About Us

Located in Covington, Louisiana, Covington Behavioral Health is a licensed 104-bed treatment center specializing in providing compassionate, individualized care for adult individuals who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional and mental well-being. We offer a comprehensive suite of inpatient care with detox and intensive outpatient program services.

Individualized Treatment

At Covington, there is no such thing as “one size fits all” treatment. We recognize that each person who comes to us for healing brings a unique set of strengths, challenges, and treatment goals, so we are dedicated to providing the individualized care that gives each of our patients the best possible chance of healing.

We aim to be the premier provider of psychiatric services in the Gulf South region, and we strive to provide excellent care and commitment to our patients, staff, employees, physicians, families, and communities. We believe that all individuals have the right to top-notch physical and mental health care regardless of race, sex, creed, religion, age, gender, and sexual orientation.

Multidisciplinary Team

Covington employs a multidisciplinary team of professionals with diverse specialties who are all committed to providing the highest quality patient care. Our team includes psychiatrists, medical psychologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, counselors, activity therapists, and mental health technicians. We also have a full-time dietitian, social workers certified in gerontology, and physicians certified in forensic psychiatry and addictionology.

Disorders We Treat

Our team treats a range of disorders including:

  • Schizophrenia
  • Depressive disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Personality disorders

Detoxification Services

Although we are not a substance abuse treatment center, we have detoxification services available for individuals struggling with alcohol, illicit drug, and prescription opioid abuse, though we are not currently able to provide care for individuals struggling with heroin abuse. After detox is complete, individuals are expected to continue in our inpatient treatment program.

Intensive Outpatient Program

In addition to inpatient treatment, we also offer intensive outpatient (IOP) programs for individuals who would benefit from step-down care as they transition out of our inpatient program. Our IOP is designed to build upon the progress an individual has made while also supporting him or her as he or she transitions back into his or her community.

After trying other hospitals, I didn’t think there was hope for treatment. Thanks to Covington, I learned I could still have my life back and all I needed was the right program.
