With 9 facilities located throughout South Louisiana, we offer treatment focusing on addiction as a brain disease.

Innovation in Treating Addiction

Not all addiction treatment professionals were satisfied with the approach being taken to treat addiction involving alcohol and other substances. Howard Wetsman, MD, is a New Orleans-based Psychiatrist and former Townsend Chief Medical Officer who developed a proprietary pharmacogenetic sequencing algorithm to increase scientific accuracy, provide better individualization, and yield better outcomes in addiction treatment. This method, or The Townsend Way of approaching the brain disease of addiction is different than other rehabilitation programs.

Residential and Outpatient Programs

Townsend Treatment Centers offer ideal residential and outpatient treatment to help stop the disease progression, get to the root of the addiction and stop the devastation caused by alcohol or drug use. Townsend Treatment Centers are members of the American Addiction Centers (AAC) family of rehab facilities and provide our addiction rehabilitation care for residents of South Louisiana.
