Review by Contributors


A part of the Meridian Behavioral Health Network, Douglas Place offers residential substance abuse treatment to adult men and women. Clients with co-occurring mental health disorders can also be treated here. The facility is in East Grand Forks, Minn., close to I-29 and about 20 minutes from the University of Minnesota.


All clients receive a chemical health assessment upon admission to determine the proper course of care. Treatment at Douglas Place takes a holistic view of recovery and is designed to treat the whole person. The approach combines 12-step principles with evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and relapse prevention.

The program also involves psychiatric and psychological services, living and coping skills education, and anger management groups.


According to the facility’s website, the treatment team includes psychologists and a certified nursing staff. The one alum and one loved one surveyed by at the time of this writing gave all gave the facility four out of five stars for its staff’s level of treatment and experience.
