Renville County Human Services offers assistance to people of all ages who are experiencing substance use related problems.  Anyone may request and receive a Chemical Health/Rule 25 assessment.  To receive funding for treatment from the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF), you must meet the Rule 24 criteria.  Everyone has a right to a second assessment if you disagree with the first assessment or choice of treatment services.

Services that may be provided:

  • Chemical Health assessment
  • Assistance finding a provider of services including detoxification, diversion, residential treatment services, hospital based treatment services, outpatient treatment services and aftercare programs
  • Case management
  • Referrals to local resources including such things as support groups and education programs
  • Pre-petition screening for civil commitment

A Rule 25 Chemical Health Assessment refers to Minnesota Rules, parts 9530.6600 to 9530.6655, which establishes the criteria for determining the appropriate levels of chemical dependency care for public assistance recipients.

A Pre-Petition Screening Team consultation would be used to determine the severity of chemical use and assessing danger to self or others as it pertains to individuals being petitioned for civil court commitment.
