WINGS has an excellent Education Department, housed within our facility, with a Licensed Special Education Teacher on staff.  Our Education Department works with all of our inpatient clients, in a school classroom setting, each day Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am - 2:30 pm.  This ensures that they do not fall behind in their schoolwork while at Wings, and if they are behind when they arrive, we make every effort to help them to catch up during their time with us.

Our Education Department meets each student exactly where they are at in their education.  We use a variety of educational techniques, allowing us to be responsive to the particular learning style of each student.  Independent studies are also available, and these are classes offered year-round.

Upon completion of their stay at WINGS, all class hours are credited back to their resident home school

Request for school records must be made directly to the MASWECO teacher, 
school records are not the property of WINGS nor do we have access to them. 

Please request them by calling 320-593-0440 ext. 23.


  • Collateral Information 

WINGS will need to obtain collateral information on each potential client.  This information is usually a Chemical Dependency Assessment, Mental Health Assessment (commonly called a Diagnostic Assessment) or a Rule 25 Assessment.  These are completed by licensed professional.

  • What is a Assessment/Rule 25?

An Assessment/Rule 25 is an interview with a Licensed Professional that is designed to assess an individual substance use history to determine what level of care would best meet the individual's needs.  Rule 25 assessments are only valid for 45 days, after which time an update is required.  

If you have not had any type of assessment completed, Wings will also do a Rule 25 assessment, however we do charge to have this done. It will be your responsibility to submit those charges to your insurance company. 

  • What do I do after the assessment is completed?

Once the assessment has been completed, have your Rule 25 assessor fax (320-593-0442) or email the assessment to info@wingsats.comOnce your assessment has been received by WINGS it typically takes 2-3 business day for our clinical staff to review the information. 

  • Is there any other information I should send to WINGS?

Please send Referral Application Form (click on the link to open the form and print a copy) along with a copy of the most recent CD assessment and a copy of a Diagnostic assessment if one has been done.

Please fax this information to WINGS at 320-593-0442 or E-mail to 


After reviewing your assessment and the clinical staff has made a determination if you are appropriate for the WINGS program, our staff will contact you to schedule a phone interview.  The interview is an additional screening tool that we use to determine if our services can meet your needs.  It is VERY important that your contact number is on the referral information and current.
