About The O'Brien House:
O’Brien House was established in 1971 to serve adult recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. The center was named for Paul S. “Pat” O’Brien, who spent 53 years of his life working with alcoholics and educating the public about the disease of alcoholism. Through the years, O’Brien House has drawn the appreciation and support of the Baton Rouge community.
Over the past 40 years, the services of O’Brien House have evolved into a more comprehensive continuum of care that includes treatment, prevention and community development initiatives. Services include the following:
- 60 Residential Treatment Beds and 10 Inpatient Treatment Beds
- Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs
- Adult Substance Education Program (ASEP), a component of District Attorney’s DWI Diversion Program
- Parenting Classes
- Grief Counseling

- Educational Services
- Social Enterprises
- O’Brien House hosts two Amricorps Delta Service Corps members who are responsible for providing health education and outreach programs for children and youth at risk for addiction and/or unhealthy lifestyles.
With these support services, their clients can stabilize their lives, focus on recovery and prepare for a new life after they leave O'Brien House.
