MISSION

Life Development Resources is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services under Rule 245G as well as supported by a Rule 29 status. We treat co-occurring chemical dependency and mental health diagnoses with an integrated approach to assist our clients in achieving an abundant life.

Our program is designed to teach clients the tools they need to be able to:

  • Manage emotions
  • Tolerate distress in life including urges to use substances
  • Remain mindful
  • Have healthy interpersonal relationships

The program assists clients in addressing target behaviors that greatly affect quality of life by addressing both mental health and substance use needs. A multidisciplinary team comprised of Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors, Mental Health Professionals, Practitioners, & Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners will assist in the development of integrated treatment planning and specialized clinical support.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

All prospective clients entering the program will be assessed by a Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor, as well as by a Mental Health Professional or Mental Health Practitioner to identify client needs.

Clients that meet admission criteria for intensive day treatment will then assist in the development of a personalized treatment plan to address their individual goals.

Treatment will be provided using a step-down model. The program begins with intensive day treatment at 3 hours a day, 5 days per week. After a period of success, the time commitment incrementally decreases ending at 1 group and 1 individual session a week. Treatment lengths are based upon individual progress which will be continually assessed.

State certified adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) will be utilized in conjunction with and substance use education skill development. Our program integrates individual therapy, group therapy, and coaching call access to DBT providers 24 hours a day. Additionally, a family component is offered monthly to assist clients working toward restoring relationships. This component also provides education on addiction to families involved in providing support to clients.

WHAT ARE CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS?

Substance use and mental health disorders are often co-occurring, meaning that clients with substance use diagnoses may also meet criteria for mental health diagnoses such as depression, generalized anxiety, post traumatic stress, or personality disorders. Treating the mental and substance use disorders with integrated services is more effective in addressing the interconnected needs. It can also be more cost effective for clients. Treating both the substance use and mental health disorders is essential to clients working towards healing and creating a life they find worth living.
