A confidential assessment is the first step in determining if further chemical health services are needed. We will set up a time for you to meet with a counselor at Common Ground who will ask you a series of questions to determine where you fall in the spectrum of substance use. The assessment begins with a short screening conducted by our staff to determine what your needs are. In most cases, a recommendation will be made to you immediately after the assessment interview is concluded that best aligns with your current situation. If we do not offer the services needed, you will be referred to a provider within the community that meets your individualized needs and situation, or if you do not meet clinical criteria, a recommendation may not be needed.

Common Ground is also approved to provide Consolidated Fund, Rule 25 assessments in Olmsted County and Winona County. We are also able to accept Rule 25 funding from any county in Minnesota. If you believe you may be eligible for Rule 25 funding please call us and we will help you start the process of contacting your county of residence.
