This program allows those who want to get help for their addiction the opportunity to walk into a police department, ask for and receive help, without fear of arrest. Instead of being arrested, he or she will be brought to a Lacombe ranch that is operated by the New Orleans Mission, which provides round-the-clock treatment for people struggling with alcohol or drug addiction.
If you or a family member is in need of help for addictions, call or stop by the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office, the Franklinton Police Department, or the Bogalusa Police Department. Don't wait until it is too late!
