Every year, millions of Americans struggle with substance use disorders. From alcoholism to heroin addiction to abusing prescription opioids, all of these people need evidence-based addiction treatment to begin long-term recovery. And at Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital, we strive to provide the treatment programs that will make real, lasting differences for these individuals.
But addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all. That is why, in order to maximize recovery and prevent relapse, we provide custom treatment options to ensure that our staff of mental health and addiction experts help each patient begin a new, alcohol- and drug-free lifestyle.

Just like no two addictions are the same, our substance abuse treatments offer a lot of variety in addiction treatment programming. While our residential treatment programs always offers recovery staples like cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, and family therapy, the specifics of your addiction treatment will depend largely on your personal preferences and needs.
At Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital, our Louisiana treatment center offers three primary treatment options to treat substance use disorders. Read on to learn about each unique program and how they can help you recover from drug and alcohol addictions.
While alcohol is seen as a “safer” substance, the reality is that it’s highly addictive. For people who have used alcohol heavily for prolonged periods of time, quitting can even be dangerous. For that reason, we offer an inpatient, medical alcohol detox that will lessen the short-term effects of alcohol withdrawal and prepare you for long-term addiction treatment.
If you have struggled with substance abuse, then you know that addiction affects every aspect of your life. In detox, we focus on restoring your physical health with a combination of 24/7 monitoring from our medical staff, accommodations to keep you comfortable and safe during detox, and medication assisted treatment to protect you from dangerous alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Many people try at-home detox, but ultimately, nothing is safer than inpatient drug detox. Our drug detoxification program will help you recovery from heroin, benzodiazepine, and opioid addiction, and it will do so with a combination of 24/7 medical supervision and medication assisted treatment.
For example, if you are suffering from opioid withdrawals, one of our physicians may prescribe Suboxone to help ease the withdrawal symptoms. Additional medications may be prescribed on a case-by-case basis to manage withdrawal symptoms, but know that our doctors write prescriptions only after thoughtful review of the patient’s withdrawal symptoms, their safety, and their recovery goals.
In our dual diagnosis program, our staff will help you recover from addiction and mental health conditions. Available as inpatient treatment or as a partial hospitalization program, this option was designed as a step-down from detox to help patients work on the underlying issues that lead to addiction.
With several types of therapy to meet every patient’s needs, this program focuses on treating addiction and mental illness as co-occurring disorders, wherein one cannot be treated without also treating the other. In this way, our team of addiction specialists and psychiatric staff will help you get to the root of your struggles and find impactful, lasting solutions.
No matter what kind of addiction treatment you need, we will do everything in our power to meet your needs.
