Pride Institute is in network with most major insurance companies, but each policy can be different. The admissions staff will help by contacting your insurance company directly to determine your eligible benefits. If you don’t have insurance we’ll work with you to find ways to pay for treatment. Please see our Payment & Insurance page for more details.
The first step is to call 888-616-5031 and talk with one of our mental health admissions counselors. An initial assessment will help them to determine how Pride Institute can help you, then they will walk you through the admissions process step-by-step. Learn more about the process on our Admissions page.
Pride Institute’s admissions office will work with you to arrange transportation to and from MSP International Airport.

Support from family and friends during this time can be very valuable. Clients can receive messages, letters, packages and gifts (subject to inspection). In addition, there are visiting hours every weekend. Family members may also be invited by the client to attend the Kindred Family Therapy Program.
A staff member will talk with you about what you should bring to make your treatment stay comfortable and productive. They can also answer any last-minute questions. See our What to Bring page for more details.
Speaking with an interventionist may be helpful. If your loved one needs treatment but isn’t willing to seek help at this time, consider finding some support for yourself. Look into a local Al-Anon meeting, where you can meet other people in similar situations. You can provide resources and information to your friend or family member, but you can’t make them take this important step.
Addiction treatment covers a spectrum of services that are used to address substance abuse, mental health issues and sexual health behaviors that have become problematic in a person’s life. Treatment of these identified issues may include the use of evidence-based interventions, skills, strategies, pharmacology and recovery/therapy models to provide a multidisciplinary, holistic and comprehensive approach to treating these problems.
A person can receive treatment for substance dependency, mental health issues and sexual health issues such as sexual compulsivity, sexual trauma and sexually avoidant behaviors.
A person must be a member of the LGBTQ+ community to attend Pride Institute.
Length of treatment varies according to diagnosis, insurance variables and severity of issues. A typical residential stay at pride is 28 days. A typical outpatient program can last from eight to 12 weeks.
Early in the course of your treatment, the clinical and medical staff create a team that will make recommendations for continuing care. Depending on the person, continuing care recommendations may include continued outpatient treatment, transfer to a sober living program, attendance at 12-step and aftercare groups, as well as continued therapy or psychiatric sessions. We’ll assist clients in making sure all needs are being addressed before discharge.
All pride staff counselors are licensed as alcohol and drug counselors with many having their master’s level degrees.
