How to access Substance Abuse Treatment

If you or someone you have a relationship to has a substance abuse problem and is struggling in growing or maintaining their independence, quality of life, and or health and safety and does not have the resources available to them to purchase the supports they need, then application to determine eligibility to access treatment funds can be made. Initial application can be made online, over thephone or by printing off an application and returning it to the Wright County Social Services Office.

Once an application has been submitted and all information has been clarified and missing information obtained an eligibility decision will be made. In order for an applicant to be eligible to access treatment funds they must have a completed application on file, meetdiagnostic criteria, and be at or below the income and resource guidelines. Once a decision has been reached the applicant will be contacted and given the decision and any reason for a ineligibility. If an applicant has been determined eligible they will be assigned to a service coordinator who will perform an assessment to determine the applicants level of need. Once an assessed level of need is obtained, treatment funds will be encumbered to the applicant. Note: [Should funds be fully encumbered, applicants who meet all eligibility criteria may be placed on a waiting list] Often times applicants may apply for funding through their treatment provider. Wright County's primary treatment provider is Community and Family Resources in Ft. Dodge.
