Fraser Woodbury Groundbreaking Ceremony

Fraser, Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services, is delighted to announce the expansion into the Twin Cities east metro, serving Washington, Ramsey and Dakota counties. Fraser broke ground on its seventh mental health clinic on Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 721 Commerce Dr., Woodbury, MN 55125. Fraser Woodbury will be a state-of-the-art mental health clinic.

The new clinic addresses the needs of families, 1,000 of which are waiting for services in St. Paul and the surrounding communities. Using data from the Center for Disease Control combined with US Census projections, more than 6,500 east metro families may need this new, state-of-the-art mental health treatment clinic within the next ten years. The anticipated opening for the clinic is summer, 2018.

Fraser Woodbury will offer comprehensive autism and mental health evaluations, diagnostic and treatment services; autism and mental health day treatment; case management; applied behavioral analysis; and speech, occupational and physical therapy. Unique to Fraser, families will have the benefit of receiving multiple complementary services in one building. Research shows that treatment outcomes drastically improve when all therapies happen in one place. This model allows children to spend more time in direct treatment, decreases medical and travel costs for families and improves treatment outcomes.

Fraser Woodbury is made possible through the generosity of numerous community members, corporations and foundations. It is through support from our neighbors that Fraser is able to grow to meet the needs of local families.
