Lease finalized for The Bridge Center mental health facility

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - RI International signed a five-year, $1.1 million dollar lease for a building at 3455 Florida Boulevard which will become the long-talked Bridge Center mental health facility, according to a Baton Rouge Business Report article.

The location was one of three eyed by the center’s board of directors in September of 2019. The other potential locations were Baton Rouge General’s old Mid City emergency room, or the Detox Center on S Foster Drive.

The 30-bed clinic could end up treating as many as 5,000 residents a year who are facing a mental health or substance abuse crisis.
