ABOUT OUR LADY OF THE LAKE
Our Lady of the Lake, a hospital in Baton Rouge, La., offers a range of treatment programs for adults, adolescents, and seniors struggling with psychiatric disorders, chemical dependency, or co-occurring issues. Levels of treatment include age-specific residential programs, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and specialized intensive outpatient (IOP) programs. Additionally, the hospital’s Family Center provides outpatient services for adolescents. If necessary, the hospital also facilitates detoxification through its Tau Medical Detox Unit.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, upon admission, clients participate in an initial evaluation to assess the contributing factors leading to hospitalization. The goal of the short-term programs is to stabilize the individual and refer clients to less-intensive levels of treatment. The average length of detoxification or residential treatment in the Tau Medical Detox Unit is between three and five days.
During residential treatment, clients participate in individual and group counseling sessions. Treatment programming for chemical dependency also incorporates 12-step principles.
Along with treatment for substance use disorders, Our Lady of the Lake treats individuals struggling with grief, anxiety, depression, anger, panic attacks, and other psychiatric and emotional issues. Clients with a psychiatric disorder or a dual diagnosis may receive ongoing medication management. Family involvement during treatment is highly encouraged.
Once a client is stabilized, adults may be referred to the IOP, which includes programming Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 11 a.m., or to a specialized adult outpatient program. Sessions on substance use disorders are held three times per week from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., while outpatient sessions for primary psychiatric disorders are held on weekday mornings.
Our Lady of the Lake employs a multidisciplinary team of board-certified psychiatrists, mental health and substance abuse counselors, child and adolescent psychologists, licensed social workers, registered nurses, nutritionists, physical therapists, spirituality counselors, and activity counselors, according to the center’s website.

Like alumni, the other reviewers highlighted the staff. “They help you find the root of your problem and teaches you how to deal with it,” they wrote.
“Excellent doctors and nurses who really care for the patients,” another loved one wrote.
