In all of our programs, we focus on our clients' recovery from addiction. In order to do this, our centers foster an environment of love, trust and respect. Our staff works alongside clients to uncover the root causes of their addictive tendencies and to create new patterns to replace old ones.

In the broader communities of Minnesota, our prevention program strives to inform people about the drug situation in their area as well as the dangers of using drugs by presenting in classrooms and hosting community forums. We also keep long-term clients connected to our community by singing as a choir at churches and volunteering at local nonprofits.

In the legal community, we advocate on behalf of our clients, working with probation officers and partnering with government, political and law enforcement officials. Many officials participate in forums - raising community awareness. In jails and prisons, we strive to help those struggling with addiction find the best recovery solution whether at MnTC or elsewhere.

We offer professional trainings through out the state of MN. The trainings consist of many different topics and are accredited for CEU hours.

Mission statement

Our mission is to assist men, women and teens in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life-controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
