 Lake Country Associates (LCA) SUD services are designed to provide Low to High Intensity Outpatient services for adults.  Evidence-based research shows Motivational Interviewing increases higher recovery progress when moving through the Stages of Change.

Our program uses Person-Centered Treatment Planning, which allows clients to have an active role in self-identifying their goals, while clinicians build on the client’s strengths when treatment planning.  

Our program includes urine or oral fluid analysis.  Showing accountability and being honest about vulnerabilities are key concepts to implementing recovery values in one’s life.

Recovery is individualized with our SUD services. We offer services to help the whole person, while also promoting a therapeutic, safe environment to heal and grow.

Family Involvement:

Family involvement is an important part of the recovery process.  We encourage open communication between clients, counselors, and family members to identify issues and promote healing.  Opportunities for participation in sessions are available by appointment and every six weeks during group’s Family Day.

Levels of Outpatient Treatment:

LCA’s SUD services are designed to provide Low to High Intensity Outpatient services for adults.   

Low Intensity Services – One 3-hour group session and at least one individual session weekly. 

Medium Intensity Services – Two 3-hour groups sessions and at least one individual session weekly.

High Intensity Services – Three 3-hour group sessions and at least one individual session weekly. 

Services are paid for by Minnesota insurance plans, private insurance, county funding, and self-pay.  A sliding fee scale is available.
