    Help Getting Treated

    Addiction Center

    Drug trafficking and homegrown operations contribute to the availability of many types of drugs within the state, including methamphetamine and heroin. Because of Louisiana's diversified drug landscape, Louisiana has become a melting pot for many types of substance abuse disorders.

    Mesothelioma Center ‚Äč

    Veterans comprise more than 30 percent of all mesothelioma cases in the United States. Because all branches of the military relied on asbestos in the past, and builders overseas still do, veterans are more likely than others to develop asbestos-related diseases. This center offers free VA Claims assistance to veterans exposed to asbestos. Veterans can access a monthly online support group where a variety of topics pertaining to cancer patients are discussed.  An on-staff doctor and nurse are available to answer any medical-related questions.  Veterans can also access Patient Advocates that work 1-on-1 with individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups.
