ABOUT RED RIVER BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SYSTEM
Located in Grand Forks, N.D., Red River Behavioral Health System (formerly known as the Stadter Center) provides intensive inpatient treatment programs for adults, adolescents, and seniors struggling from chemical dependency, mental illness, or a dual diagnosis. Opened by Meridian Behavioral Health, which operates 21 regional treatment facilities, in 2016, the 70-bed facility offers a medical- and evidence-based treatment program, which may include on-site medical detoxification and medication-assisted therapy to alleviate symptoms of substance withdrawal.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon intake, individuals may undergo a rigorous assessment, which evaluates their psychological, physical, medical, and psychosocial needs. Through the assessment, intake clinicians develop an individualized treatment program. According to Meridian’s website, programming utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). These approaches are designed to motivate an individual to change and facilitate that change. Red River also utilizes a “Health Realization” approach that focuses on the role of “mind, thought and consciousness” in treatment.
Throughout inpatient treatment, clients struggling with chemical dependency may participate in a range of therapeutic activities, including group therapy sessions and individual counseling, as well as classes on relapse prevention techniques and coping skills. Substance abuse clients are also introduced to 12-step principles and practices, which may include attending on-site meetings and performing associated “step-work.” Patients with a primary psychiatric disorder or a dual diagnosis typically also receive ongoing medication management.
There is no information available concerning the average length of inpatient treatment. Once a client is stabilized, they may be referred to a less-intensive level of care. Before clients are discharged from the program, clinicians may form an individualized aftercare plan for each client to assist them in transitioning back into the community. Along with a referral to an outpatient program, aftercare planning may include linkages to community-based resources, sober housing, and vocational training opportunities.
Red River Behavioral Health System employs an experienced, multidisciplinary team of medical doctors, primary psychiatrists, substance abuse counselors, nurses, recreational therapists, mental health clinicians, and a behavioral health support team.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Although the facility’s website does not provide information on specific accommodations, private psychiatric hospitals typically provide a clinical, supervised environment with a comfortable, therapeutic atmosphere conducive to recovery. The 70-bed facility may be separated into issue- and age-specific units to better-treat its population.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The one alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing approved of most aspects of the facility. The former patient gave four out of five stars for the facility’s counseling options and the treatment staff’s level of experience and training. However, the survey respondent gave a lower two-star rating for the inclusion of holistic treatments. “The staff was great. As well as the center's meal/nutrition plan. Their did seem to be a lot more free time than what I expected to be full of treatments,” the alum wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date was more critical of the facility, offering a three-star rating for the facility’s staff support, one star for its aftercare planning, and two stars for the facility’s counseling options. “Needs better leadership, holistic offerings and counseling,” the loved one wrote. However, the survey respondent did give a four-star rating for the facility’s family participation.
Red River Behavioral Health System accepts a number of private insurance plans and may assist patients finance treatment through third-party lenders.
