What it is

Counseling is used to address the underlying causes of an addiction.

The goal is to prepare you in recovery for life after addiction treatment, and then to help you sustain after rehabilitation.

Counseling isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Different approaches are more appropriate and effective for different people, depending on your age, type of addiction and the factors that contributed to their addiction.

What to expect

When you undergo counseling at Allina Health, you can expect individual or group treatment sessions with a licensed alcohol and drug counselor and/or a mental health therapist.

Therapy often decreases in frequency and duration as a person learns to cope with the causes of his or her addiction and to handle life’s stressors.

Good to know

  • To qualify for this program, a substance use disorder comprehensive assessment (formerly known as Rule 25) is necessary. Through this assessment, a referral specialist can help you identify the extent of your addiction and the treatment options that best suit your needs.
  • Most health insurance policies provide payment for addiction services. We will help you obtain authorizations during your admission process.
  • As a part of one of the largest health systems in our region, we have the resources to treat your whole person and to help you explore mental health, physical health and family relationships.
