At NOLA Detox, Co-Founders Dan Forman and Chris Copeland are determined to show that addiction is highly treatable, and that New Orleans is a great place to be sober. Both in long-term recovery, Dan and Chris have made it their mission to provide New Orleans and the Gulf South with a quality treatment option that incorporates hospitality, kindness, compassion, and next-level comfort for those struggling with substance use disorders.

“Louisiana is at the center of the national opioid epidemic—NOLA Detox was created in response to this crisis as a local solution for anyone needing help to recover from addiction,” says Forman. “Through our medical partnership with the LSU Health Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship, paired with extremely low patient to counselor ratios, we are able to provide unparalleled clinical care that creates the foundation for a lifetime of recovery.”

NOLA Detox is the largest private addiction treatment program in New Orleans. Its unique approach of combining top-notch clinical and psychiatric care with New Orleans-style hospitality distinguishes this comprehensive program from others. NOLA Detox offers inpatient detoxification, extended residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, medication management services, and sober living.

Guests can expect real comfort at NOLA Detox, which is located on a secluded eight-acre campus in Algiers. Residential suites include hotel-style, queen-sized, pillow-top mattresses and 40” televisions. Amenities like nightly fresh-baked cookies, curated restaurant menus by Copeland’s Restaurant, and special events like crawfish boils and food truck parties add to its appeal. Next month, NOLA Detox will host an alumni appreciation festival with hundreds expected to attend.

Forman and Copeland never want finances to be a barrier to recovery and encourage those in need to call or text for more information. NOLA Detox is a preferred in-network provider with most insurance plans.

“By providing a little bit of lagniappe, we keep our patients in treatment longer, which then improves outcomes,” says Copeland. “Our doors are open to everyone. We want everyone to know there’s hope, and it is possible to enjoy life again in recovery.”  //  504-446-1111
