The path to recovery begins at The Grove.

Our 3-phase approach to treating substance abuse in an outpatient setting addresses the individual needs of each of our clients. We apply the 12-step philosophy to all aspects of life to empower our patients to successfully achieve and maintain long-term recovery. Upon admission to The Grove, each client undergoes a comprehensive evaluation, as well as treatment planning that is personalized and updated throughout the treatment stay. Because we don’t take a “cookie cutter” approach to treatment, our 3-phase program may last from 90 days to year depending on the needs and progress of each client.

The Grove is a dual-diagnosed (co-occurring disorder) intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment facility with sober living recovery homes for both men and women. We are a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers and were recognized as LASACT’s 2017 Louisiana Addiction Service Provider of the Year. The Grove is also CARF accredited which meets their standards of excellence. The Grove incorporates the Recovery Dynamics curriculum to educate our clients on the 12-steps and guide them to understand and comprehend its true purpose.

Recovery starts here.

From our CEO to past patients who joined our staff, we know the struggles of addiction firsthand. Read our stories, or contact our admissions team to begin your journey now.

Group Therapy

Psychoeducational Group Therapy

Understanding the problem is easy, but finding the solution is not. These group therapy sessions will help patients understand the disease of addiction and begin to identify solutions to various issues within their personal lives. Education is presented by a licensed addiction counselor in a small group setting and varies from lecture-based sessions to interactive discussions among the group and counselor.

Topics that a client may discuss include: “The Disease Concept,” “Powerlessness,” “Unmanageability,” “Bridge to Amends,” “A Daily Reprieve,” “Sober Life,” and more. A full list of topics will be available upon admission. Additionally, our counselors will guide patients through each of the 12 steps to ensure an understanding of how each step is applicable to their addiction and their lives.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Group

The Grove incorporates this widely used evidence-based style of therapy built on the idea that negative behaviors are learned and reinforced over time. Daily CBT groups are at the core of the treatment process, and we believe, are critical to the overall recovery of each patient in our program.

To change behaviors, patients must work to modify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to substance use. One example of such a thought is “I’m a bad person; I don’t deserve to be sober.” By modifying damaging throught and beliefs, the individual can accomplish the changes needed to sustain recovery.

Daily therapy includes specialty and peer groups that are psycho-educational and/or psycho-dynamic and cover topics such as “Substance Abuse,” “Introduction to the 12-Step Program,” “Grief and Loss,” “Sexuality,” “Trauma Survival,” “Self-esteem,” “Family Patterns,” “Assertiveness,” and “Interpersonal Relationships.”

Education & Aftercare Services

Education sessions are offered daily, and aftercare is at 5:00pm every Sunday at First Christian Church, 8484 Old Hammond Hwy., Baton Rouge.

Education is conducted every day for our Phase I patients.  These sessions are a critical component to any longevity of recovery.  During these sessions we will utilize the Recovery Dynamics curriculum, breaking down the 12 step approach to recovery.  Each step is designed to change the thought process, and help guide someone through the stages of recovery.  The approaches taken in these sessions will allow patients to elaborate on their own unique situations, as well as give them the direction on how to process and cope with different aspects of their recovery.


Life Skills Sessions

Life Skills sessions are also a part of the daily routine.  These skills are discussed to help with the transitional process of treatment.  The discussions can vary from budgeting to self-worth.  During this portion of education, patients are pushed to think outside the box.  Many self-examining exercises will be done to allow the patient to see their top potential, and to know their worth as they continue on the road to recovery.
