The Carroll Institute Overview

Located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, The Carroll Institute is a substance abuse treatment organization that offers outpatient, counseling, and transitional living programs to clients living within the Sioux Falls area. The organization began as a committee that offered referrals and education to individuals living within the community with substance abuse issues. After they gained popularity, they began a DUI program, opened a halfway house, and facilitated prevention services within the community. The facility currently offers multiple outpatient treatment services to clients, as well as transitional living options and prevention education. They changed their name to The Carroll Institute from Community Committee on Alcohol Abuse as a way of paying respects to Lynn Carroll, who played an important role in the 12-step recovery movement.
The facility currently offers treatment services to clients with chemical dependency and substance abuse issues, but cannot treat dual diagnosis patients. The treatment center also does not offer medical or detox services to clients, but clients who require such care will be referred to an outside facility. An intake evaluation is done at the beginning of treatment to determine the level of care a client requires. During this assessment, it will be determined if clients are struggling with a co-occurring disorder and require a more intensive program. Clients are required to pay a one-time fee before this intake assessment can be done.
The facility offers outpatient treatment programs to adults only, and this program is heavily rooted in 12-step modalities. The typical duration of stay in a program is from six to eight weeks and during this time, clients are required to complete weekly individual therapy and 18 group sessions. In addition to these requirements, clients must attend 12-step meetings and topics such as anger and grief management, relapse triggers, self-esteem, and relationship support are offered. Clients are given the option of choosing between morning or evening sessions depending on the time of convenience.
Morning sessions take place from 9 am to 13 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays while the evening sessions take place from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Clients addicted to methamphetamine can benefit from the slightly more expensive outpatient program offered by the facility. This program is under the intensive outpatient track and holds thrice weekly for three hours.
