ABOUT TOWNSEND – NEW ORLEANS

Part of the Louisiana-based Townsend network, Townsend of New Orleans provides intensive outpatient treatment programs for men and women struggling with chemical dependency or other addictive issues, including sex addiction, overeating, and compulsive gambling. If necessary, the program provides outpatient-based, medical detoxification.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the center’s website, upon admission, clients meet with a clinician for a substance abuse assessment, who then develops an individualized plan of care. To accommodate client schedules, the New Orleans location holds sessions in the day and evening.

Townsend’s treatment approach is designed to address the neurobiological factors of addiction, namely the effect of substances or behaviors on the brain’s reward centers. And to investigate what may make a client more susceptible to addiction, the program offers genetic testing.

During treatment, clients participate in group counseling sessions and educational classes on substance abuse. Family participation throughout treatment is highly recommended, and the program holds a family night each week. If a client is recovering from opioids, Townsend has medication-assisted therapy (i.e. Suboxone and naltrexone) to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. The facility also offers ongoing, specialized support for clients with a chronic disease, according to the program’s website.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The center’s website states the staff members at the New Orleans facility include psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, and case managers. To facilitate genetic testing, the facility also employs phlebotomists.
