Review by Contributors


Named for the Lemhi Shoshone woman who helped guide Lewis and Clark through the western United States in the early 1800s, the Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling offers outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults. It’s based in Dickinson, N.D., and does not provide detox services.


Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling offers comprehensive drug and alcohol evaluations by appointment. The results from the evaluation, available approximately two weeks after they are taken, are sent to the client with treatment recommendations. They can also be requested by and sent to local governing bodies (with a 24-hour turnaround), such as court attorneys or the North Dakota Department of Transportation.

According to the facility’s website, Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling strives to meet their clients “right where they are at.” Clients engage in a personalized treatment plan that utilizes many treatment modalities, including the 12-Steps, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), faith-based therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, solution-focused therapy, and rational emotive behavioral therapy (REMT). The facility also offers family counseling, a Prime for Life DUI group, and aftercare.


According to SSAC’s website, the facility’s small team includes two licensed addiction counselors and an office manager.

REVIEWS has not yet received any reviews from SSAC’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff; however, Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling received polarizing reviews from two secondary sources. Google received one review from Geno, who gave the facility one out of five stars and wrote: “Wouldnt even give them one star if it would let me!! This place was very pleasant and accommodating until they got my money!! Then totally unprofessional and rude while trying to get my results!!”[1]

On, however, Jan gave the facility a maximum five-star review and wrote: “You have to go see these people. They really care about you and know what they are doing. Their office is very private and you feel like you are at home with your family.”[2]


The facility accepts both public and private insurance, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Sanford Health, and United Behavioral Health.
