Minnesota Model: An approach to drug and alcohol treatment pioneered by Hazelden in 1949, which marked a shift in understanding alcoholism as a multi-phasic illness and a disease separate from other mental illnesses, and stressed group treatment with other alcoholics. It follows a non-institutional tradition which treat alcoholics and addicts with dignity, and serves in large part as the jumping off point for many contemporary approaches to recovery.
