Step 3: Complete Phone Interview and Scheduling

After completing Step 1 & 2, the final step is to complete a brief Phone Interview.  Someone from this office will be reaching out to you.  You may also call us directly at 318-209-4524.  After the interview is complete, we will schedule you to be admitted within 24-48 hours.  If for some reason we don’t hear from you, we will make several follow up attempts to get in touch with you.

Jail Applicants

If the person is incarcerated, please submit the online application on their behalf and notate which jail.  We will mail them a “Welcome Packet” which takes the place of the Phone Interview.  Once they have returned the packet by mail, we will begin communicating with any legal parties listed on the application. You can help to expedite the process by finding any email addresses for their Attorney, Judge, District Attorney, and/or Probation Officer.  This process can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months, sometimes longer.

You can also download a copy of the WELCOME PACKET here if you are able to get it to them faster.

*All applicants released from jail with a court order or condition of their bond must report within 24 hours.
