Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


CentraCare Health is private nonprofit, which make up about 44 percent of all treatment facilities in Minnesota, and it operates Clara's House in St. Cloud Minn. It is one of the 42 (11.4 percent) of Minnesota facilities that provides partial hospitalization programs. It offers services to children and teens between 5 and 18 who are struggling with mental health or substance abuse.


According to CentraCare Health's website, it provides intensive, collaborative, therapeutic services for teens, children, and their families. Programming includes referral needs, assessments, and therapy plans.

During their time in PHP, typically two to four weeks in length, children and teens participate in a variety of therapy groups focused on skill-building, art, and recreation. They’ll also meet weekly with their assigned therapist and be joined by parents and siblings for family therapy. For two hours each day, children and teens follow a traditional school curriculum coordinated by the St. Cloud Public School system.

The treatment team provides parents the tools needed to be successful when trying to meet the needs of their children. Ultimately, the home-like environment aims to help youth discover their own sense of self-worth and strength.


CentraCare Health's website notes the treatment team includes more than a dozen child and adolescent psychiatrists and master’s level social workers.


Established in 2004, the program serves approximately 500 children and teens each year at its nearly 25,000 square foot building featuring classrooms, gym, garden, playground, and more.

CentraCare Health also operates a 25-bed residential facility for teens in a property adjacent to Clara’s House.
