Recovery Plus Adolescent Residential Facility Open House

Join us for tours and refreshments from 4-7 p.m. May 21 at the new 25-bed adolescent residential facility located on the CentraCare Health Plaza campus adjacent to Clara’s House. This facility will serve adolescents with alcohol, substance abuse and other mental health problems.

Approximately 16 percent (40.3 million people) of Americans age 12 and older meet the medical criteria for addiction — more than the number of people with cancer, diabetes or heart disease according to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.

To combat the growing problem of addictions in young people, St. Cloud Hospital Recovery Plus built the 25-bed residential facility adjacent to Clara’s House to serve adolescents with alcohol and substance abuse problems who also have co-occurring mental health issues. This is the only facility in Central Minnesota that provides dual treatment.

Services at the Recovery Plus Adolescent Residential Facility for young people include:

  • Primary care programming (4-6 weeks);
  • Long-term extended care services (3-6 months);
  • Access to mental health services including: mental health diagnostic screening, meeting with a psychiatric nurse practitioner, medication management as well as ongoing individual therapy with a psychotherapist;
  • Therapeutic arts and recreation therapy;
  • Family programming; and
  • Onsite schooling through District 742.

St. Cloud Hospital Recovery Plus has provided specialized inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient services for adolescents aged 12 to 18 years old with chemical addictions since 1977. Since then, more than 7,500 youth have used Recovery Plus adolescent services.
