In recent years, the Minnesota Department of Human Services made changes to consolidate all residential treatment under one license. This allowed Douglas Place to restructure and provide specialized treatment to all levels of care.

Emotional illnesses cause injuries to us like depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. At The Stadter Center, we know that trauma, loss and emotional injuries require intensive healing, not a band-aid. It's why we began caring for individuals and families ten years ago. These illnesses actually can change how we see ourselves and feel about the world and ourselves. We go on suffering, usually alone and in silence, putting on a "brave face" for our family, friends, and co-workers. We keep trying to face life with courage but we just get worn down.

Friday, September 14, 2007 Addiction begins with pain, sometimes physical, other times mental or emotional.

Almost all use or abuse of alcohol or drugs is related to escapism- a need to deaden feelings of hurt, sorrow, loss or pain.

An addict may become an addict by first having a physical injury of some sort. The doctor prescribes pain medication, and before long the addict is hooked. Aside from the pain-killing effects of the drug on the physical body, the addict also recieves an emotional/mental relief, which contributes to the addiction.

A person who uses illegal, or street drugs, most often is searching for an escape. Many psychiatrists and therapists now refer to illegal drug use, or alcohol abuse as "self-medicating".
