North Dakota Heartview Again Offers Residential Treatment
Residential treatment has returned to the Heartview Foundation.
The community can see the new 12-bed facility at 101 E. Broadway Ave. from 1 to 4 p.m. today. It's a chance to tour the place before it takes its first patient on Thursday.
"A third of the building will be residential services," said executive director Kurt Snyder.
Heartview Foundation provides drug and alcohol counseling. It started in 1964, and offered residential treatment until 1996. It stopped because of the cost of insurance and a decrease in patients from Canada. During the same time, the organization moved from Mandan to Bismarck.
"Recently, insurance companies are seeing a need for residential programs, and they are willing to support it," Snyder said.
Who the Residential Treatment Facility will serve
The residential treatment programs will be for people who can go through detoxification without 24-hour medical care, or need a safe place as they get treatment started. Length of stay should average two to five weeks, with the goal of getting people back home and using outpatient services, Snyder said.
Heartview has served more than 23,000 people in 43 years. In addition to the chemical dependency services, it offers education classes about drugs and alcohol for schools and adults.
Funding for Heartview's Treatment
A capital campaign is raising $150,000 toward the $225,000 in renovation costs for the building on Broadway. Heartview Foundation has raised $50,000 so far.
