About Us

Our mission is to assist men, women and teens in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life-controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

We offer effective and affordable programs throughout Minnesota with campuses in Minneapolis, Brainerd, Duluth, Rochester and Buffalo. We have a broad spectrum of treatment and recovery programs: Outpatient (Telehealth and In-person), Licensed Residential (7-90 days), Long Term Recovery Program (12 months), Teen Residential (6-12 months) and Ongoing Recovery and Alumni Services, allowing us to effectively serve individuals with a broad spectrum of addiction issues… from those seeking treatment for the first time to those who have been struggling with addiction for many years.


Our Core Values

At Our Centers.

In all of our programs, we focus on our clients’ recovery from addiction. In order to do this, our centers foster an environment of love, trust and respect. Our staff works alongside clients to uncover the root causes of their addictive tendencies and to create new patterns to replace old ones. 


In the broader communities of Minnesota, our prevention pr­­­­ogram strives to inform people about the drug situation in their area as well as the dangers of using drugs by presenting in classrooms and hosting community forums. We also keep long-term clients connected to our community by singing as a choir at churches and volunteering at local nonprofits.

Legal Community.

In the legal community, we advocate on behalf of our clients, working with probation officers and partnering with government, political and law enforcement officials. Many officials participate in forums – raising community awareness. In jails and prisons, we strive to help those struggling with addiction find the best recovery solution whether at MnTC or elsewhere.
