The Journey Home, Denham Springs, LA
The Journey Home is a gender specific residential-only rehab for women.
The Journey Home Mission: It is the mission of The Journey Home to provide a safe and drug free environment, as well as to provide a highly trained professional staff to help and guide these worthwhile women on the path to a lifetime of recovery, returning to the community as productive members of society. It is also our mission to empower these young women so they can recover and break the generation to generation cycle of addiction, incest, child abuse, and emotional and physical violence and abuse.
Dual Diagnosis for Women
We are a dual diagnosis facility with neuro-psychological testing, psychiatric and medical services. The Journey Home provides specialized groups and individual counseling to help empower the resident to stabilize and function in today’s society. We believe that simultaneous treatment is necessary for the resident to recover from addiction with co-occurring disorders.
The Journey Home opened February 1, 1997 – providing a new concept and a new energy for the supportive continuation of care for chemically dependent / dual diagnosed females. We specialize in the treatment and care of females, addressing all problems and diagnosis pertaining to this population. The Journey Home is located in Denham Springs, Louisiana; 5 miles east of Baton Rouge. The home is on a five acre rural setting with manicured grounds. Only a small sign next to the front door identifies this beautiful home as a treatment facility.
Whole Person Approach
We offer a whole-person approach to the treatment of addictions. We believe that the resident must recover physically, emotionally, mentally, and spirituality. We incorporate the core mindfulness skills, to enable the resident to develop the capacity to nourish and live in the present moment.
The Journey Home is divided into five phases. Upon arriving the resident will spend one week on Orientation before moving into the phases. All phases are designed to achieve independence, break the generation to generation cycle of addiction, and empower these women so they no longer fall to the victimization of addictions, as well as promoting appropriate social behavior.
All of these phases are basic guidelines and represent the basic expectations. Individual needs and specific problems are addressed on an individual basis. All of the phases build upon the previous phases. Work continues as the resident progresses through the program. All phases will address the needs of the dual diagnosed resident.
Statement of Philosopy
The Journey Home believes that Alcoholism is a primary disease that results in the loss of the ability to manage one’s own life. Alcoholism and related chemical dependencies are primary, chronic, and fatal diseases which render victims helpless. As the disease progresses there is further deterioration, both emotional and physical. Defensive lifestyles emerge to meet the negative behavior caused from this disease. Chemically dependent women are often victimized and many come from abusive backgrounds.
Alcoholism is understood as a complex problem involving not only compulsive use, but also an interlocking system of feelings, behavior, and interactions with loved ones which result in a self-defeating lifestyle. Treatment involves not only aiding the resident to become free of chemical use, but also examining the emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal consequences of that use. The basic emphasis of the residential program is on helping residents find and maintain a chemically free lifestyle.
The Journey Home also believes that this is a family disease and that the whole family is affected by addiction. The family is an integral part of the resident’s recovery, therefore The Journey Home believes that it should be treated as such so that the family system may heal as a unit.
The Journey Home believes that women should be empowered and that this empowerment will have positive results in their recovery.This program is based upon a foundation which respects and offers support to the women who are struggling with addiction. Because addiction is a disease this program believes it can be treated successfully with a caring and supportive staff.
We believe that excessive use of any drug reduces the overall quality of human life and endangers physical health, mental health, and life expectancy. We believe that it is important and necessary to intervene with care against the physical, psychological, social, vocational, and spiritual crises exhibited by the chemically dependent resident. We believe the resident should receive quality services and a safe environment in order to recover from all dependencies.
The Journey Home provides long term residential treatment for females. The Journey Home also provides an open ended model of treatment to stabilize the non-appropriate behaviors associated with the lifestyle of chemical use, and is designed to fit the needs of each individual resident.
The Journey Home provides intensive therapeutic care in all areas of therapy. The program includes but is not limited to family involvement, individual therapy, group therapy, nutritional counseling, and co-occurring disorders.

Arrowhead Lodge Recovery Top Five Elements of Effective Alcoholism and Addiction Treatment
- Staff Credentials – licensed professional therapists with addiction specialties, accredited alcohol treatment programs, and board-certified addiction doctors.
- Comprehensive Assessment – A complete assessment of the person’s alcohol use and other medical and behavioral issues by health professionals.
- Customized, Responsive Treatment Plan – Based on the results of a comprehensive assessment, the therapist or doctor should work with the person entering treatment to develop a customized treatment plan. Treatment is not “one size fits all.”
- Evidence-based Therapies – Treatments with the strongest chances for success are those that are informed by the results of rigorous scientific research on alcohol use disorder. These evidence-based options include both behavioral treatments and medications.
- Continuing Recovery Support – A good treatment provider will work with each of their patients to develop a long-term strategy for ongoing recovery support after the initial treatment plan ends. These are sometimes called “continuing care plans,” “discharge plans,” or “aftercare” plans.
We don’t simply treat alcoholics and addicts.
