These centers operate under strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure visitors are safe. Masks or face coverings are required for entry and service. Survivors remain in their cars, a specialist wearing a face mask will receive documents through the window and return them. 

No appointments are necessary. 

Allen Parish will have a Drive-through Recovery Center (document drop-off) location soon.
