Since Townsend’s conception, Dr. Howard Wetsman has not swayed from his vision of revolutionizing addiction treatment. His ideas and methods are put into practice at Townsend’s seven outpatient and one inpatient addiction treatment centers across Louisiana. Dr. Wetsman is Board Certified in Addiction Medicine and is a Regional Director and Board Member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

Dr. Wetsman pioneered the use of genetic testing and proprietary medical monitoring to collect patient-specific data. Townsend uses his groundbreaking innovations to address and stabilize addiction and related complications before offering a unique long-term plan to keep addiction in remission.

Townsend is a leader in addiction treatment and the only provider to use proprietary neurocognitive and genetic testing, along with traditional methods, to determine more accurately the state of a patient’s primary illness of addiction.

Combining vision, technology, and a revolutionary treatment platform, Townsend helps patients feel better fast the first time they seek help.
