Breaking News!

For years we’ve heard your requests to bring our child psychiatric services to the Hammond, Ponchatoula, and Baton Rouge area and though we’re very sorry it’s taken so long, we’re finally on the cusp of making this a reality!  We hope you find the best therapy and psychiatric consulting services for children and teens available in the Hammond area a little closer to home.

This clinic is important as behavioral and emotional concerns affect an entire community on many levels.  Not only is a family’s ability to enjoy life to it’s fullest affected, but a community can suffer as well both socially and economically.  If you will allow the following example: ask any teacher how a child with an emotional or behavioral concern can affect an entire classroom’s ability to learn.  This can send ripples throughout a community.  Parents have to leave work to pick up their child from school because of anxiety, depression or behavior and hence can’t meet their employment expectations.  “All night” at home is spent doing homework instead of for instance: enjoying a night out at a restaurant, going shopping, or signing up for an after-school activity.  Local shop owners wonder where their clients are.  Tangipahoa Parish wants to keep schools the best they can be but when children are sad or can’t focus because of ADHD this invariably affects their grades which trickles up to school performance scores.  So you can see how helping even one person can also help a wide range of others.  A child doing well in school makes the whole class happy, everyone learns better, a family is happier when the child comes home with their homework done, a shop owner gets a few more customers that night, school test scores go up with property values and community gets more revenue to pay for services!

Acadian Care realizes that it’s a combination of family values, faith, and caring that make the difference between a community that succeeds and one that doesn’t and we are proud to be a part of the Tangipahoa Parish Community with our third location giving us another site to deliver care.
