Rule 25 refers to the administrative rule that addresses chemical use assessment, administrative requirements, and appeal and fair hearing rights of the client. All 87 Minnesota counties, 11 American Indian Tribes, and 9 state contracted Managed Care Organizations are mandated to provide Rule 25 assessments to anyone who requests one, or for whom a chemical use assessment is requested.
Clients who meet both clinical and financial requirements are eligible to have treatment paid for by the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund. For a statewide listing of contact numbers for a Rule 25 Assessment click the CCDTF Rule 25 Referral Numbers (PDF).

The information has been compiled into three broad categories: community capacity, service system infrastructure and resource needs.
