River Ridge Recovery

Women’s Intensive Outpatient Programming in Eagan and Plymouth


If you’re struggling with both mental health concerns and substance use problems, River Ridge Recovery can help. We offer three different levels of outpatient treatment specifically for women, which addresses both types of issues. Our program is dually gender-responsive and trauma-responsive to help you find the individualized support you need during your recovery.

Our outpatient treatment program is customized with a wide rage of services to help you address your behavioral health issues while continuing to live your normal life. This includes being able to work, go to school, and fulfill your other responsibilities.

You are not your addiction, trauma, or pain, and compassionate, personalized care is in reach! We offer same-day substance use disorder assessments Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5 PM. Simply walk into our Eagan or Plymouth location or call 952-522-1770 to schedule an appointment.

What is Women’s Outpatient Treatment?

What is Women’s IOP?

The Outpatient Programming helps women facing substance use disorders and mental disorders gain the skills they need to facilitate a successful recovery. Unlike residential programs, outpatient allows you to continue working or going to school while receiving treatment.

Women’s outpatient is unique because it recognizes the role gender and trauma can play in your journey to recovery. Our program is also designed to focus on co-occurring disorders, rather than simply focusing on substance use or mental health. This combination allows us to provide the most effective and targeted treatment.

Women’s outpatient programming is designed for individuals who cannot or do not need to attend residential care. However, for women wishing to receive more structured support, we do provide a rent credit program for partnered sober living homes.

River Ridge Recovery’s outpatient programming has three different levels of care.  All levels are focused on trauma responsive care and the integration of mental health services as part of the treatment structure as well as members of our multidisciplinary treatment team. All substance use disorder services are offered in a gender responsive setting as well.

High Intensity Outpatient:  Clients who are in this level of care will attend approximately 20-25 hours of services each week which include substance use disorder groups, individual psychotherapy, mental health group psychotherapy, psychiatry, family programming and peer recovery support services.

Intensive Outpatient / Integrated Recovery: Clients who are recommended to this level of care will attend approximately 12 hours of services each week. Treatment will involve group and individual therapy, mental health psychotherapy, psychiatry, family programming and peer recovery support services.

Outpatient / Sustaining Recovery: This is generally a step down from our Integrated Recovery programming. Clients attending this level of programming will attend approximately 5 hours of services each week including group and individual sessions, peer recovery support services and our legacy program.  The focus of groups is on mindfulness-based relapse prevention and ongoing recovery skills.

What are Co-Occurring Disorders?

What are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Substance use and mental illnesses often co-occur. In other words, individuals with substance use issues may also experience conditions such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress.

These disorders can interact and affect each other, ultimately making your symptoms more severe and complicated. Regardless of which disorder appeared first or is more prominent, it is essential to treat both with integrated services.

Research clearly shows that integrated services produce better overall outcomes for patients and their families. All River Ridge Recovery programs are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to provide co-occurring services of substance abuse treatment and mental disorder treatment.

How Do I Get Started?

When you arrive for your initial assessment, you’ll talk with a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor about your symptoms and what you’re experiencing. During this assessment, the counselor will make recommendations for outpatient or inpatient care. Then, we’ll work with you to develop an initial schedule and treatment plan. Each plan is designed to meet your needs and capitalize on your unique strengths and abilities.

Men’s and women’s services follow the same basic program structure and schedule. However, most groups and activities are held separately by gender. In addition, the materials and treatment strategies utilized are designed
