ABOUT PROGRESS VALLEY MEN’S PROGRAM
Located in Uptown, a popular commercial district in southwestern Minneapolis, Minn., 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
Individualized to each client, treatment is 12-step based and includes regular Alcoholics Anonymous (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 is 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 weeks in treatment, residents are expected to obtain and maintain employment, volunteer in the community, or attend school for a minimum of 30 hours per week. Following residential treatment, clients may transfer to outpatient relapse prevention groups, or move into sober living homes.
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 20 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 day. Residents must obey a curfew and participate in regular cleaning tasks to maintain their living environment.

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.” They rated the program's affordability highest at a perfect five stars, followed by family participation and cleanliness at four stars.
On CiteHealth to date, one anonymous alum rated Progress Valley a perfect five stars.

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.”
