Professional Counseling Centers


cheap rehabs delano minnesotaThe Basics

With locations in Delano, Minneapolis and Buffalo, Minnesota, Professional Counseling Centers are outpatient behavioral health facilities that provide treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders. Both standard and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are available for court-ordered and self-referred clients.

Treatment and Staff

Before treatment begins, clients undergo an initial intake and assessment so that staff members can develop an individualized treatment plan. The standard outpatient track is typically 90 hours total: 80 spent in group therapy and 10 spent in individual sessions. The IOP meets for a total of 40 hours a week with variable program lengths; similarly, one-on-one time with counselors may vary depending on each client’s needs.

In both cases, programs are rooted in evidence-based practices including CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI) with additional support for clients with co-occurring disorders. Clients are also required to participate in a 12-step program as part of treatment.

Staff consists of Master’s and PhD-level LADCs and psychologists.


In addition to the above, the facility also offers support for clients seeking housing while in the IOP by placing them in local sober living homes. These programs are generally limited to men who are homeless or in an unsafe living situation. Eligibility can be determined by completing a Rule 25 assessment. Other available programs include a relapse prevention track which can be taken as a form of aftercare. Clients meet for a total 48 hours though the specifics may be individualized based on each client’s need.

Those with DUI/DWIs charges can attend a range of programs including state-certified level I and II treatment, as well as driver’s education classes and chemical dependency evaluations. More specialized is an intensive supervised probation program that is the only one of its kind in the county. All participants must have four or more DUI/DWI’s or similar court-orders be invited and go through an initial orientation.

In Summary

In all, Professional Counseling Centers offers well-rounded and individualized outpatient treatment at a variety of locations in the Greater Minneapolis area. Programs use evidence-based practices in conjunction with 12-step support and both self-referred and court-ordered clients are welcome to attend. For those in the area seeking flexible and affordable care, Professional Counseling Centers is a valuable resource.

  1. Dr. Schlutter on

    I’m Dr. Schlutter and the above is inaccurate in a number of ways. I’ve never portrayed myself as being from Harvard, and I’m far from delusional. Many who actually know me see that I do not staff the clinics for money but for proper staffing. DHS reviewers have complimented the clinics and me, indicating that we should go around and help other clinics be in compliance with 245g. I pay off no one. Someone is obviously quite bitter, and has decided to seek revenge in this manner.
    My credentials are as follows: PhD in clinical psychology, LP as licensed psychologist in this state, MAC master addiction counselor through NAADAC, CCDPD co-occurring chemical dependency professional diplomate, BDFE board certified forensic examiner, and ABDA American Board of Disability Analysts Fellow.

  2. Dr Schlutter is a mad scientist as she is called by her collegues. They say that she has no business in a field where you have to put your ego aside, and apparently she has a hard time doing just that, If you look at her background and credentials you will see that she is no Harvard gal although she likes to portrait that. Its not cute and its not funny, this woman is delusional and cannot see past the dollar signs. She has proven this time and time again. Not sure who she pays off but dig deep, she should have been shut down a long time ago.
