Why Should I Leave My City For Treatment?
It may seem overwhelming to consider leaving your home city for your 28 day stay at PRIDE Institute. But for many of our long distance alumni, leaving their home city was exactly what they needed. Often times, people in the throws of addiction struggle maintaining sober friends and finding sober activities, making it very difficult to stay motivated in a local treatment program. Our alumni members have shared with us that leaving their homes allowed them time to focus just on themselves and their road to recovery. Some were happy when family visited for the family program and others were happy they were far enough away for family not to visit.
Whatever your situation, PRIDE Institute offers a safe place for you to learn the tools you need to be successful in recovery wherever you chose to live. We do have alumni who end up moving to Minnesota permanently because of our strong LGBT recovery community. Still others move home with strong continuing care plans back in their home towns and are very successful. Both options work really well but it depends on what will work best for you!
When considering a gay and lesbian treatment program, please remember that not all LGBT friendly facilities are indeed friendly. It oftentimes depends on the other clients in the program. Don’t be afraid to ask questions; this is YOUR recovery and it needs to start with you being honest in your program.
Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport has flights from most airports in the country and we provide transportation to our facility from the airport. You take that first step and we will help guide the rest of the way.
