The Best Care

For a family making their choice from a bewildering variety of different programs and different promises, an education in what to look for in a program can save both money and heartbreak. Edgefield Recovery Center believes in treating clients with dignity and respect while engaging them in their treatment process. During the treatment of their addiction and/or mental health we will teach the tools necessary for a long and lasting life free from addiction. 

One way we are able to show our respect for the clients we serve is to provide a place that is comfortable and serene. Edgefield is nestled on twenty-seven acres of large oak trees and a pecan orchard in southern Louisiana. The atmosphere is one that promotes a consciousness with a higher power allowing the client to begin the road to spiritual development.

With our team of licensed clinicians, an addictionologist, a psych nurse practitioner, family nurse practitioner, staff nurses and a physical trainer, our program meets the individual needs of each of our clients. We believe the longer a person stays engaged in the treatment process the greater chance for success in a lasting life free from drugs and alcohol.
