Behavior Health Services for Youth, Adults, Families and Communities

Building better communities, one person at a time, is not just a slogan, but the guiding principle at Options for Independence. Our goal is to help people live and work in the community of their choice. We are proud to offer a wide array of behavior health services for youth, adults, families and communities. Options for Independence is a nationally recognized provider of Multisystemic Therapy (MST) and Functional Family Therapy (FFT). These programs focus on at-risk youth specifically by working intensively in the family, home and community setting. In addition, Options for Independence offers mental health counseling, community psychiatric support and treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation for both youth and adults with a mental illness. Recently, we have reinstated the youth intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program as well as developed an adult intensive outpatient program to provide substance abuse treatment for both youth and adults struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction. We also offer individual substance abuse counseling, weekly outpatient group therapy, as well as SAP-DOT (substance abuse professional) assessments. Our focus is on the individual and creating unique person-centered plans that incorporate the individual’s strengths, needs and abilities to develop attainable goals important to that Participant. We invite you to learn how our focus on each individual is making a difference everywhere we work.

Options for Independence is proud to have CARF accreditation and to be an active service provider for Magellan of Louisiana. The organization has a license for substance abuse treatment services through the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals.
