The North Dakota Department of Human Services operates eight regional offices that provide a variety of human services including substance abuse and mental health treatment. The Southeast Human Service Center provides services to the residents of Cass, Ransom, Richland, Sargent, Steele, and Trail counties.

According to the facility’s website, the Southeast Human Service Center (SHSC) in Fargo, N.D. provides a vast array of substance abuse services including detox, medication management, programs for co-occurring mental health disorders, outpatient treatment, day treatment, and residential services.


SHSC provides several detox options depending on each client’s needs. Options include a social detoxification program and medically supervised inpatient detox. Clients can also meet with a psychiatrist or medical doctor for medication management and medical monitoring.

Primary treatment programs include outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and day treatment. All three programs provide group, family, and individual counseling and educational programs. The low intensity outpatient program provides up to 10 hours per week of programming for a period of three to 12 weeks. The regular intensive outpatient program provides eight to 20 hours of programming for a period of four to 10 weeks. Finally, the day program provides full-day programming four or five days per week for a period of three to five weeks.

Clients in need of supportive living arrangements while in any of the primary programs can be enrolled in one of the residential services, such as residential group homes, semi-independent living homes and short-term crisis residential care. Individuals with serious substance abuse and mental health concerns may be eligible for inpatient treatment.


Staff members include psychiatrists, psychologists, addiction counselors, social workers, case managers, nurses, and vocational rehabilitation workers. The one alum polled by at the time of this writing rated the staff’s level of training and experience five out of five stars.
