The Family Recovery Program of the state of Louisiana was developed to meet the need for evidenced-based treatment and support for the families of incarcerated offenders. Family therapy and community-based services support the goals of creating healthy families, developing recovery-based life skills, developing risk prevention for offenders’ children, and reducing recidivism of offenders.
