Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS)

Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) are for individuals who are experiencing significant difficulty with daily life activities as a result of a serious mental illness. IRTS services offer a range of mental health treatment options while providing comprehensive 24-hour care in a structured setting. The program focuses on supporting clients as they work towards increased functioning that would better support success in community living.
Treatment components are designed to promote recovery through the use of established rehabilitative principles and best practices based on contemporary research. These include:

Illness management and recovery skills education
Integrated co-occurring treatment
Family education

Independent living skills instruction
Nursing services
Individual and group therapy

Additional needs are addressed through the development of individualized treatment plans. Therapy, nursing care and rehabilitative services are typically covered through Medical Assistance (MA) and/or individual health insurance plans. Individuals who have a source of monthly income (i.e. social security, unemployment, employer disability payments) are responsible for all or part of daily room and board costs. These services are located in St. Cloud and are not county-specific.
