Rediscover a happier you on your terms

Virtual addiction therapy gives you convenient access to the same level of high-quality care you’d expect in person with flexible options for your schedule.

Like in-person care, virtual addiction therapy is a safe space. Many people feel more comfortable opening up to therapists from home in their own environment.

We offer personalized care from licensed experts specializing in mental health and addiction therapy. You'll also have access to peer recovery support and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) during your recovery journey.   

  • Addiction therapy specialists help diagnose, treat and manage substance use disorders. They partner with you to create a recovery plan for your unique needs.

    Virtual addiction therapy includes individual and optional group sessions with a therapist dually licensed in both mental health and addiction. Individual sessions last 45 minutes and are available up to three times a week.

    Optional 90-minute group sessions are available up to three days a week.
  • Certified peer recovery support specialists provide education, social support, advocacy and mentoring. Peer recovery specialists are certified through the Minnesota Certification Board.

How to qualify for virtual addiction therapy

You’ll complete a substance use disorder assessment to qualify for virtual addiction care. You’ll answer a few questions to help your referral specialist understand the extent of your addiction and find the best treatments for your needs.

Virtual addiction therapy might be right for you if you: 

  • feel like drinking or drug use gets in the way of living your life
  • are looking for a therapist who understands addiction
  • can’t attend traditional outpatient substance use treatment services that meet in person 12 or more hours per week
  • want access to addiction treatment virtually
  • want to cut down or quit substance use using evidence-based therapeutic interventions
  • have tried other recovery programs and are looking for something different

Use a computer or a mobile device with a camera and an internet connection.
