Addiction Treatment Center Opening Soon in Bemidji

KP Selzler & Margot Kelsey

There’s not one way into addiction and there’s not one way into recovery... This is about building a life for yourself again.  There is a life after recovery and it’s beautiful, it’s wonderful, it’s good if you have supports and resources…This disease puts us in a cage.  So really, it’s about teaching people to take those bars down for themselves. - Margot Kelsey

The Northern Minnesota Addiction Wellness Center will soon open north of Bemidji.     Using a biological, psychological, sociological, spiritual model of recovery, the treatment center intends to create unique paths to wellness based on the needs of each individual working toward recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. 

It’s a peaceful revolution, but it’s a recovery revolution…Margot Kelsey
