About Us

Beacon Behavioral Hospital, formally known as Synergy, was first established in 1998 as a free standing Community Mental Health Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Today, Beacon employs over 300 caring staff at seven different outpatient locations in Louisiana: Baton Rouge, Metairie, Slidell, Hammond, Houma, Bogalusa, Bunkie and Lutcher. As well as four hospitals located in New Orleans, Lacombe, Bunkie and Lutcher, Louisiana.

Beacon’s mission, “to provide unsurpassed patient care in a compassionate, cost effective, and ethical manner”, has been, and will always be, the cornerstone of Beacon’s success. We are proud of our success in offering our clients superior mental health programs that focus on putting their needs first and helping our clients see “a Guiding Light Towards a Brighter Tomorrow”. 

At Beacon, we believe that our success is measured by the extent at which we help others. Beacon’s multidisciplinary team treats integrate a holistic approach to treating clients. Our programs incorporates every facet of assistance with those stressors that may be contributing to our clients decline:  managing their behavioral disturbances and psychiatric disorders, investigating and securing available community resources for their primary needs (housing, food, clothing), and navigating the complexities of medication compliance. We gather all necessary resources to develop and implement a livable discharge plan that maximizes the clients potential to improve their lives in the community.
