Lindsey Mahnesmith’s passion has always been to help people. Her original career path was nursing. That all changed after a long history of addiction in her family and having a good high school classmate overdose. At that point she knew there was nothing more that she wanted to do then help people struggling with addiction. Lindsey realized that if these people had nobody else in the world at such a troubling spot in their lives they would have people like us, in this field who care and will do anything to help them. She received her Associates Degree in Addiction Counseling from Minneapolis Community and Technical College and is currently working on her Bachelor’s degree at Metropolitan State University in Addiction Counseling as well. Lindsey is extremely satisfied with the career choice she has made and will continue to do whatever she can to help people struggling with addiction and erase the stigma.

Our housing is a supportive living environment for those who are currently enrolled in our day intensive treatment program in Eagan. The housing is in a suburban neighborhood away from the triggers and reminders of the inner city. Transportation is provided to treatment for those enrolled. We currently offer housing to men (women’s housing coming soon). Clients are expected to pay an affordable security deposit to secure their housing, which is returned upon successful completion of programming. This service is very similar to IOP with housing programming!
