Practical Solutions to Advance
Support for Families and Friends
Thank you for
with our clients and talking with those of you who are working in the
field, it is obvious that there is a tremendous interest in the Minnesota
Model and how it can both define a treatment process as well as how
components of it can be integrated into a variety of existing programs and
that in mind we are now developing a series of informative pieces that
will address various issues and questions. We will be posting new
information in the coming weeks and invite you to check back regularly. In
the mean time you can review the
FAQ in this site,
as well as the following article, "Caring Community" by Mike Schiks.
We invite your
questions and will be expanding our site to answer more of them
specifically in the future. We want to insure that our website is a
valuable resource both for specific consulting services but also for
knowledge and applicable use of the Minnesota Model as a treatment option.
