Caring for the whole person
At HealthEast, we care about healing the whole person — mind, body and spirit. Our patients tell us that the spirituality they experience at HealthEast makes a difference in their healing. As a faith-based health care organization, we encourage and celebrate spirituality among our staff, caregivers and patients. From bedside visits by chaplains to grief support for families, we see how spiritual care can impact the emotional and psychological health of our patients and their families.

Inpatient chemical dependency treatment
St. Joseph's Hospital offers two levels of unique, full-service inpatient care for adults dealing with chemical dependency.
- A detoxification program serves those needing only immediate care.
- An inpatient chemical dependency treatment program provides care for those requiring longer hospitalization.
- All patients are medically managed by a team of caregivers.
Those who require inpatient chemical dependency care often have complex, co-existing problems. For these individuals, our team of psychiatrists, family practice and internal medicine physicians provide tailored assessments and treatment.
Outpatient chemical dependency treatment
Our primary outpatient treatment offers morning or evening sessions. Our mental health outpatient clinic provides psychiatry and psychology services and an addiction counselor may refer an individual treatment plan. This support continues even when the individual leaves our facility.
HealthEast also sponsors Boys Totem Town, Ramsey County Case Management and Friends in Recovery alumni support groups for important long-term encouragement.
Mental illness & chemical dependency treatment
