To protect the health and safety of our clients and staff amid COVID-19, we have temporarily closed Huss St. Paul (1593 Hewitt Avenue, St. Paul, MN, 55104), and our adult intensive outpatient substance use disorder services until further notice.
The Restoring Place (700 8th Street East St. Paul, MN 55106) is temporarily closed and will re-open as an Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) facility called Eighth Street Residence in November 2020.
We provide innovative treatment programming for gender-identifying men and women with co-occurring substance use and mental illness. Many individuals served by the program may also be experiencing problems such as homelessness, poverty, violence, legal issues, and unemployment.
What makes us different?
- We provide integrated substance use and mental health services in a single treatment setting.
- Our team works collaboratively to assess a client’s treatment readiness and match the treatment to his or her attitude towards change.
- We assist each client in developing awareness and motivation for recovery, in moving along the stages of recovery, and in making his or her own decision to engage in the change process.
- We tailor each treatment plan to each client’s particular needs–each client receives the right type of treatment at the appropriate intensity.
- We use stage-wise treatment intervention and harm-reduction strategies, reducing the risk of substance use and its psychological, physical, social, and economic consequences.
- We work collaboratively with individuals, families, and care providers to create a comprehensive, targeted treatment plan focused on the client’s specific needs and circumstances.
