Located in the St. Paul suburb of Woodbury, Minnesota, Valhalla Place offers outpatient treatment and medication-assisted treatment for chemical dependency. Named for the mythological hall where slain warriors prepared for the final battle between good and evil, Valhalla Place helps its clients battle addiction. For those who want to get off heroin or other opiates, medication management and withdrawal support using Suboxone and methadone is available. Depending on the needs of the individual, the programs offer different levels of care. Through a mix of CBT-based talk therapy, medication and peer support, the struggles that plague clients can be fully addressed.
Treatment and Staff
Valhalla Place offers what it calls “high intensity” and “low intensity” outpatient services. Prior to entering the program, the client undergoes an initial evaluation that is used to determine which level of care is the best fit. In addition to therapy, medication management for opiate withdrawal is available.
Both the outpatient treatment options include a mix of group, individual and family therapy. The 12-week “high intensity” program (IOP) meets three times a week, for three hours at a time, while participants in the low intensity program usually attend two three-hour group sessions a week, for no less than a total of 36 hours. The low intensity option is typically used as a step down from IOP.
Evidence-based therapies such as CBT and DBT are used throughout the program. Groups are kept at a decent size, with 10 to 15 clients at a time. Gender-specific groups are available, focusing on topics such as relapse prevention, anger management, introduction to the 12 steps and coping skills. Clients have individual and family therapy (if applicable) once a week—each session is one hour long.
When it comes to opiate addiction, this facility uses medications such as methadone and Suboxone to help clients safely go through withdrawal. After their assessment, methadone clients come in for a daily dosing session that costs $16 per session. Suboxone can be prescribed as a take-home medication or as part of a full treatment program, depending on the needs of the individual. In addition to receiving medication, the client is required to attend weekly individual counseling sessions at no additional cost. The length of time spent in this program depends on the client’s rehabilitation goals.
The staff includes several registered nurses, a nurse practitioner and CSACs.
Valhalla offers a Driving With Care program as an educational service for those who have been convicted of a DUI. The classes satisfy the requirements of court-ordered treatment, while helping educate clients about the dangers of drinking and driving. The level one DUI class is a six session, 12-hour program, while the level two class offers a 12 week, 24-hour program.
Valhalla Place is a great program for those needing medication-assisted treatment. While many facilities simply offer medication as a way to come off opiates, this program includes weekly therapy to support the client. As far as the outpatient programs go, they offer two programs, both with individualized care. Overall, this facility is both an affordable and reliable recovery resource.
