Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Programming during COVID-19

After a period of offering services exclusively through telehealth, our clinic locations have reintroduced in-person work with clients. The well-being of our clients is vitally important, and for this reason it is essential that we reintroduce some in-person work to our clients’ treatment plans, according to our clients’ needs and preferences.

 

Our day treatment and intensive outpatient clients are first priority for in-person treatment. As needed by clients, we are using a mix of in-person and online treatment in order to minimize close contact, control our environment, and reduce risk for exposure to germs. This hybrid approach will allow those clients who cannot be seen in person for illness or any other reason to continue to receive treatment via telehealth. 

 

We are accepting referrals into all of our programs, and some have immediate openings.

 

  • Please note that telehealth makes it possible for clients to join these treatment programs even if they do not live near the clinic where the program originates. 
  • The client does need to reside in the state where the program originates. 
  • During the pandemic, the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin have amended licensure so that providers can practice in these states with reciprocity. 
  • Our intake department will remain on top of changes in public policy so clients are informed. 

TO REFER CLIENTS to any of these programs, please contact our intake department at 800.438.1772.
