About Pride Institute
Pride Institute offers an exclusive LGBTQ+ recovery program in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. They’re a national leader in addiction treatment and treat clients all across the U.S. Pride Institute uses evidence-based therapies to address substance misuse, past trauma, sexual health, and mental health in an inclusive and accepting environment. The program's goal is to give participants the knowledge, abilities, and resources they need to pursue long-term recovery. During treatment, Pride Institute includes case management support, around-the-clock nursing care, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with 12-Step facilitation. Each client works with a primary counselor to develop a treatment strategy that is specific to their needs.
Pride Institute recognizes the blockages between LGBTQ+ people and quality treatment for addiction, mental health, and sexual health. Clients will be supported with a team who embrace cultural competency. They offer daily group therapy and peer support groups like SMART recovery, 12-Step meetings, and Recovery Dharma. Pride Institute welcomes clients as they are, requiring no explanations. Peers encompass this idea too, as everyone in treatment is in the LGBTQ+ community.
The average length of stay at Pride Institute is 25 days, but the program can go up to 90 days. Clients meet weekly with a masters-level therapist for 1:1 therapy. Family therapy occurs 1-2 times during treatment, if desired. In addition to residential treatment, Pride also offers partial hospitalization (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Their PHP provides housing for clients in an 8-bed home 3 miles away from Pride Institute. PHP runs Monday–Friday for 6+ hours a day. In IOP, clients can attend morning or evening groups Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Care also goes online, with Telehealth programming offered by Pride Institute for even greater flexibility.
