Residential Treatment Center

Ministry Behavioral Health Residential Treatment Center in Stevens Point offers comprehensive drug or alcohol dependency treatment in a residential setting. Chemical dependency is a treatable illness and people can and do recover. It is not a lack of moral weakness; it is not a lack of character. It is an illness with a complex array of signs and symptoms.

Accredited and caring staff members are on-site 24 hours a day and include a Board Certified Addictionologist, Psychiatrist, Psychologists, Licensed Psychotherapists, Certified AODA Counselors, and Chaplain. They provide guidance during and after patient stays, which generally lasts 28 days.

An initial assessment is conducted to formulate an individualized treatment plan based on patient needs and strengths.

The program includes:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Education
  • Family therapy
  • Scheduled recreational activities
  • Introduction to Twelve Step philosophy
  • Access to external programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, church and other support services
  • Discharge planning
  • Collaboration with family and social worker
  • Psychological consultation
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Pastoral care
  • Smoking cessation support and supplements

We believe that tough times are made easier using the group concept and we encourage interaction and the creation of friendships that can last a lifetime.
Our treatment center offers 15 guest beds, with two guests per room, and features a large kitchen and dining area to optimize group interaction and team building. Recreational activities in and around the Stevens Point area are available to enjoy as a group. We also have on site laundry and meeting areas, perfect for group discussions or just a fun game of cards.
