Located in the riverside town of Hastings, Minn., Cochran Recovery Services (CRS) offers a comprehensive suite of programs for individuals seeking recovery from substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo a comprehensive psychiatric assessment. From there, enrollees receive an individualized treatment plan that addresses mental health needs, medication, and family involvement. There is no standard program length; duration of treatment is based upon each client’s unique needs. One client did report staying longer than 90 days. Many programs include medication management.
While detox services are available to individuals ages 12 and up, participants must be at least 18 years of age in order to enroll in the residential recovery program. CRS also maintains transitional housing facilities for adult men, many of whom are homeless. The program offers daily living skills counseling.
CRS strives to provide care that is holistic in nature and addresses mental, physical, and emotional health. The center utilizes 12-step methodology and provides mental health counseling for all participants. Trauma informed care (TIC), a newly introduced treatment modality, is being incorporated into individualized treatment plans for adults. A robust wellness program offered there includes fitness activities, on-site yoga classes, and nutritional counseling.
CRS employs a multidisciplinary staff including a psychotherapist, licensed addiction counselors, a case manager, a registered nurse, and a yoga instructor with a master of social work.

Another alum noted that the counselors and staff were strengths of the program, but disliked the extended periods of time spent inside. “There is not enough outside time,” they wrote. “The program is a good place if you want to be sober.”

Upon arriving I was immediately yelled at by the so called nurse for violating HIPAA for looking in the window.”
