Four chemical dependency (CD) workers provide Rule 25 Chemical Use Assessments for adolescents and adults referred by the court, community providers, treatment programs, or who are requesting services on a voluntary basis. This assessment provides level of care recommendations for CD treatment, and is required to access the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF), an income-based treatment funding source. Individuals on Minnesota Medical Assistance are automatically eligible for CCDTF.
Chemical Dependency Assessment workers provide services coordination, make referrals, and conduct pre-petition screenings for CD commitment. Family members or other interested community members may request a screening for individuals who are presenting a serious danger to self or others due to their chemical use.
