There's now a new business to help behavioral health patients in Crowley.

A new on-site pharmacy at the Crowley Behavioral Health Clinic is aimed at improving the overall health of those with mental illness and substance abuse disorders.

The clinic and Genoa Healthcare held a grand opening for the pharmacy Wednesday afternoon.

In Louisiana, around 1 in 20 adults live with serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression.

The pharmacy will make it easier for the clinic's patients to get their prescriptions. It will also improve medication adherence and health outcomes for those with mental illness, substance disorders, and other complex, chronic conditions.
