    I am interested in more info on how to get admitted to your facilities and what steps I need to take

    • Brandy September 17, 2018 Reply

      I would like to get into the residential patient treatment ASAP if there are any openings. My email and phone do not work at the moment but I will try to get a contact number for you if needed?!

        You can always get in right away to our Outpatient Treatment location at 675 Stinson Blvd. – 2nd floor, Minneapolis, MN 55413. You can call 763.479.3555 and ask for Outpatient Services or just walk in Mon – Fri from 8-4.
        They also conduct Chemical Dependency (also called Rule 25) Assessments there. For our residential facility in Loretto, you would need to talk with admissions to see about bed availability – same tel #: just ask for residential admissions. In order to get admitted to our residential location, you would need to additionally have a physical with a medical professional – and we have the form that you would need to get filled out. But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Our website also has all of the forms on line available for you to download once you get access.

    I work in a LTC facility in Minneapolis. We have a population of residents who have chemical dependency and mental illness diagnosis and we need some education to help us understand how to work with this group for our social workers and nurses. Wondering if you would have any recommendations for me??

      Hi Tracy – our apologies for the late response – it was stuck within a group of about 900 spam messages! We can do this for you if you’d like. We have an hour or 45 min powerpoint that talks about the work we do at Vinland and the specifics about working with cliets with cognitive deficits. Just give our Director of Business Development, Molly Gilbert, a call or email, and she will get this set up for you! You can reach her at 763.479.4525 or

      I hope this helps!

    I am interested in more info on how to get admitted to your facilities and what steps I need to take–I am working with a client who seems in a good place to benefit from Vinland’s programming

    • Molly Gilbert December 5, 2018 Reply

      Hi John, thanks for thinking of Vinland! There is an application and a Health & Physical form on the website you can dowmload – the H&P needs to be filled out by a medical professional. We also need a chemical dependency assessment/R25. These can all be faxed in to 763.479.4372. Your best bet beyond that is to call & ask to speak with Admissions directly (763.479.3555) about your client & advocate for them. We can often have a waitlist, so its best to be able to talk about the specifics of your client’s situation with someone on the Admission team. Those clients who are IV users and/or pregnant will be moved to the top of the waitlist. I will separately send you our informational packet via email so you have all the attachments. I hope this helps!

    Before I do all the paperwork I needed to know how much is the cost of the program

    • Molly Gilbert January 2, 2019 Reply

      Hi S., I just saw yr comment online asking about pricing for Vinland. Much depends on insurance, but usually its about $18,000 for a 30 day program, and most insurances tend to cover this.
      We offer mental health and a full nursing staff which usually runs at least $20-30k at most treatment centers.

      There are “12 Step Only” treatment programs out there like The Retreat in Wayzata, that do not offer mental health or nursing staff, so cost much less and still do a great job. It just depends on your level of need.

      Most people looking into Vinland have a history of head/brain injuries and/or PTSD & therefore the mental health component is a must to really deal with the issues our clients are facing.

      I hope this helps,

        My 27 yo son suffered a stroke at age 18 years old. He has deficits leftover with right sided weakness and difficulty in speech. He does comprehend fully. He has become dependent on marijuana. It controls his life. He has a great opportunity for a future and working for us but there has been such loss for him of the life he once dreamed of that the stroke took away and he has struggled to move on. He is in love with the life he had before the stroke. And marijuana numbs the pain.
        Do you think your program could benefit him?
        Thank you

          Hi Ann,

          Thanks so much for reaching out. When an addiction takes over and starts to run a person’s life, that person, if ready for help, can be very well served by a treatment program.
          When that person has suffered complications and disabilities due to a stroke, even more so could they be helped by Vinland.

          There are two requirements to be considered for Vinland: 1.) there exists a substance use disorder, and 2.) that there are some sort of cognitive or other disabilities. Our program tends to be slower and more repetitive as so many of our clients have memory or attention deficit issues – and, like your son, many have turned to street drugs to self-medicate some of these issues. Here is some basic info about us, below:

          Vinland National Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to full lives for people with disabilities. We enable individuals with multiple disabilities to live productive and fulfilling lives through a whole person approach that addresses the mind, body and spirit. Vinland’s programs include behavioral health services with a focus on substance abuse and supportive housing for people with cognitive disabilities.
          We are a fully- accredited substance abuse treatment center licensed by the state of Minnesota. We meet the complex needs of individuals with disabilities seeking treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. We understand that past trauma is common for people struggling with addiction, which is why we provide trauma-informed services aimed at reducing triggers and avoiding re-traumatization. We offer both Residential treatment in Loretto, MN., as well as an Outpatient treatment option, located in NE Minneapolis on Stinson Blvd. near Broadway, conveniently located on the bus line.

          Our programs are designed for:

          • Those who can benefit from a slower-paced, more individually –focused program.
          • People living with disabilities such as brain injury, developmental disability and/or physical disabilities.
          • Individuals dealing with simultaneous mental illnesses.
          • Those who have had difficulty succeeding in traditional chemical dependency treatment programs or those who have relapsed and need a new approach.
          We treat co-occurring disorders and offer fully integrated mental health services. Clients participate in mental health groups and meet one-on-one with licensed mental health professionals. When appropriate, clients meet in-house with our psychologists and psychiatrists.
          In addition, Vinland’s residential program is known for its outstanding Therapeutic Exercise Program. A safe, slow, gentle, supervised physical reconditioning program. All clients receive a pre-assessment to determine their current functional capacity. After the assessment, an exercise physiologist designs a personal program to improve their strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, posture and body mechanics. Many of our clients have issues related to chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries and/or traumatic brain injuries, which makes personalized programming a necessity.
          Situated on a hill overlooking Lake Independence in western Hennepin County, Vinland’s main campus encompasses 178 acres of restored prairie land, woods and shoreline. It is a rural setting conveniently located just 20 miles west of Minneapolis and 45 miles south of St. Cloud.
          Both Residential and Outpatient treatment at Vinland is intended for people with disabilities who are chemically dependent. We serve adults ages 18 and older. We offer assistance in arranging transportation to and from appointments at Vinland’s main campus.

          Just so you are Aware, all applicants to Vinland’s Residential Treatment Program need to complete and have forwarded to us a chemical dependency assessment, usually a Rule 25 assessment. Additionally, they need to submit Vinland’s Medical Screening Form (copy attached).

          Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or our Residential Intake Supervisor, Greg Chamberlin.

          Direct: 763-479-4553
          Fax: 763 479-4372

          Certainly give us a call Mon – Fri between 8-4 to talk with someone on our admissions/intake team and they will be able to further help you. That number for residential treatment is 763.479.3555.

          I have attached our information here. As mentioned above, he would need to get an assessment for his addiction – sometimes called a Rule 25 Assessment – and we offer those at our Outpatient Clinic in NE Minneapolis located at 675 Stinson Blvd. in Minneapolis, if he doesn’t have a recent one. You can reach our Outpatient Services directly at 763.479.4882. Tell them Molly sent you.

          Once you have a recent (within 35 days) chemical dependency/R25 Assessment and have submitted that along with the Medical Screening Form, depending on what admissions says when you chat with them, he would either be processed for admission or (more likely) be put on a wait list.

          I hope this helps!

    I’m looking for information on how to get into the residential impatient chemical health treatment. Is there a long waiting list? I’d like to get in as soon as possible!
    Thank you very much,

    • Molly Gilbert April 1, 2019 Reply

      Hi Ashley,

      Thanks for reaching out to Vinland. The first thing you should do is talk to our Intake/Admissions team. They can be reached at 763.479.3555 Mon. – Fri. 8 – 4. They will let you know if there is a waitlist & how long it might be. I will warn you that the wait list for women is usually longer than it is for men at our residential facility, but we would have immediate openings at our Outpatient location in NE Minneapolis. Call Outpatient services directly at 763.479.4881.

      If neither of these options work for you, we would be able to help refer you elsewhere in the community for help. Good for you for reaching out for help! Hang in there – it will be worth it.

    I already have my rule 25 done. I asked them to fax it to you from House of Charity. Please let me know when you receive it. My phone number is 612-865-1045. Thank you.

    • Molly Gilbert April 30, 2019 Reply

      You bet, Bryce – I have forwarded your message on to Greg Chamberlin, our Intake Supervisor. He can be reached directly at 763.479.4553 if one of his team doesn’t get to you first!

      Michael – your message has been sent to our Admissions Supervisor, Greg. He can be reached at 763.479.4553 as I know he is swamped today.

      Otherwise just call 763.479.3555 and anyone in Admissions can help you! Hang in there!

    I’m writing this on behalf of my son who is incarcerated and extremely interested in your program, he has done treatments before but was unable to retain the information and put it into practice in his life. Your cognitive program seems like the right place for him to not only him but myself as well after reading the information on your webpage. He has then an intravenous drug abuser for the last two-and-a-half to three years and also he has a undiagnosed brain injury, he believes that this is the reason that treatment hasn’t worked for him in the past and is eager to get into your program as soon as possible once he’s released from jail. Please contact me for more information or to let me know how to get him into your program.
    I can be reached at, 612 xxx-xxxx.
    I hope to hear from you soon and thank you in advance.

      Hi Debra,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to Vinland on behalf of your son. I hope you have had the chance to connect with our admissions team by now. If not, they can be reached Mon – Fri from 8-4 at 763.479.3555.
      I have cc’d our Intake Supervisor here, Greg Chamberlin, in case you have further questions. He could tell you what the wait list might look like for our residential program. Our Outpatient Program located in NE Minneapolis has immediate openings. You would simply need to call 763.479.3555 and ask for “Outpatient Services” to reach them.

      I’ve attached our admission forms required here. You would also need to have a chemical dependency assessment or “Rule 25” faxed to us at 763.479.4372. Once we have all three of these forms back is when your son could be considered for admission. Regardless, you would need to have a phone conversation with someone in our admissions office to determine whether you would be a fit for our program. I would encourage you to do this as soon as possible if you haven’t already.

      I hope this helps!
