Our Mission & Philosophy

At Longleaf Hospital, our mission and goal is to provide a premier treatment environment that sets the tone for lifelong recovery from mental health and substance abuse concerns. To that end, we are committed to providing a truly personalized experience of healing for every child, adolescent, teen, adult, and senior adult patient who chooses to engage with programming at our center.

Patient-First Care

At Longleaf, located in Alexandria, Louisiana, we work to find the strengths in each person’s journey so that he or she can use his or her unique gifts on the road to recovery. Additionally, our multidisciplinary treatment team works to uncover every patient’s individual barriers to sustained health and wellness both in treatment and back in his or her home environment.

These personal strengths and challenges innately shape the treatment planning process at Longleaf, ensuring that each patient is afforded a plan of care that reflects his or her existing resources and most important needs.

Offering Hope

Longleaf’s treatment program is both comprehensive and flexible, offering supports along the full continuum of care. Our array of treatment modalities means that each person will be served in the setting and environment that reflects the level of care that he or she needs at the time of admission, and this can be adjusted throughout his or her time at Longleaf.

We, at Longleaf, view each person who enters treatment at our center as deserving of the very finest in psychiatric care, and therefore we have established a staff of medical and mental health professionals who are some of the most talented and experienced in the field.

In addition to implementing the latest in scientifically-backed therapies and interventions each day, our team works diligently to co-create a treatment atmosphere of dignity, compassion, and hope for a brighter tomorrow.

At Longleaf, we understand the pain and heartache that can arise when you or someone you care about begins grappling with a mental health concern. However, we have had the honor of helping many patients regain control of their lives, and have witnessed them return to their homes, communities, and families with renewed sense of vitality and strength.

It is our belief that a better life is not only possible, but that each person is capable of experiencing deep and lasting healing with the proper services and supports.
