Effective July 1, 2022, legislation went into effect replacing Rule 25 assessments with ‘comprehensive assessments’. Rule 25 assessments are no longer be available in Minnesota, and Western Prairie Human Services does not provide the new comprehensive assessments. Instead, Western Prairie Human Services now provides Treatment Coordination. Individuals with SUD often experience needs in other life areas (e.g. medical, mental health, family, employment, criminal justice, housing, finances), and treatment coordination addresses these issues concurrently to improve treatment outcomes. Treatment coordination is a person-centered treatment service involving the deliberate, collaborative planning of SUD services with the client and other professionals involved in the client’s care.
Treatment coordination may include:
Assistance in locating a provider to complete a comprehensive assessment.
Assistance in coordination with family, friends, and providers to help in the treatment planning process.
Assistance in coordination with and follow-up for medical services as identified in the treatment plan.
Facilitation of referrals to substance use disorder services as indicated by the client’s medical provider, comprehensive assessment, or treatment plan.
Facilitation of referrals to mental health services as identified by a client’s comprehensive assessment or treatment plan.
Assistance with referrals to economic assistance, social services, housing resources, employment services, prenatal care, etc, according to the client’s needs.
Life skills advocacy and support accessing treatment follow-up, disease management, and education services, including referral and linkages to long-term services and supports as needed.
