The Treatment, Recovery and Education Center for Children and Adolescents (TREC)
When you or a young person in your life is struggling with emotional and behavioral problems that may include an addiction to drugs or alcohol, our Mankato based treatment center is here to offer support and skills to succeed in treatment and ongoing recovery.
Our Treatment, Recovery and Education Center helps children ages 5-18 gain awareness of their mental health and or addiction conditions, and provides therapy, education and activities to successfully recover.
The young people and parents who come to our treatment program work with our expert mental health, chemical dependency, and family therapists.
What we do: not your standard teen treatment program
We understand that our young people are frequently affected by various psychological conditions, ranging from social anxiety to depression to traumas. This is why our program is grounded in a whole person approach, allowing you or your loved one to address one or more stressors or mental health conditions affecting them at one time and in one place.
Our driving mission is to provide a place where young people know they have a team in their corner to help them succeed. They participate in treatment derived from a customized treatment plan focused on individual goals and needs, including:
- A supportive community
- Individual therapy to address their specific mental health needs
- Group therapy
- Skill-building and self-development programs
- Support groups
- Activities supporting physical health and well-being
- Family involvement with options for teletherapy
- Development of an aftercare plan for success
- Access to follow-up care through our ASC Psychological Services
How to get connected with our treatment program
The youth in the TREC program often find their way to us through inquiries or referrals from a family member, medical facility, a church or other group, or county personnel such as case managers, probation officers or child protection workers.
Participants go through an intake process to determine if the program is suitable for their needs. Most insurance is accepted by our program, and our child and adolescent clients undergo a comprehensive evaluation to determine their therapeutic needs.
Contact our office to inquire about insurance. Reach out to your local county agency to ask assistance with the cost of care. Learn more about costs and coverage.
