Director of Business Development & Community Relations
Universal Health Services, Inc.
March 28, 2018
The Pride Institute is the nation's first and leading provider of residential and outpatient treatment programs exclusively treating substance abuse and mental health needs of the LGBTQ+ community. With a Residential program in Eden Prairie, MN that provides integrated treatment services for adults with chemical dependency, sexual compulsivity, and co-occurring disorders, and Intensive Out-Patient (IOP) programs in the Uptown area of Minneapolis and soon in Rochester, we have been providing our clients a comfortable, safe alternative to traditional treatment programs for over 30 years.
Pride Staff are a talented, diverse, compassionate, and dedicated group. Some of us are part of the community and some of us are allies. Some of us are in recovery and some of us have only witnessed the devastation caused by addiction. Some of us came to Pride with limited knowledge of the unique challenges experienced by our clients and some of us have personally faced those challenges. We are always learning from each other and from our clients.
We strive to provide the best client-centered care by employing and developing highly qualified staff trained in working specifically with the LGBTQ+ community and dedicated to service excellence. Our clinical team, made up of counselors, mental health clinicians, and therapists bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to each individual case. Our experienced physician and nursing/tech staff provide 24/7 medical care to our residential clients.
Pride's commitment to service excellence extends beyond delivering exceptional client-centered care. Our ongoing success is also dependent upon our highly motivated, nonclinical professionals working to improve business operations.
