Substance Abuse

Iberville Parish Substance Abuse Center (IPSAC) has provided assessment, prevention, education, referral, and outpatient substance abuse treatment services to individuals with problems arising from chemical abuse and addiction for over 25 years. The clinic offers outpatient virtual and in-person services to meet the needs of Iberville Parish residents age 18 and over, including group and individual therapy. The clinic offers recommendations for probation and parole agencies and referrals to appropriate detoxification and inpatient services as needed.

The 18th Judicial District Specialty Courts contracts with IPSAC to provide therapeutic services and urine drug screens for the 18th JDC Drug Court Program.

Other services include prevention training and education services for educators and children grades K-5 through the local schools throughout the parish.

IPSAC is funded through the generosity of the Iberville Parish Council and state contracts. At this time, IPSAC does not bill public or private insurance agencies.
