Things to consider in your journey: 

In the state of Minnesota, anyone providing these services needs to be a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) or other higher level licensed mental health practitioner.  Some important things to think about are:

  • How long have they been doing assessments outside of a treatment setting?
  • Is the fee reasonable compared to the same services elsewhere?
  • Do I want to use my insurance to pay for this or would it be better to not involve them at this time?  Using your insurance may create future problems with employment and some insurance eligibility.

If you are working through a DWI or a possession charge or have another reason to complete an alcohol or other drug use assessment:


  1. 1.  You can do your assessment over the phone or,
  2. 2.  You can come to our St. Paul home office.

  4. 4.  We have very fast turn around time.
  5. 5.  Our fee is $150 (WE DO NOT TAKE INSURANCE).
  6. ​
