Located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Bartels Counseling Services, Inc. provides outpatient treatment to adults and adolescents struggling with substance use disorder, mental health problems, or co-occurring disorders. The facility is also one of 30 treatment centers in the state (48 percent) to provide special programming for DUI offenders.

Bartels is open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Evening and weekend sessions may be scheduled by appointment.


To develop an individualized treatment plan, a client may first undergo an initial psychiatric evaluation and/or substance abuse assessment. Depending on their needs, clients may enroll in either intensive outpatient (IOP) or traditional outpatient programs. Programming makes use of a range of evidence-based treatment approaches to help clients acquire and maintain mental stability and sobriety.

Counseling is the primary approach to treatment. Through participation in group and individual sessions, clients learn to identify irrational thinking patterns that contribute to addictive behaviors and/or mental or emotional instability. While addressing these issues, therapy also tackle topics such as relapse prevention, spirituality, and stress management. Once a client a completes outpatient treatment, they may proceed with the center’s aftercare programming.

The goal of family involvement is to create a family unit that is “healthy, strong and well developed.” Bartels is one of 40 facilities in South Dakota (about 65 percent) to offer marriage and couples counseling.
