Our mission is to empower people to improve their lives

Park Avenue Center provides research-based gender-specific drug and alcohol treatment in south Minneapolis, Minnesota. First established in 1979, we are a community-based program that proudly and ethically serves Minnesota’s less fortunate individuals in gorgeous settings. Providing beautiful environments shows our passion and respect for clients and their recovery. Using evidence-based best practices, we have maintained a reputation for the highest quality of services and care. Clients we serve typically struggle with multiple barriers to recovery, including mental illness, homelessness, financial problems, legal issues, and an overall lack of emotional support. We provide stunning, free, supervised off-site housing for clients in need. Programs are issue oriented including topics such as thought process, mental illness, trauma, anger management, relapse prevention, spirituality, relationships, self-esteem and self-image, codependency, budgeting, nutrition, education, physical movement, parenting, and 12-step meetings. We take pride in the quality of our services and the magnificent environment we have created.
