SUBSTANCE USE EDUCATION

ACER is a court-approved education provider in most parishes surrounding the greater New Orleans area. We offer educational classes for substance use that are designed for individuals who have committed substance-related offenses.

This 6-8 week program consists of weekly group education sessions centered around topics of substance use and abuse.  Many clients are referred for these sessions due to a DUI/DWI/1st offense possession offense needing to meet court educational requirements, however, clients may be referred from other community agencies, family, friends, self-referred and/or other healthcare professionals. Urine drug screens are conducted randomly throughout the program as necessary or required by the referring entity.

Please bring picture identification and a copy of the court papers stating which offense/class you are needing to attend.
