Designed For You.

The path to recovery begins at The Grove.

Our 3-phase approach to treating substance abuse and trauma addresses the individual needs of each of our patients. We apply the 12-step philosophy to all aspects of life to empower our patients to successfully achieve and maintain long-term recovery. Upon admission to The Grove, each client undergoes a comprehensive evaluation as well as treatment planning that is personalized and updated throughout the treatment stay. Because we don’t take a “cookie cutter” approach to treatment, our 3-phase program may last from nine to 12 months depending on the needs and progress of each patient.

The Grove is a dual-diagnosed (co-occurring disorder) treatment facility with residential homes for both men and women. We are a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers and were recognized as LASACT’s 2017 Louisiana Addiction Service Provider of the Year.

    Getting a Grasp On SobrietyTrust • accountability • respect • honesty

    Recovery begins in Phase 1, a PHP program that exceeds all standards of care for substance abuse treatment. We ensure patients are stabilized physically and emotionally, and we help them heal with trust, accountability, respect, and honesty. With daily complementary therapies and education, 24-hour supervision, and a staff-to-patient ratio that is among the smallest in any treatment program, we empower Phase 1 patients to achieve recovery from substance abuse and start identifying strength-based characteristics for a future filled with vision and purpose.

    Phase 2

    Finding Your Sober Futuremomentum • focus • strength • opportunity

    Phase 2 builds on the momentum gained in Phase 1 to help patients find their life path through recovery. Treatment continues at an IOP level of care with 24-hour supervision at their residence, four to five AA/NA meetings weekly, three days per week of group therapy, and twice monthly individual therapy. Patients continue weekly LIfe Skills courses, where they define and focus on their own valuable strengths and begin to apply those strengths through work, volunteer opportunities, or education. Our approach has a tremendous success rate because our clients take control of their lives, their recovery, and their actions.

    Phase 3 focuses each patient’s attention on the daily work needed to maintain his or her recovery, with an emphasis on consistency and purpose. Treatment is reduced to outpatient and group therapy sessions, but patients work more intimately with our life coaches to develop a personal mission and goals list.

Carren's Story

Recovery starts here.

From our CEO to past patients who joined our staff, we know the struggles of addiction firsthand. Read our stories, or contact our admissions team to begin your journey now.

Family Involvement

Education to help families support their loved ones through recovery.

Family involvement is extremely important to the recovery process. Since addiction is labeled as a family disease, wherein all members of the family are affected by the addictive behaviors of their loved ones, The Grove places an emphasis on incorporating family members into the recovery and healing process. Family members must educate themselves on the disease of addiction and alcoholism so that they can provide a healthy support system for their loved one.

The Grove offers many opportunities for family involvement throughout the treatment of their loved ones. Family members are contacted by a clinician once the patient is evaluated and placed in the proper level of care. Then again, the family will be contacted by the assigned individual counselor to answer any questions pertaining to their loved one’s treatment, as well as given regular updates on his or her status. Family counselling sessions are offered to the family so that they can be involved in the recovery process with their loved one too. Finally, family members are encouraged to participate in our monthly Family Day, where they will be educated on the effects of addiction on their family relationships. Family members are taught about boundaries and enabling. Family members who continue to enable their loved ones are continually hurting and prolonging the addiction. The recovery process is hindered if the family does not set boundaries with the loved one.

Group Therapy

Psychoeducational Group Therapy

Understanding the problem is easy, but finding the solution is not. These group therapy sessions will help patients understand the disease of addiction and begin to identify solutions to various issues within their personal lives. Education is presented by a licensed addiction counselor in a small group setting and varies from lecture-based sessions to interactive discussions among the group and counselor.

Topics that a client may discuss include: “The Disease Concept,” “Powerlessness,” “Unmanageability,” “Bridge to Amends,” “A Daily Reprieve,” “Sober Life,” and more. A full list of topics will be available upon admission. Additionally, our counselors will guide patients through each of the 12 steps to ensure an understanding of how each step is applicable to their addiction and their lives.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Group

The Grove incorporates this widely used evidence-based style of therapy built on the idea that negative behaviors are learned and reinforced over time. Daily CBT groups are at the core of the treatment process, and we believe, are critical to the overall recovery of each patient in our program.

To change behaviors, patients must work to modify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to substance use. One example of such a thought is “I’m a bad person; I don’t deserve to be sober.” By modifying damaging throught and beliefs, the individual can accomplish the changes needed to sustain recovery.

Daily therapy includes specialty and peer groups that are psycho-educational and/or psycho-dynamic and cover topics such as “Substance Abuse,” “Introduction to the 12-Step Program,” “Grief and Loss,” “Sexuality,” “Trauma Survival,” “Self-esteem,” “Family Patterns,” “Assertiveness,” and “Interpersonal Relationships.”

Education & Aftercare Services

Education sessions are offered daily, and aftercare is at 5:30pm every Sunday at our Perkins House.

Education is conducted every day for our Phase I patients.  These sessions are a critical component to any longevity of recovery.  During these sessions we will discuss the dynamics of addiction, the disease itself and how it takes over the brain.  We will also discuss and break down the 12-step approach.  Each step is designed to change the thought process, and help guide someone through the stages of recovery.  The approaches taken in these sessions will allow patients to elaborate on their own unique situations, as well as give them the direction on how to process and cope with different aspects of their recovery.


Life Skills Sessions

Life Skills sessions are also a part of the daily routine.  These skills are discussed to help with the transitional process of treatment.  The discussions can vary from budgeting to self-worth.  During this portion of education, patients are pushed to think outside the box.  Many self-examining exercises will be done to allow the patient to see their top potential, and to know their worth as they continue on the road to recovery.
