Addiction Treatment for Women
The Heights Jackson
How We Can Help
The issue isn’t solely the abuse of alcohol, prescription pills, or illegal drugs. That’s why simply abstaining from these things only addresses part of the problem. We offer addiction treatment for women in Minnesota.
The Heights offers integrated treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues, as well as trauma recovery. Clients who receive treatment from programs offering the co-occurring treatment model experience some of the most effective results.
We Are Here For You
Admission to a residential treatment program can feel overwhelming, even a little frightening. That’s why our team of counselors, nurses, and administrative staff are committed to making sure that every client at The Heights feels welcome, safe, and cared for.
Just as we get to know each client, we invite you to learn more about our helpful and professional staff.
