Most of the alternatives to outpatient in Minnesota are non-hospital residential drug rehab programs, although there are a few proper inpatient options in the state. One of the pluses in Minnesota, because this is not as common in other states, is the number of long-term facilities which provide treatment for longer than the typical 30-day short term programs. There are far more long term programs in the state, and these facilities provide a comprehensive treatment plan that engages clients in treatment anywhere from 60-120 days on average. This gives addicted residents much more time to realistically address every aspect of their life and their substance abuse problem so that they can have the best chance at staying clean. Treatment professionals can also take the time and utilize resources which may not be available in an outpatient facility to also address any co-occurring issue, after an assessment of the client's current physical and mental health status. Clients will typically engage in different types of substance abuse counseling and actions to address a co-occurring mental health disorder if this exists.
Regular outpatient treatment in Minnesota is typically an one day per week commitment where services include substance abuse counselling and therapy. Intensive outpatient is usually 3 days per week for the entire day, and there are 210 facilities in the state which provide intensive outpatient services. There are also 59 facilities in Minnesota which provide even more intensive day treatment/partial hospitalization services, which often includes more intensive and specific treatment for addicted individuals who also need to address a co-occurring mental health disorder or other underlying condition. In outpatient treatment in Minnesota, clients can expect to participate in both group and individual counseling, although some programs do also integrate family, and marital/couples counseling into the treatment process.
