Juel Fairbanks follows clients through a continuum of highly structured treatment levels from new sobriety (72-hours abstinent) to readiness for transition back into community. Educated providers deliver these program services under the supervision of qualified professionals. The State of Minnesota DHS Rule 31 and other Minnesota Statutes regulate through licensing and oversight of categorical facility requirements under which Juel Fairbanks fully complies.
