Substance Use Disorder

Substance Use Disorder is a physical and/or psychological addiction characterized by the compulsive use of mood altering drugs. Mood altering drugs include alcohol, hallucinogens, marijuana, narcotics, opiates, and sedatives. These can cause individuals to continue their using behavior while expecting a different outcome after each use. The result of this compulsive use can mean legal difficulties, loss of employment, family dysfunction, and medical / health complications.

Eligibility Process for Substance Use Disorder Services

Individuals who have private insurance or are on a managed care program through UCare/BluePlus, Minnesota Care, or Medical Assistance may access a Comprehensive Substance Use Assessment and treatment service by calling the number on the back of their insurance card. 

Individuals without health insurance may be eligible for services, based on income and family size. A intake worker can discuss with you whether or not you may qualify.
