Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Programming during COVID-19

During this unique time when our clinics must remain closed to in-person appointments, Christian Family Solutions is offering all of our Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Programs via telehealth. Group members are connecting with clinicians via secure video connection.

 

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 states of Minnesota and Wisconsin have amended licensure so that providers can practice in these states with reciprocity. This means any of our programs below are accessible to residents of Wisconsin and Minnesota.
  • TO REFER CLIENTS to any of these programs, please contact our intake department at 800.438.1772.
