ABOUT PROGRESS VALLEY MEN’S PROGRAM

Located in Uptown, a popular commercial district in southwestern Minneapolis, Progress Valley Men’s Program offers outpatient and residential care to men struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. The average stay lasts 90 days.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment is 12-step based and includes regular AA meetings, one-on-one counseling, group therapy, family counseling, medication management, case management, educational lectures, and community referrals for additional support after treatment.

A variety of treatment groups throughout treatment is hosted at Progress Valley. There’s a weekly relationship group, which helps clients develop healthy communication and a strong support system, as well as a men’s recovery group. The latter addresses issues specific to men, including cultural stereotypes about men and how to express emotions.

Progress Valley’s co-occurring disorders program is based on a curriculum developed by Dartmouth Medical School with Hazelden. The program teaches clients ways in which they can manage their recovery and prevent relapse.

After a couple of weeks in treatment, residents are expected to obtain and maintain employment, volunteer for 30 hours a week, or attend school. Following residential treatment, clients may transfer to outpatient relapse prevention groups, or move into sober living homes.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes licensed alcohol and drug counselors, nurses, master’s level mental health therapists, and a continuing care counselor. According to the facility’s website, some of the staff members are awake and available for clients 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients live in 28 modest dorm-style beds and eat chef-prepared meals together in a dining hall. Meals are mandatory. For residents with jobs, a prepared brown bag lunch is provided.

Cell phone use is allowed, but only during specific times of the day. Residents must obey a curfew and participate in regular cleaning tasks to maintain their living environment.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The two alumni reviews for the Men's Program to date provide mixed feedback. Robert spoke highly of the staff, writing to Rehabs.com: “I was fortunite enough to be assigned a excellent councilor who took the time and put forth the effort for me to get on the right path,” however also gave one-star ratings for Progress Valley’s exercise options and holistic treatment offerings.

The other anonymous reviewer noted that the lodging is “pretty cramped,” before adding that “This is a great place to stay sober and continue treatment, especially if you are tyring to go back into the work force.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

One loved one to date gave the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, the level of family participation, and the staff’s level of experience and training. The reviewer added: “I think it was a great place run by people who strongly believe in the cause. It was a godsend for my bro who needed to change his life and did.”

FINANCING

Progress Valley accepts private insurance, the State of Minnesota Chemical Dependency Consolidated funding, and Rule 25 state funding. Financial assistance is also available to clients who qualify, when it is available. Additionally, Progress Valley allows for self-pay clients.

Connecting with my brother on a very personal level. He didn't believe that treatment would be effective for him. It seems as though they could have used better funding. I think it was a great place run by people who strongly believe in the cause. It was a godsend for my bro who needed to change his life and did.
