Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


A service of the State of Louisiana’s Office of Behavioral Health, the Dr. Joseph Henry Tyler Jr. Behavioral Health Center (TMHC) provides outpatient-based services and a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for adults and youths struggling with psychiatric disorders, as well as individuals struggling with substance abuse issues and co-occurring disorders. Located in Lafayette, La., the state-funded facility does not provide on-site detoxification; however, clinicians may provide referrals to an appropriate inpatient facility for clients who require crisis intervention or detoxification services.


To help clinicians form an individualized plan of care, clients first participate in an initial psychosocial assessment and psychiatric evaluation. If a client requires a structured, supervised environment to obtain stability, they may be referred to the facility’s partial hospitalization program (PHP). PHP provides similar structured programming as an inpatient facility, however, clients return home each night after a full day of treatment. TMHC serves the parishes of Lafayette, upper Saint Martin, and eastern Vermilion.

During PHP, clients may participate in individual, group, and family counseling sessions that address specific issues relevant to the clientele. For example, the center may facilitate specialized counseling sessions on trauma for individuals struggling with a primary psychiatric disorder, while individuals struggling with co-occurring substance abuse difficulties may attend addiction-focused counseling groups on relapse prevention, trigger avoidance, and developing community-based support networks. TMHC may also provide educational classes and workshops on improving coping skills, regulating emotions, and practicing self-awareness.

Along with counseling sessions and educational classes, TMHC also provides ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management to alleviate the symptoms of specific mental health disorders. Once a client indicates stability in PHP, clinicians may recommend that the client “step-down” to a less-intensive level of care. TMHC offers both an intensive outpatient program, with over nine hours of weekly programming, and a less-intensive traditional outpatient program.


According to the Office of Behavioral Health’s website, all treatment programs “utilize the unique skills of professionals with appropriate competencies, credentials and certifications.” The professionals may include psychiatrists, licensed substance abuse and mental health counselors, child psychologists, and case managers.


Although Rehabs.com has yet to receive alumni feedback to date, secondary reviews sites revealed mostly positive alumni opinions. On Facebook, TMHC received an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars across six reviews to date: five maximum five-star ratings and a single two-star rating.[1]


The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing praised most areas of the facility. The survey respondent gave perfect five-star ratings for the treatment staff’s level of experience and training and the facility’s ability to treat co-occurring disorders. Offering a four-star rating for the facility’s counseling options, the loved one wrote: “Great group therapy. Some consulors are recovering addicts.” The loved one also gave a four-star rating for the level of family participation in treatment.


The treatment center accepts both private insurance plans and Medicaid. The loved one polled by Rehabs.com reported that the facility was helpful in working with clients and families financially.

Great group therapy. Some consulors are recovering addicts. Easy to find location. Scheduling was poor. Easy to get in. Works with you financially. Time reserved for family members.
