Minnesota's Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment system has changed to Direct Access. The goal of Direct Access is to allow for faster access into care/treatment services.
Direct Access allows individuals the ability to go directly to the provider of their choice for a comprehensive assessment. The provider will then determine if the individual can schedule to have a comprehensive assessment completed or if there is additional information needed in order for this to occur. The treatment provider will coordinate with the county to process the additional information if needed.
If you live in Minnesota, there is a wide range of services available for substance use assessment, treatment, and withdrawal management for adults, along with treatment options for adolescents. Stevens County residents are encouraged to use Fast-Tracker, an online resource that lets users search for programs and services specific to their needs.
