Overview of Vinland Center
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.

    Hi Mandy,

    We have a specific process to be considered for Vinland which includes filling out our Medical Screening Form, located on our website under the Admissions Forms section.
    That, along with your Rule 25 assessment, needs to be faxed into Vinland (our fax # is: 763.479.4372 – or, you can scan and email it to either of our email addresses, attached). Then you will need to have a phone conversation with anyone on our Admissions team in order for them to help determine if you are a fit for our program, and if so, how long it might be before a bed becomes available. Our admissions staff is available Mon – Fri., 8-4 at 763.479.3555.
    Otherwise, much depends on whether you are pregnant or an I.V. user, as those individuals automatically get moved to the front of the list, by state law.
    I am cc’ing our Admissions Supervisor, Greg, here, in case you have further questions.

    Hang in there, and thanks for reaching out!
