Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows clients to live at home and work while being supported and treated for substance use and co-occuring disorders. The program meets 3-days a week for group therapy with one of the groups being a family session with a licensed marriage and family therapist. Individual counseling occurs weekly in conjunction with physician visits. Longbranch Wellness utilizes medication assisted treatment, intensive therapy, and robust aftercare planning in a comfortable environment to inspire clients to recover.
The Pathways Program at Longbranch Wellness is an adolescent outpatient program that provides group therapy and counseling for teenagers who are at risk for developing or are currently experiencing substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Our goal is to help teenagers embrace a healthy lifestyle while treating the underlying issues contributing to their drug and alcohol use while supporting the entire family through the process. Pathways meets twice a week at Longbranch Wellness in Old Metairie, LA with a focus on the unique issues and concerns of teenagers.
Longbranch Recovery Center is proud to partner with Tulane’s School of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences to provide unparalleled patient care for our residential clients. Tulane was awarded fellowships in addiction medicine and has chosen Longbranch Recovery Center as a site to train their fellows under the guidance of their Director of the Addiction Medicine Fellowship program.
