How Comprehensive Assessments Work
Under the state's Comprehensive Assessment (similar to a state law), all county or tribal agencies must provide an assessment when requested. Health plans that serve Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare clients also must provide assessments.
A Comprehensive Assessment is an interview screening conducted by a licensed chemical health assessor to determine whether the client suffers from a substance use disorder.
A chemical dependency assessment includes an interview with a counselor to review a person's chemical use and its impact on their daily life and relationships.
