ABOUT COCHRAN RECOVERY SERVICES

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. Originally established in 1974 as a detox center, the nonprofit organization now also provides residential treatment, wellness programming, trauma-informed therapy, and sober living support. Many of the clients served have recently been released from prison or are unemployed. Treatment of co-occurring disorders is available.

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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

CRS is situated within a large German-style house surrounded by woods. Three meals and snacks are provided each day. Transportation is available for clients on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Laundry and vending machines are on-site, and guests are allowed during Sunday visiting hours.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Nine alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com to date gave CRS mixed reviews. Four alumni rated the facility only one and two out of five stars in categories such as treatment effectiveness and meals and nutrition, and criticized the facility for poor treatment from staff, faulty accommodations, and bad food and nutrition. Alum Bri wrote: “I learned NOTHING nobody gives care about you, the food stinks its dirty and over crowded and TONS of down time.” A fifth alum, while not providing any ratings, complained about the facility’s unclear costs.

Three other alumni, however, rated CRS more positively, with four- and five-star ratings for the staff’s level of experience and training, holistic treatment options, and treatment effectiveness. Alum GMW credited the program as flexible. Alum Karen described it as a “life changing process” and reported feeling like the counselors really cared about her. 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.”

Seven reviewers on Google rated CRS an average two out of five stars to date, with one rating it five stars, one four stars, and five only one star.[1] Positive reviews described ARC as “very helpful” and “spiritual,” but most reviewers complained of poor treatment from staff. a negative one wrote: “Let’s just say this is the rudest staff I have ever come across. Upon arriving I was immediately yelled at by the so called nurse for violating HIPAA for looking in the window.”

FINANCING

CRS accepts medical insurance, though the website doesn’t specify which kind. Citehealth and Healthgrove report that state insurance is accepted. One Best-rehabs.com survey respondent reported receiving financial support through Minnesota’s Rule 25 and The Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund.

  • This place is an awful detox center. It’s dirty, uncomfortable and the nurse was extremely rude. They basically do nothing. You show up and all they do is check your vitals every so often. It’s awful. I’d never recommend this place.

  • I just got out from a weekend at this place. I can tell you first hand my experience.. Beds are uncomfortable, pillows flat...no place other than TV room to go to other than your room. Sitting on my bed or pacing the floor was the norm there. One nurse was very nasty to me the whole time. The food was okay, but not good. I would not recommend this place to any loved one.
    Thank you.

  • I am a recovering alcoholic with a year clean tomarrow( no thanks to this place). During my drinking I was in the detox facility three times, and I have never seen such an uncaring, nasty place. I received NO medical attention, except when they took my vials which were 120 bpm heart rate for 99 percent of my stays...Detoxifying as a chronic alcoholic can be deadly, but no one cared. I was also told by a nurse that I brought this on myself. Please, even if your loved one needs detox DON'T send them to hastings. I will be filling a complaint. I feel so bad for the people suffering in there. This place should be shut down!

  • I would not be here to write this review if it were not for the staff at Cochran House. The program is rigid but not as rigid as many other programs. If you are truly seeking to escape the madness of addiction, you can do it here.
    This place is so full of it they don't tell you nothing about your funding and they always try to get you in grh just for the money l was not told about my discharge day which I had to call my insurance company to find out my graduation but on Wednesday my so called counselor had a supposedly a one on one and then had the nerve to say how many times have we met, l though that was the icing on the cake l honestly seen him one time and I think he did that because it was time for my graduation they were up to trying to get a extend my stay there behind my back again because they never told me my discharge date l say to anyone who wants treatment don't go there please please please don't go there...

  • This place is garbage. I left the program early. The food their is trash to. They don't supply a decent breakfast. The councilors were decent but the rest of the staff is just terrible. Their was a hole in the roof causing leaks whenever it rained. I saw their Dr their they didn't put my bill threw my insurance so now I have a $4500 bill. They had a faulty fire alarm while I was there and it would randomly go off. I'm pretty sure if a health inspector or any state official went threw their it would be shut down. I highly highly recommend never going to that place.

  • The building's heat does not turn off in the winter. It will be 80 degrees year round. There is mold in the building ... The counselors are very good at their jobs and do care about the individuals. However the business model is strictly about money. You will "successfully complete treatment" when your financing runs out, be that 7 days or six months, regardless of how long you truly need to be treated.
