Treatment for addictions and mental health issues are combined into a single personalized treatment plan. You also have access to the extensive medical and psychiatric services at Mayo Clinic, if needed.
  • Expertise and experience. A psychiatrist who's board certified in addictions leads your treatment team and coordinates your care. You'll work closely with a licensed alcohol and drug addiction counselor or a licensed clinical social worker, and nursing staff who specialize in addiction treatment. Mayo Clinic sees an average of almost 4,000 patients a year with alcohol use disorder.
  • Patient-staff ratio. The ratio of one counselor or therapist for every four to five patients ensures that you receive the individualized approach you need to accomplish your treatment goals.
  • Treatment offerings. Mayo Clinic's continuum of addiction services includes a state-of-the-art 30-day intensive program with on-site residence. In this highly confidential and professional setting, patients form a small community and receive 24/7 support in establishing their sobriety and developing recovery skills.
