ABOUT PRAIRIE ST. JOHN’S
In the heart of Fargo, N.D., Prairie St. Johns offers residential and outpatient treatment to children and adults struggling with addiction, mental health issues, and co-occurring disorders. According to the facility’s website, most residents hail from Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., however it also serves clients from throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, and other states. Medically monitored detox is available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
All clients undergo an assessment upon admission to determine the most appropriate level of care.
Treatment is based on the disease model of addiction. Residential clients attend regular AA and NA meetings, participate in group and individual therapy, and focus on the development of key recovery skills, which include emotional functioning, family dynamics, personal responsibility, work/school reintegration, and relapse prevention.
The partial hospitalization program (PHP) runs Monday through Friday during daytime hours and offers the same intensive treatment as the residential program, without requiring an overnight stay. There’s also an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets for three hours in the evenings on four days a week, as well as a less intensive outpatient option that meets once or twice a week for ongoing care and maintenance.
The treatment team includes board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrists, master’s level therapists, registered and licensed nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, licensed addiction counselors, and behavioral health technicians.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility has 110 beds. Otherwise, there is currently limited information on Prairie St. John’s website regarding its living arrangements and related offerings.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the 15 alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, four gave mostly positive reviews, eight gave mostly negative reviews, and three remained ambivalent or neutral.
All of the former clients who were pleased with their stay described compassionate and dedicated staff, including R.T. who noted: “The treatment staff were very accommodating for individual time if it was needed.”
The negative reviews called out a facility in need of renovations, as well as a lack of holistic activities. One anonymous reviewer wrote: “Too big a operation, not enough staff to take care of everyone's needs.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the four anonymous friends and family surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, one gave the facility a mostly positive review, awarding the facility four and five stars in most categories. “They were able to diagnosis my son almost immediately,” the reviewer wrote. “They work great with the kids and make them feel at ease in a tough situation. However, there was not enough time dedicated to school work.”
The other three reviews were neutral, indicating that treatment was adequate as one of the few options in the area, but expensive.
