Providence St. Peter Chemical Dependency Center has been a leading treatment provider since 1986. The center functions as a department of Providence St. Peter Hospital under the direction of our medical director, board certified in addiction and psychiatry.
The staff of certified chemical dependency professionals is committed to helping individuals whose lives have been affected by the harmful use of alcohol and other drugs. We offer services to diagnose and treat substance use disorders and provide ongoing support throughout the recovery process. We have programs for adults and adolescents, as well as services for problem gambling and tobacco cessation.
Our philosophy is based on the principle that each person’s needs are unique; services must be designed in a way that will support that person and sustain his or her recovery. Our treatment model incorporates the nationally recognized American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) patient placement criteria.
We encourage family involvement and use evidence-based curriculum that includes various components, ranging from education and physical wellness, to vocational goals.
