    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!

      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!

      Hi Kalina,

      Because Vinland is such a specialized program, we generally (almost always) have a waitlist that is several weeks to a couple of months for women. However, once you have all of your required application materials in, and it has been determined through an intake phone conversation that you are a good ‘fit’ for our program, that can change overnight. Someone could leave early or abscond from the program, and beds open up. We then need to be able to reach you on the waitlist, and often people don’t answer their phones or respond to voicemails telling them that a bed is now available, so the ‘waitlist’ can be whittled down rapidly.

      The documents we have to have prior to that phone conversation is the Application Form (attached), Medical Screening Form (attached), and a drug/alcohol assessment, often known in the state of MN as a Rule 25 Assessment. If you need to get one of those, our Outpatient location in NE Minneapolis can usually get you in within 24 hours. You simply need to call them at 763. 479.4881 to schedule that appointment. No, our outpatient program does not have lodging attached to it – often our outpatient clients will be set up with other lodging options we help them obtain while in our residential treatment program.

      Once we have these three application documents, you will need to speak with anyone on our admissions/intake team at 763.470.3555 and they can then let you know their time guesstimate. As I said, those numbers can change in your favor overnight, so the sooner you get these materials in, the better!

      We hope this helps,

    Hi Stephanie,

    Because admissions and discharges are a highly fluid situation, you will always want to talk with someone in admissions to get answers to this question. They can be reached at 763.479.3555.

    As a rule, we generally have at least a 2-3 week wait list for women, as we only have 12 beds out of 61 available to female-identifying persons. This list can sometimes grow to several months because of the limited number of beds, however, considering many on the wait list suddenly being unreachable or having changed their minds since they first applied, can mean the list can whittle down quickly. When people don’t answer their phones when a bed becomes available (or respond to our voicemails), we move along to the next candidate on our list.
    The only complication with this process arises when we have someone who is pregnant or an I.V. user apply – as per state law, they have to be moved to the top of all waitlists.

    As you can see, this is a complex answer to a simple question, but suffice it to say your best bet is to have your Rule 25/Chemical Dependency Assessment faxed to Vinland at 763.479.4372 along with your application and Vinland Medical Screening Form (both available on our website – – under ‘Admissions Forms’) if you are serious about being considered for admission to Vinland. Once we have those 3 forms, and only then, are you considered for admission with a place ‘in line’, if you will.

    I hope this helps!

    I am needing to see what your process is to get into one of your houses? Do you have one in St Paul? I am on SSDI . Sustained another Concussive injury and a living situation like a lodge with own bedroom would be nice. Do you have a person that can answer alot of questions ? I submitted the initial form .

    • Molly Gilbert September 18, 2019 Reply

      Hi Bud,
      Our Lodges Coordinator is Gina Chamberlin & she can be reached at 763.479.4898 or at: Because it is considered to be *permanent* sober housing, we don’t often have openings, but she can let you know how things are looking for potential openings.
      Our lodges locations are only located in Crystal, MN – but they are right on the bus line.

      Hope this helps!

    I am an LPCC looking to get some co-occurring CEUs for a requirement for my current counseling position. I’m wondering how many CEUs your recorded webinars are and if there’s a cost involved (and what that would be).

    Thank you!

    • Molly Gilbert October 15, 2019 Reply

      Hi Marit,

      We have a number of webinars offering free CEU’s currently listed on our website: > News & Events > Webinars. Instructions are listed there in order to obtain a CEU certificate after completing. Otherwise, if you would like to get on our mailing list to be notified of our annual CEU event (usually held in late summer/early fall), just fill out the ‘Contact Us’ request & we will add you to the invite list.

    I’m trying to send the forms to Greg Chamberlin but where do I send them? I’m filling them out on my phone so I need an email address to send the filled out pdf to.

    Hi I’m curious how long I have to wait for a counselor to call me from there. My paperwork was faxed around Oct.28th. and on Nov.7th I called and a lady from admissions told to expect a call from a counselor but I still haven’t heard anything back. J.

      Hi Julie –

      We are so sorry to hear this!

      Part of the problem *might* be that we only have 12 beds out of 61 that are for women, but still – the status of this process needs to be communicated to you.

      We have forwarded your message onto our Admissions Supervisor, Greg, and asked him to reach out to you today. He can be reached directly at: 763.479.4553 or
      Mon. – Thurs 7:30am-5pm.

      Just in case you didn’t know, we need to have three application papers in prior to being able to make a decision:

      1. the Vinland Application Form
      2. Vinland’s Medical Screening Form (both available on our website & attached to this email) and
      3. a recent drug/alcohol assessment – often called a Rule 25 within the state of Minnesota.

      Once we have all three documents, only then are we able to move an application forward into the queue. A phone interview is part of the application process, so maybe that is what you are waiting on?

      We hope this helps!
