Who we are:
Options Residential is a rehabilitative service organization that assists individuals in identifying, obtaining, and maintaining the skills and relationships that are necessary to fully experience life and live as independently as possible.
Options Residential, Inc. is dedicated to providing a healthy environment and appropriate services to empower individuals through a Rehabilitative Team Approach for Individual Recovery to fully experience life.
We hold the belief that over time, individuals can recover and lead more independent lives with minimal to no support in the community.
Options Residential, Inc. was developed in 2005 due to our President and Founder Brian Sammon noting the high need in the Minneapolis / St. Paul Metropolitan area to provide services that focus on rehabilitation, skill development and to provide a structured environment for those who have a diagnosis of Brain Injury, Mental Illness and/or Substance Abuse. The foundational goal is not to recreate the hospital setting but rather to assist individuals to achieve their potential with support on their journey to experiencing life while fully integrating into the community.
Since 2005 we have grown significantly in our mission of developing different levels of support to accommodate the individual’s needs rather than the individual having to accommodate for the level of housing or support that they enter.
We have developed a different and unique perspective to residential care. We believe that every individual can reach their goals of independence. Our specialty is developing the pathway from where the individual currently is to where they want to be and with celebration! Each transition represents another individual who has gained skills and is able to move forward towards their goals.
The mission of our program is to meet each individual where they are, recognizing their current needs and goals. From there we set out on the path of rehabilitation working with the individual, family, and their treatment team. These paths and timelines are different for everyone. The ultimate goal is to work with each individual to become as independent as they can be. This may be managing their mental health, recognizing triggers and the need for continued recovery.
Our history demonstrates our ability to evolve with the changing needs of the individuals we work with and the changing environments within disability services. We believe that our future is bright because it represents change, movement, and efficiency.
Who do we support?
The individuals we support come from all walks of life and from any county in Minnesota. A person seeking to utilize our services needs to qualify for Medical Assistance and be on a CADI, BI, or DD waiver.
We work with individuals who are viewed as difficult to support either due to their diagnosis or because of the behaviors that can present themselves. We also work with individuals who need less of the intensive behavioral components yet still need help with skill building.
What geographical areas do we serve?
Options Residential, Inc. provides residential services in Ramsey, Hennepin, and Dakota Counties.
