Situated a short distance outside of Lafayette in Youngsville, LA, Whispering Oaks Lodge offers a comprehensive rehabilitation experience for men and women that want to recover from drug and/or alcohol addiction.
By design, Whispering Oaks Lodge is a destination for relaxation and wellness; a true southern oasis, spanning 18 acres, nestled among beautiful oak trees and a glistening, 3-acre fishing pond stocked with bass, bream, catfish, and white perch. From the porch swings to the stables, every detail breathes good ol’ southern hospitality. And of course, it wouldn’t be Louisiana without authentic cajun cuisine.
Residential Inpatient Treatment
Our 45-day residential inpatient addiction treatment program allows clients to get the time away that is required to focus on becoming healthy. Our program however, does not completely disconnect from the outside world. As part of our philosophy of controlled freedom, business activity that necessitates use of phones and laptops can be conducted during the stay at Whispering Oaks. This is a time to slow down, step back, identify and deal with your addiction and any underlying issues that are holding you back.
The Eagala® Model of equine assisted therapy is a global standard in therapy and personal development. It is a client-centered and solution-oriented approach to treatment. Equine-assisted therapy work often helps clients change and grow more effectively and more quickly than traditional clinical and psychological approaches.
The reason for this is that typically people learn best by actually doing something. Life lessons take deeper meaning when individuals not only understand them but experience them in their bodies. Working with horses is engaging, real time and hands-on. The experience is immediate and felt completely.
Come. See What We Do.
Unlike the traditional “evaluation” available at many treatment centers where the treatment center staff is evaluating the client, the Respite Program at Whispering Oaks Lodge allows a prospective client or family member to evaluate us. We are incredibly proud of the programs and environment that we have developed here at our facility in Youngsville, La. From our expert treatment team comprised of doctors, nurses and counselors through to our certified holistic therapists and administrative staff, we are excited at the opportunity to welcome you to Whispering Oaks Lodge.
