Adult Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS)

Our Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) program integrates mental health, medical, and substance use care in an inpatient, 24-hour, supervised setting. A step below hospitalization in our community-based system of care, these services help adults who need a high level of treatment and assistance. Individuals 18 years of age or older with a diagnosis of a mental illness who meet eligibility as designated by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). The team includes clinical social workers, mental health practitioners, nurses, certified peer specialists, therapists, and psychiatrists.

Services are designed to help enhance psychiatric stability, personal and emotional adjustment, self-sufficiency, and independent living skills for individuals who often have co-occurring mental health and substance use diagnoses. 

  • 24-hour on-site staff and assistance in a residential setting
  • Assessment of immediate needs and factors that lead to the crisis
  • Individualized treatment to address immediate needs and restore the individual to a pre-crisis level of functioning
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Living skills/foundational wellness development, including exercise  and nutrition
  • Medication management

Three locations, Diane Ahrens Residence in St. Paul, Nancy Page Residence in Minneapolis, and Steiner Kelting Mental Wellness in Chaska, offer a hybrid crisis and IRTS treatment model that meets the community’s needs by providing short-term crisis stabilization services in the same setting. When appropriate, the individual can move directly into IRTS, removing the barriers and waiting for the next steps to be taken on a path toward recovery. Our treatment philosophy is to meet clients with the appropriate level of care in the least disruptive and restrictive way, reducing the trauma associated with recidivism.
