Introduction and Basic Services

Since 1975, the Fargo, North Dakota, treatment facility known as ShareHouse has offered gender-specific treatment for men and women. The evidence-based programming has a heavy emphasis on the 12 steps. There are both inpatient and outpatient options, with comprehensive services and education for adults and their loved ones in a supportive and highly structured environment.

Facility and Meals

The residential programs have four gender-specific apartments where clients live while in treatment. In addition to adult men and women, there are also spaces specifically for mothers and their children. In total there are 104 beds available. The apartments are fully furnished and have two to three bedrooms in each, all of which are shared with one other client. The living spaces are spacious and comfortable, and the facilities have laundry on site, and cable TV is included at no extra charge. Treatment takes place on the premises as well as in the community spaces.

Though clients all have full kitchens in their apartments, every facility has an industrial kitchen and community dining hall where three meals a day are prepared and served. The community meals come from a set menu, but clients are welcome to eat what they’d like if they make their own food. Caffeine and sugar aren’t limited while in treatment.

Treatment Protocol and Team

There is an in-depth evaluation process that takes place at intake that determines the level of care needed for each client. Typically each program is a minimum of 90 days at the start. The group therapy schedule is based on the individualized treatment plan developed at the assessment. Share House offers a protocol called the Treatment Mall, which consists of over 100 hours of group and individual therapy per month in a variety of forms. This includes groups that focus on trauma-informed care, smoking cessation, anger management and parenting, for example. Therapeutic approaches can be CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI).

Co-occurring support and treatment is offered and can include medication management. There is an emphasis on physical health and wellness incorporated into treatment schedules, holistic treatments, Big Book study and written assignments in some cases. AA and NA meetings are offered on-site and clients are required to obtain a sponsor and work the steps.

The outpatient treatment program has two levels of care; the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) which entails three days of treatment per week for three hours at a time, and the low intensive program that runs twice a week. There is also a family program and educational group that works on communication within the family unit, and aftercare planning.

There is a very large staff at ShareHouse who offer a variety of experiences and accreditations. Staff includes LADCs, LPCs, LCSWs, LPNs clinical psychologists and RNs.

Bonus Amenities

Clients can participate in Qi Gong. There are also frequent fun sober outings led by staff. Clients go on trips to museums, head to local parks and enjoy other experiences that in and around Fargo.
