What it is

As opioid deaths and overdoses continue to rise in our region, Allina Health opened the Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) in spring 2018.

The goal of the OTP is total rehabilitation for patients. The program offers medication-assisted treatment primarily in the form of suboxone, and also methadone, to help patients wean off opioids.

What to expect

The typical length of stay for patients is 21-28 days. OTP patients participate in broader addiction programming for hospitalized patients, including:

  • 24-hour nursing care and medical management for seizure or withdrawal symptoms
  • medication-assisted treatment primarily in the form of suboxone (and to a lesser degree, methadone) to help patients wean off of opioids
  • treatment and programs offered by a team that includes an addiction medicine physician, internal medicine physician, a psychiatrist, registered nurses, licensed alcohol and drug counselors and psychologists
  • skills-based group therapy
  • group and individual therapy focused on mental health and chemical dependency
  • education on topics such as mindfulness, trauma, medication management and nutrition
  • programs like yoga, spirituality sessions, and pet, recreation, occupational and music therapy
  • coordinated care with other medical and mental health specialists as needed

Patients will be connected to ongoing detoxification treatment in outpatient settings upon leaving the hospital. Whether patients are in hospital or outpatient settings, we’ll connect them to providers who are licensed in administering drugs like suboxone and methadone to help with withdrawal.

Good to know

Before patients are admitted, they have to complete a comprehensive chemical dependency assessment through our program or in an outpatient or county setting. Community members may call 763-236-4506 to get admitted to the program.
