Avenues Recovery Townsend Review
Avenues Recovery Center is a well known network of care centers, with six facilities across the US. The New Orleans facility, known as Townsend, offers detox, residential and extended care outpatient treatment. It’s for adults seeking help for alcoholism, drug abuse and co-occurring disorders. The detox and residential program bases treatment on the 12-step philosophy, and facilitates a variety of evidence-based and holistic treatment approaches.
Accommodations and Food
The inpatient facility includes both a detox and residential wing. It is on the fifth floor of the New Orleans East Hospital. The facility is fairly new, having just been built after Hurricane Katrina. There are 36 beds in total, situated in gender-specific bedrooms that are all semi-private. The clean and modern facility is spacious and offers several shared sections, including a lounge space and an on-site gym.
Clients dine in the cafeteria space where three, catered meals are served on a daily basis. Healthy snack and drink options are available during down times in between treatment hours as well.
Treatment and Staff
This branch of Avenues treatment facilities offers a 30 day inpatient track. Every client gets a primary therapist and an individualized program that includes at least three group sessions per day, and two individual sessions per week. Of the group therapy sessions, Avenues also offers gender-specific sessions three times per week.
Group therapy focuses on topics like relapse prevention, managing anger and improving communication skills. Other groups include art and music therapy, nutrition, social acceptance, life skills and money management. Along with attending daily AA, NA or CA meeting, therapeutic approaches include CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and trauma-informed care practices.
During detox, the Avenues team monitors clients 24 hours a day and provides medication that helps the withdrawal process. As medical stabilization is a primary focus at this facility, MAT is a staple of of the program using Vivitrol and Subutex. Dual diagnosis clients receive medication management in addition to their regular regimen of treatments.
During the residential phase of treatment clients go out on evening and weekend outings as a group. In addition, the facility provides transportation to local appointments and meetings if needed.
This brand new treatment facility in New Orleans provinces individualized care and supportive scheduled daily routines. Above all, this stage of treatment is regimented while still allowing clients to learn what it means to enjoy life in recovery. Between the accommodations and solid treatment program, clients emerge from this experience stronger and more capable than they were before they arrived.
