Description

Omegon Residential Treatment Center is a nonprofit, co-educational, dual-diagnosis facility which offers specialized treatment services for male and female adolescents, ages 12 to 17, who are experiencing serious emotional, social and/or behavioral disorders, combined with the abuse/dependency on mood-altering chemicals.  The Omegon treatment program consists of group, individual and family therapy in addition to health-oriented recreational, independent living skill development activities and special needs groups. Psychiatric, psychological, educational and family system evaluations guide the treatment program. Omegon offers two tracks for treatment services, depending on need and previous treatment history:
  • Our long term, 6-9 month program is designed for youth who have experienced multiple previous treatment interventions, including outpatient and in patient treatment, and require a longer-term integrative, therapeutic, and skill-building experience to intervene with their problems.
  • Our short term 3-4 month program is designed for youth whose chemical use and mental health history is not as extensive and have experienced more limited previous treatment interventions or for youth who have successfully completed treatment in the past, but due to relapse or worsening mental health require additional residential intervention.
Aftercare services and transitional planning are a part of the continuum of care which begins upon admission. Program participants receive ongoing contact with Case Managers or Resident Advisors for up to three months following discharge. Family therapy and participation in parent support groups are also available as a part of the aftercare services.

The facility accommodates 26 adolescents and features spacious living areas for therapeutic, educational and indoor recreation programming, as well as administrative functions.

Omegon Residential Treatment Center is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services and is a member of the Minnesota Council of Child Caring Agencies.
