The Northeast Delta Human Services Authority (HSA) is a local governing entity under the Department of Health that provides a safety net of services for those that suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, and developmental issues.

Over the past few years, HSA has steadily been growing while serving the community, which has opened the door for more and more opportunities. This month, they are excited to announce one of these new opportunities: the grand-opening of the new Prevention and Wellness Center on Monday, November 25

A group of different organizations have come together to sponsor National Prescription Take-Back Day in Northeast Louisiana this Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 am - 2 pm. Everyone is encouraged to bring their outdated perscription drugs, especially narcotics, in order to properly dispose of them.

The drop-off sites include: Super 1 Foods - Bastrop, Ruston, Monroe, and West Monroe; Brookshire's - Monroe, West Monroe, and Farmerville; and La. State Police, Troop F - Monroe. 

MONROE, La. (AP) — Deputies say a Louisiana man who called 911 to report an ax attack was found uninjured and in possession of meth he says was planted by a ghost.

News outlets report Michael L. Auttenberry is charged with giving a false police report and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Ouachita Parish Sheriff's deputies say Auttenberry called authorities this month to report that he had been hit in the head with an ax.

There will be multiple places across the area to drop off unused or expired medication for proper disposal from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.
