Manning Family Recovery Center
The Manning Family Recovery Center (MFRC) at the Manning Regional Healthcare Center was established in December 1982. The Recovery Center’s mission is to provide safe, efficient, and effective chemical dependency treatment to chemically dependent individuals and their families across the Midwest. Treatment is provided by a caring, empathetic staff who believes your life can change with treatment – and we can help! Over the years the Recovery Center’s capability to provide service has grown to include detoxification, residential and outpatient chemical dependency treatment, co-dependency treatment and OWI evaluation/education.
What is Chemical Dependency?
The staff at the MFRC believes that chemical dependency is a chronic, progressive, and incurable disease, characterized by the loss of control over the use of alcohol, prescription and illegally obtained drugs. It is a disease which, in most cases, affects family members and friends, as well as the chemical user. Therefore, MFRC has designed a treatment process which allows the chemically dependent person and family members to learn how to live their lives without the use or influence of chemicals.
The MFRC is a 13 bed co-ed multi-level treatment center which seldom has a waiting list for admissions. The Center also has a “live” on-call counselor available for concerns, crisis, and information available 24/7. Help begins with a phone call!
When considering treatment, an appointment for a substance abuse assessment is the first step. After the assessment, an individual course of treatment is planned. The treatment may include detoxification, residential, one of four levels of outpatient, or a combination of different treatment modalities over a period of time. Each client’s treatment plan is individually developed and reviewed by the client and treatment staff.
Staff members include the medical director, consulting psychologist, program director, clinical coordinator, co-dependency counselor, case/chart managers, nurse care coordinator, assessment specialists, a recreation tech, and unit secretary. A 24-hour nursing service is also provided.
“Housed” (24/7 stay) at the MFRC or “traveling” (from home base) describes two of the basic levels of service options that are determined through assessment/evaluation. There are various ways to be involved within these two basic levels of service (see 1 thru 8)
- Acute care – inpatient: This service is a medical emergency/urgency service and the patient would in most cases be seen in ER and admitted to temporary detox (1 to 5 days).
- Residential outpatient treatment takes place daily. The length of the treatment stay is determined by the client’s daily progress, usually 28-32 days. The client is “housed” overnight at the Recovery Center during treatment.
- Outpatient treatment: MFRC outpatient treatment services may be arranged Monday through Sunday – around family needs and employment.
- Day outpatient treatment/partial hospitalization – travel or housed may take place daily. Travel or housed status is determined by evaluation/progress.
- Intensive outpatient treatment is available 7 days a week (Monday through Sunday) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Days, times, and number of sessions is determined by an evaluation/progress. This level of care may include 9 to 29 hours of service per week.
- Extended outpatient treatment is set up on an individual basis 1 to 3 times per week, as needed based on the evaluation. It is also available 7 days a week. This level of care may include 1 to 8 hours of service per week. During many of the treatment sessions, residential and outpatient clients may work together. The sessions can include recreational therapy, educational lectures, community group, specific group therapy, one-on-one, and psychological therapy
- Continuing Care: During the treatment process the chemically dependent person and their concerned person family member may participate together with other recovering people. The Recovery Center continuing care process is structured to involve the patient and the concerned person in the continuing care groups which are made up of people who have successfully completed their treatment program. This service is free to recent graduated MFRC patients. Individuals needing continuing care services, but are not recent MFRC alumni may make application and financial arrangements for services. Continuing Care group meets at Manning Regional Healthcare Center on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is facilitated by a counselor. The patient and the concerned person are encouraged to participate in the continuing care for up to one year.
- Concerned Person Program/Involvement: The “Concerned Person” is usually the family member who is closest to the chemically dependent person, and has been affected by the consumption and/or use. At the Recovery Center, concerned persons who have family members in treatment, participate in treatment through the family outpatient treatment program. They attend sessions up to three nights each week for six weeks or more, plus support groups. The program involves the concerned person in educational lectures, community group, their own group therapy sessions, one-on-one as needed, and support group.
MFRC hosts an education program that explores chemical dependency, its effects on family and friends, what happens in treatment, and how to help yourself and the chemically dependent person. This program is open to the public and is provided at no cost. Scheduling is based upon individual family needs and participation.
The cost of treatment programs is usually covered by most major insurance companies, as well as Title XIX and Medicare. We are one of two residential treatment facilities in Iowa that offer Medicare payment for treatment services. Anyone wishing for more information about coverage can contact the Business Office Manager at 712-655-2072. MFRC is a Title XIX – Medicare (Insurance) contracted provider. The Manning Regional Healthcare Center Business Office will confidentially check/review your treatment benefits for substance abuse/chemical dependency services. A confidential release for a benefit check is required. A confidential release will also be required if the insurance is through an employer in order to verify employment and insurance status. Approximate costs, based on the type of insurance and estimated length of stay, will be discussed if possible, prior to admission.
Note: MFRC is not a contracted state funded provider so we are not able to offer fees based on a sliding scale.
Treatment levels are determined by evaluation. Evaluations for non-emergency or planned admissions should be scheduled in advance. Planned admissions are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Fridays 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Planned admission times are arranged through the previously scheduled evaluation. Emergency/Crisis admissions are admitted through the Emergency Room, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Evaluations are by appointment and can be arranged by calling 712-655-2300 or 1-800-656-6372.
