The Extra Mile

Client Assistance & Program Support

1900 Lamy Lane
Monroe, LA 71201

Phone: 318-388-6088

As state and federal appropriations have diminished, the needs have not. The Extra Mile fills the gaps…because we care. Though not all individuals in our region suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or developmental disabilities, it is fairly accurate to say that every individual, directly or indirectly, will feel the impact of one of these diseases during his or her lifetime. The Extra Mile has two resource or drop-in centers for mental health peers run by peers who have reached an understanding of their mental illness and are successfully handling it. The drop-in centers are located at 912 St. John Street, Monroe, LA and 901 White Street, Ruston, LA.
