Common Ground provides outpatient treatment programs designed to help individuals address issues with substance use disorder. Our programs are confidential, individualized, and help clients achieve goals they have set with their counselor. We offer gender-specific programs multiple days per week, in both the morning and the evening, to accommodate people with different schedule needs.
Each of our programs incorporate traditional treatment models, while incorporating new, evidence-based techniques to treating substance use disorder. Put simply? We meet you where you are, and use the best tools and strategies possible to help you find recovery.
We offer programs in Rochester, Winona and Red Wing, MN. Learn more about our individual programs below and contact our staff to set up an intake appointment.
