What is an LGE?

Louisiana Act 384 merged mental health, developmental disability and addictive disorder services (or co-occurring disorders) into Local Governing Entities (LGEs) as of July 1, 2010. Northeast Delta HSA is one of 10 independent LGEs. Each LGE is administered by an Executive Director who reports to a local board of community volunteers. Each LGE remains part of the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals, but not in a direct reporting line to the Louisiana Office of Behavioral Health. Northeast Delta HSA serves the same 12 parishes in northeast Louisiana that its former “Region 8” organization served: Caldwell, East Carroll, Franklin, Jackson, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, Tensas, Union and West Carroll.

Dr. Monteic A. Sizer serves as Executive Director of Northeast Delta Human Services Authority (Northeast Delta HSA). He joined the organization in May 2013 as its first Executive Director. He is uniquely qualified to advocate on behalf of citizens located in the twelve Northeast Delta HSA parishes he represents because he exemplifies how people can meet their greatest human potential based on accountability, integrity and a willingness to engage in their own lives.
