Northeast HSA provides services and treatment to people throughout 12 parishes in Northeastern Louisiana: Caldwell, East Carroll, Franklin, Jackson, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse,Ouachita,Richland, Tensas, Union, and West Carroll

This Friday, January 27th the Northeast Delta Human Services Authority is holding an event for healthcare professionals to raise awareness on tobacco dependence. A Clear New Year will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the West Monroe Convention Center.

A Clear New Year will include speakers such as Jennifer Haneline with the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco Free Living, Hope Anderson, a registered dietician and former Miss Louisiana, and  Cesar Camacho, a previous smoker who now owns Infit gyms to promote healthy living.

The Northeast Delta Human Services Authority  is a Local Governing Entity that aims to raise awareness and help people realize that mental and physical health are connected.  According to Jean Hartzog of the Northeast Delta HSA, forty percent of cigarettes purchased are by adult smokers who struggle with a mental illness or a substance abuse problem. The Northeast Delta HSA serves people who struggle with developmental disorders and severe addictive disorders through providing mental health services.

More information on the Northeast Delta HSA and its event A Clear New Year can be found here.
