About This Location

Dual Diagnosis Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Our programs are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services under 245G. We treat chemical dependency and mental health diagnoses with an integrated approach.

Our programs are designed for individuals of all ages experiencing the personal impact and negative consequences from alcohol or substance abuse. Additionally, people may suffer from specific emotional difficulties such as

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • mood disorders
  • personality disorders
  • other mental health diagnoses

We understand the relationship between substance dependence or abuse and mental health issues, and offer a dual-diagnosis/integrated treatment approach in all of our outpatient services. Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselors, Mental Health Professionals, and Mental Health Practitioners work together to assist patients in navigating through complex addiction and mental health concerns while developing a strong recovery plan.

If an addiction affects you or someone you love, contact St. Cloud Hospital to find the treatment you need. We strive to ensure our clients’ recovery, plus show them the benefits of a chemical-free lifestyle. CentraCare has provided specialized addiction services since 1977.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
