Residential Chemical Health

Located in Loretto, Minnesota
20 miles west of Minneapolis

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

If you have struggled to keep up with group material or assignments at other addiction treatment centers, Vinland Center could be a better program for you. Our addiction rehab program is designed for individuals with memory issues, learning disabilities, and/or other cognitive impairments.

Vinland provides drug and alcohol treatment for adults with cognitive impairments. Our staff members strive to make all possible accommodations for cognitive deficits and adaptations for individual learning styles.

Vinland is a fully-accredited substance abuse treatment center licensed by the State of Minnesota. We use evidenced-based approaches to addiction treatment. Our staff are highly-trained and licensed professionals.

At our residential treatment program, we provide integrated mental health services. For individuals struggling with a dual diagnosis of substance abuse and mental health issues, integrated treatment provides better recovery outcomes.

Services for Residential Program

The following services are offered as part of our Residential Chemical Health Program
Men's & Women's Programs

Separate treatment programs for men and women.

One-on-One Counseling

Clients work individually with case managers to ensure that individual needs are appropriately met.

Group Sessions

Group topics vary, and discussions are conducted at a moderate pace.

Mental Health

Psychologist, psychiatrist, and mental health professionals provide on-site and integrated mental health services. Integrating substance abuse treatment and mental health services provides better recovery outcomes for individuals struggling with a dual diagnosis.

Therapeutic Exercise

An exercise physiologist designs a personalized 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 injury, which makes personalized programs a necessity.

Mindfulness Meditation

Developed in partnership with the University of Minnesota's Center for Spirituality & Healing, Vinland offers an adapted mindfulness meditation program. Studies prove that meditation improves recovery outcomes.

Trauma-Informed Services

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.

Adaptive Yoga

Yoga improves overall physical and mental health. Groups are led by licensed adaptive yoga instructors.

Music Therapy

Research has shown that music therapy can improve responsiveness to medication, lower blood pressure, and alleviate depression. At Vinland, clients listen, play, and respond to live music. No prior musical experience is necessary to see the benefits of music therapy.

Family Program

Vinland offers a weekend educational series as a resource for people who care about someone with a substance abuse issue. The program is not considered a replacement for family counseling, but rather it is a source of information about substance abuse, cognitive disabilities, and family relationships. Research has shown that recovery is stronger and more effective when family members are educated and involved in the treatment process.

Peaceful Location

Vinland's main campus in Loretto provides a peaceful and rural setting that is an ideal location for the recovery process. Situated on a hill over-looking Lake Independence, our main campus has 61 beds, separate men's and women's living areas, and a recently remodeled fitness center. The grounds include multiple walking trails accessible year-round, a basketball court, and several gardens.
