There are more than 350 treatment facilities in Minnesota, so it’s important to do your research about the services offered. Most are outpatient facilities, but the state has a higher proportion of inpatient (or residential) treatment facilities than most. At a residential facility, clients are safely separated from potential threats to their sobriety, which can be critical for people battling opioid dependence.
In the treatment field, it’s well-understood that addiction can come with underlying conditions—most commonly, mental illness. Dual diagnosis facilities are designed to help in these situations, by offering mental health services alongside substance abuse treatment. There’s a smaller selection of these rehabs in Minnesota, so be sure to ask about which services are offered if you’re interested in dual diagnosis treatment.
Almost all facilities in Minnesota will accept cash or self-payment, but the insurance plans that they accept will always vary. For clients who can’t afford treatment, about 1 in 4 facilities will offer treatment at no charge. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has more information about qualifying for financial help.
