Life Development Resources is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services under Rule 31 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 chemicals
• Remain mindful
• Have healthy interpersonal relationships
The program will assist clients in addressing target behaviors of what they would like to increase as well as decrease in their lives addressing both mental health and chemical dependency. A multidisciplinary team comprised of Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors, Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners and Mental Health Practitioners will assist in providing support and in the development of integrated treatment planning.
WHAT ARE CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS
Chemical health 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 chemical health disorders with integrated services assists in addressing the needs brought about by both components and their interconnected impacts. It can also be a more cost effective for clients. Treating both the chemical and mental health disorders is essential to clients working towards healing and creating a life they find worth living.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
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 assess for client needs. Clients that meet admission criteria, for intensive day treatment will then assist in the development of a treatment plan to address their individual target goals. Treatment will be provided in a step-down schedule. The program begins with intensive day treatment at 3 hours a day, 5 days per 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 chemical dependency education and substance use 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 in working towards restoring relationships and providing education on addiction to those involved with providing support to clients.
