The Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment has been serving the community of Duluth, Minnesota since 1961. It began as a group of concerned citizens who came together to form the Center on Problem Drinking; now known as the Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment (CADT), a network of facilities that offer a full continuum of treatment for adults dealing with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. Options include detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, with gender-specific sober living homes available as well.
Accommodations and Food
The primary facility has a detox unit with 24 beds for medically managed withdrawal and 16 beds for residential treatment. Clients share a room with at least one other resident and all come furnished with basic necessities including dressers, single beds and closet space. Clients are provided with three meals a day in the on-site cafeteria. Menus are developed by a nutritionist and most dietary restrictions can be accommodated.
Treatment and Staff
After an initial assessment and intake, clients work with staff members to develop individualized treatment plans. Those in withdrawal can undergo medical detox on-site for up to seven days before continuing on to primary care, which lasts no more than 30 days. Treatment consists of individual and group therapy using evidence-based practices. For clients struggling with opiate addiction, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is also an option.
The CADT approach incorporates the 12-step philosophy and therapeutic modalities like DBT, CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Gender-specific and specialized groups are available for trauma, chronic relapse and mood disorders. Treatment also includes family therapy, if needed. For clients with a dual diagnosis, additional medical and psychiatric nursing services, including medication management, are available.
CADT offers several aftercare options, including an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), outpatient care and three sober living homes. There is also a specialized program for outpatient adolescent treatment called Woodland Hills.
The organization also provides treatment for gambling addiction, as well as help with health insurance enrollment and low cost housing. Drug and alcohol assessments for court purposes on a walk-in basis at the main facility.
Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment offers a solid inpatient program for addiction recovery that combines evidence-based therapy and MAT for those struggling with opiate withdrawal. Those looking for no nonsense treatment will be well-served here. Clients who are struggling with co-occurring disorders will also find competent care and support in this safe and stable environment.
