We offer Intensive Outpatient Treatment with Lodging at our Delano and St. Louis Park locations, including two houses for each site. Our lodging program is for males only. Food is provided at each house, however – as this is not an inpatient program – we only provide basic food supplies. Clients are expected to provide funds for their own supplementary food and are expected to purchase special requests on their own accord.
Our IOP program is tailored to individual needs and starts at 8 weeks of treatment. This also includes individual meetings with an LADC, and – if needed – a therapist for Dual Diagnosis clients. Please keep in mind these hours may be extended as we are a progress-based facility. Our intention is to ensure the best probability of success for each client.
Currently, our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is provided on Monday – Thursday: 8 am to 4 pm; Friday and Saturday: 8 am to 12 pm. This includes
scheduled group time, lectures, life skills, and individual sessions led by both psychologists and counselors.
During the treatment, the client and their assigned LADC will work on a treatment plan and goals. If the client needs more services, we may request more hours of treatment or individual therapy with on-site mental health providers. We base our services on individual progress and needs, and sometimes clients will benefit from more treatment than originally projected. The typical trajectory of our program lasts 8-12 weeks.
For the safety of potential and current clients: All potential clients of
Professional Counseling Center will be reviewed by our Intake Review team before entering into our program. To be considered for our program, they must have a current (within 45 days) Chemical Evaluation or Rule 25, a current list of any medical condition they have (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, or chronic pain), and a list of all current medications that are beings prescribed to them. Upon intake, clients must also have 30 day supply of said medications for proper intake and transition into our program. Professional Counseling Center has the right to refuse service to anyone we feel does not fit our program – and will not retain clients we feel can benefit more from a higher level of care. This will not be based on discrimination against an individual’s race, color, national or ethnic origin, transgender status, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, veteran status, age, or protected status. For housing purposes, we have chosen to only house male clients.
Our review team places clients into the houses on bed availability and individual needs, so we can not guarantee placement into a certain house at the time of scheduling – but will try to accommodate the clients the best we can.
