The Acadiana Recovery Center is a residential treatment program for adult men and women who suffer from chemical dependence. It is licensed under the Department of Health and Hospitals and CARF accredited.

Customary referral procedure for admission is facilitated through assessments done by outpatient clinics, hospitals, and detox facilities. Approximately 85-90 percent of admissions are people from within the city of Lafayette and outlying eight parish area.

  • Managed care requires that basic admission criteria be met: candidates 18 years or older (males and females); have a primary diagnosis of alcohol and/or drug addiction, as set in the DSM-5; and meet a six dimension assessment appropriate to residential (3.5) level of care treatment.
  • In this, as in all programs, Acadiana Recovery Center staff meets and exceeds the highest standards of their respective professional disciplines and offers sensitive, insightful and constructive treatment for the chemically dependent client.

Individuals participating in the residential treatment program receive, individual, psychotherapy group, gender-specific group and family counseling. In addition, didactic sessions, spirituality groups, job readiness, and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) and Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) meetings are integral parts of the program. Our clinical staff also uses Recovery Dynamics and the Living in Balance series by Hazelden as part of the treatment process.

Recovery Dynamics

The Recovery Dynamics treatment curriculum teaches the twelve-step recovery program clearly and comprehensively. Recovery Dynamics curriculum orients clients toward twelve-step support groups through substance abuse education and intensive individual and group counseling. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques are used to help achieve a change in attitude and behavior. This has been one of the most successful programs in the United States, and through it, we have seen tens of thousands liberated from addiction.

The Recovery Dynamics treatment curriculum is designed to help the client work the steps, to get beneath the surface in the context of individual and group counseling, and to restructure the way their brain processes the world – the way they handle emotions, decisions, relationships, etc.

As part of the treatment curriculum, patients are given daily assignments to complete during personal study time that integrates with the rest of Acadiana Recovery Center treatment programming. Other aspects of the treatment curriculum are done in group settings or in one-on-one counseling sessions with their personal counselor.
