Overview of Vinland National Center’s residential program

A Different Approach to Addiction Treatment

Vinland provides behavioral health services to individuals with cognitive impairments.

Since 1990, Vinland has provided drug and alcohol addiction treatment for people with cognitive disabilities. We were the first center in the country to design a treatment program to meet the unique needs of individuals living with brain injuries.

Vinland has developed a strong national reputation for providing top-quality integrative services to individuals with traumatic brain injuries, mental illness, learning disabilities, and/or other cognitive disabilities. It is well-known that a comprehensive approach like Vinland’s benefits individuals who have been unsuccessful in other treatment settings.

Our integrated treatment model provides conventional treatment services along with a wide variety of complementary care services like therapeutic exercise, nutrition, mental health education, and recreational activities.

Our Mission

Vinland National Center enables 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 for people with cognitive disabilities, mental health, and supportive housing.

Provide individualized treatment plans designed by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals.

Provide a comprehensive treatment plan that is committed to treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit.

Utilize multiple methods of instruction to accommodate different learning styles.

Promote an understanding that there are multiple barriers to success and a dedication to addressing all of those barriers.

Refer to post-treatment community resources to ensure that participants continue to receive the level of care they need after leaving treatment.
