Mental health services affect systems in our society that include education, health, social services and criminal justice. COPE Behavioral Health, LLC, and organizations like it help fill crucial gaps in services while also building bridges of understanding and cooperation in the differing systems.

Behavioral disorders involve a pattern of disruptive behaviors that continue for at least six months or more. They cause problems in school, at home and in social situations. Most people will show some of these behaviors briefly from time to time, but behavior disorders are more serious.

Behavioral disorders include:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Emotional Behavioral Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Behavioral disorders can lead to the following issues:

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity
  • Defiant behavior
  • Drug use
  • Criminal activity

COPE is committed to the concept of the rehabilitation and restoration of a person to a condition of health that allows for useful and productive activity through a holistic professional approach. COPE is relentlessly dedicated to providing quality mental health care and rehabilitation services for children, adolescents and adults who experience acute psychological distress, behavioral disorders or serious mental illness.

Through individualized and professionally designed treatment programs, consisting of therapeutic in- home and community services, we pursue goals that lead to an overall improvement in the quality of life of the individual.

COPE, with offices in Baker-Zachary and Hammond, seeks to provide adults, children, and adolescents with outpatient mental health services designed to help them become and remain as functional as possible. If you, a love one or someone you have come in contact with could benefit from behavioral health services, contact us at Referrals@COPEBehavioral.net or call us at (225) 757-5699.
