While in residential treatment

Most everything you’ll need is included in your stay at Beauterre. Your room is furnished with queen-sized beds and all bedding is provided. All meals and snacks are provided by the Bistro staff, as well as any books or materials you may need for your care plan.

Yes, you can. We also offer a number of extracurricular activities on site, so even if you don’t bring your own things, there are many choices offered.

The fastest answer is, it depends.

The fuller answer is that we securely store your cell phone upon your arrival. Then through ongoing assessment, cell phone usage is determined on an individual basis. If it is determined that having your cell phone is not in the best interest of your recovery process, we still have phones on site that you can use to make any calls.

Yes. We do have in person visitation at the facility. Visitation is on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm for all patients. We also have visitation 2:00-4:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays. To balance the number of visitors on campus, some patients will have weekend visitation hours on Saturdays while others will have their visitation hours on Sundays.

You will not be able to work at the facility. This is a time that you are taking to focus on yourself and your recovery without the distractions of day-to-day life.

Yes, as long as it is done in the designated smoking areas.

Wednesday 7:00-8:30, Saturday 2:00-4:00, Sunday 2:00-4:00. As noted earlier, all patients can receive visitors on Wednesdays and either Saturday or Sunday. Once you are admitted to Beauterre, your care team will ensure you know which day is your allotted visitation day.

While exploring treatment options

We accept most types of commercial insurance.  We are unable to accept Medicaid/Medicare at Beauterre. If you are interested in programs that accept Medicaid, we encourage you to explore the programs offered by our parent organization, Meridian Behavioral Health. You can learn more here.

We are solely a residential treatment center at Beauterre. If you are interested in outpatient programs, we encourage you to explore the programs offered by our parent organization, Meridian Behavioral Health. You can learn more here.

Detox refers to the process of safely managing withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking drugs or alcohol. We can assist in managing some withdrawals at Beauterre. As with many aspects of our recovery care, we create an individual plan that keeps our patients’ well-being and safety as a top priority.

A stay in residential treatment at Beauterre can be anywhere from nine days to 40 days, depending on what is evaluated to be clinically necessary for your recovery. Before you arrive, our admissions team will ensure you and your loved ones know what to expect.

We treat all sorts of substance abuse addiction including alcohol, meth use, crack cocaine, abuse of prescribed medications, opiates, inhalants and more. 

Determining whether outpatient or residential treatment is a decision made on an individual basis, because each person is unique and their recovery journey will look different. It is worth reflecting on whether you would benefit from stepping away from your everyday life to focus on treatment. If you’d like, we also offer a self-guided assessment to explore if you have a substance abuse concern. Part of our admissions process includes a formal assessment to determine if residential treatment is an appropriate step, so you can reach out to us at any time of day to start the conversation.

Most of our patients come from Minnesota. Being so close to Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Rochester and Mankato means that you can step away from day to day life, while still staying connected to loved ones nearby. That being said, we also have patients come to our facility from Wisconsin, Iowa and as far as California and Florida.

You are welcome to see for yourself what the Beauterre experience is all about. Call us to schedule a tour to see the facility, meet staff and learn more about the programs.

Beauterre is licensed in the state of Minnesota to provide substance abuse treatment only to patients who are 18 and over.
