ABOUT MAYO CLINIC IN ROCHESTER, MN
Established in 1972, the Mayo Clinic of Rochester, Minn., helps individuals and families struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, and co-occurring disorders. Today, the center runs one of just 104 (29.2 percent) of residential programs in the state (and one of 241 (67.7 percent) outpatient programs), serving adults ages 18 and older through its Addiction Services Department.
Individuals enrolled in a Mayo Clinic program may also be eligible to participate in clinical trials, thereby contributing to research developments and breakthroughs in the treatment of the disease of addiction.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To be eligible for treatment at Mayo Clinic, prospective clients must either call the center to request an assessment or be referred by their local health care provider. Following the assessment, clinicians work alongside clients to create an individualized treatment plan that combines counseling with medication and goal setting. Mayo Clinic also has capacity to treat individuals battling depression, bipolar disorder, and other co-occurring disorders.
In the Intensive Addiction Program, clients spend 30 days in group and individual therapy with a counselor or psychiatrist, education, and personal time. Evenings offer opportunity for recreation as well as attendance at self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Clients gain from research-based modalities like motivational enhancement, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), spiritual guidance, and mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Anti-craving medication may also be available.
There’s an Outpatient Addiction Program that offers half-day addiction services, available as both a step-down from a higher level of care or directly. The four-week program consists of individual and group therapy, lab testing, medication management, and ongoing nursing assessments.
Families and other loved ones can attend Family Days, available every other week. Each program at Mayo Clinic concludes with a three-step aftercare program as well as a post-treatment maintenance plan and psychiatric or psychological follow-up care.
