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.

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 disorders, outpatient treatment, day treatment, and residential care. Southeast Human Service Center is one of 11 facilities managed by the government of North Dakota.


SHSC provides several detox options depending on each client’s needs. Options include a social detoxification program and medically supervised residential detox. Clients can also meet with a psychiatrist or medical doctor for medication management and medical monitoring. SHSC is one of six facilities with an outpatient detox program in the state, and one of eight facilities in the state with a residential detox program.

Primary treatment programming provides 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 offerings, 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 residential treatment.


The treatment team at SHSC includes psychiatrists, psychologists, addiction counselors, social workers, case managers, nurses, and vocational rehabilitation workers. The facility is one of 12 facilities in the state that are licensed by the Department of Health. The one alum polled by at the time of this writing rated the staff’s level of training and experience with five out of five stars.


Although no information is available concerning the facility's residences, the one individual surveyed by at the time of this writing gave the facility five out of five stars for its accommodations and amenities.


The one former client surveyed by to date gave SHSC mostly positive reviews, awarding Southeast Human Services five out of five stars for its holistic offerings, level of connectivity, family participation, affordability, and facility cleanliness. The alum gave four out of five stars for exercise and leisure opportunities and meals and nutrition. Alum E.W. described the team as “wonderful.” However, they did give the facility just one star for its faith-based program, adding: “Need more faith.”

On Google, Southeast Human Services received an average 3.5 out of five-star rating based on 13 reviews to date.[1] Written feedback is fairly limited. However, specific praise is given to the level of family support and the educational element of the facility. “Great substance abuse classes,” one representative reviewer wrote.


A limited number of private insurance plans are accepted, though Southeast Human Services does offer sliding scale fees. There is no charge for vocational rehabilitation or developmental disability case management services. According to CiteHealth, SHSC accepts both Medicare and Medicaid.


In 2016, there was an incident at the facility where an unaffiliated person (not a client) locked himself in a room of the facility with a staff member, and intended to kill himself or have the police kill him. The police responded to the situation, but the man was the only casualty of a self-inflicted injury.
