Service Description

This program is a Residential (live-in) program. It is for people who have patterns of problems with the use of alcohol or other drugs. Residential programs serve people while they live temporarily in housing owned and staffed by the agency. People live in the residential program to begin or continue changes in life patterns to stop using alcohol or drugs (chemical dependency).

Residential treatment programs provide a wider range of more intensive services than non-residential treatment. Residential services are set up to meet more acute or complex needs. The goals of both kinds of treatment are the same, with differences in location and intensity.

Chemical dependency means that someone's body has changed from drug or alcohol use, causing problems when they try to stop using drugs. Chemical dependency is also called alcohol or drug addiction, or substance abuse. Support and services help people to learn skills and make changes to reduce or stop use.

Residential treatment includes:
* An assessment (evaluation) of the person's needs, focusing on drug and alcohol use, life challenges, coping strategies, and resources
* Making and following a plan to meet the needs in the assessment. This can be a plan to provide different kinds of support services. It can also have plans to get other kinds of help as needed.
* Treatment in a Residential setting may help a person to stay away from drugs and alcohol by teaching new skills and helping to avoid relapse.

This program is licensed for Chemical Dependency Treatment by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) under the law called Rule 31. It is approved by DHS as a Residential Treatment facility.

MN Adult & Teen Challenge offers programs for adults and teenagers, as well as aftercare services.

Adult treatment programs include both long-term and short-term intensive programs.

MN Adult & Teen Challenge offers a residential program for teenage girls and teenage boys struggling with chemical addictions, as well as behavioral problems.
