at this location, and family and couples therapy,.
One of the most important things about the treatment at the Metairie facility is that clients are made to feel comfortable and safe the moment they step foot onto the campus. The facility is lovely, but more than that, the treatment team sheds light on the disease and educates residents, rather than trying to “set them straight.” Every step of the way they treat clients to the highest level of care in a warm, encouraging environment.
