All of our behavioral health clinics are accredited by CARF International,  a Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Our Developmental Disabilities Division is committed to ensuring quality services, serving as the Single Point of Entry (SPOE) into the developmental disabilities services system.  As the SPOE, our staff will work with individuals and families who are seeking developmental disability supports and services through the Louisiana Department of Health.  It is our intention to make the application process friendly, informative, and focused on meeting your needs.
