History of Acadiana Recovery Center
Acadiana Recovery Center opened in March of 1999 with a goal of providing addiction treatment services to those with little or no resources. Operations at Acadiana Recovery Center are funded through block grant funds administered by the Acadiana Area Human Services District. The vision was to have a centrally located residential treatment facility that served the people of Acadiana. Individuals living in Acadiana suffering from the disease of addiction had few treatment options nearby and often delayed treatment due to the nearest treatment facilities being located in Lake Charles or Morgan City. Acadiana Recovery Center was seen as s a treatment facility for people within Acadiana Area Human Services District, thus approximately 85-90 percent of all admissions into the residential unit were people from within this eight parish area.
Our Treatment Programs
The Treatment Programs department provides hope and healing for individuals, families, and communities endeavoring to recover from alcoholism and drug addiction as well as mental health issues.
We offer integrated residential/inpatient alcohol and drug dependency and mental health treatment to adult men and women. We also provide a six-month halfway house (REHAB), outpatient alcohol and drug dependency treatment and aftercare. We also provide outpatient children and adolescent alcohol and drug dependency and mental health treatment through our Milestones and Functional Family Therapy Programs.
The Center operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We serve the Acadiana Area Human Services District which covers Lafayette and seven surrounding parishes.

The mission of the Treatment Programs department is to provide assessment and intervention to the addiction population as well as the general public family.
