Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services
The county can assist residents with an alcohol/drug abuse health assessment process (also known as Rule 25), which consists of:
A chemical dependency/drug evaluation
A determination of the need for chemical dependency / drug treatment
If the assessment recommends chemical dependency / drug treatment, funding for treatment through the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF) may be available. CCDTF is a funding source after all other payment options have been exhausted.
