CD Assessments Scheduled within 24 hours, 6 Days/Evenings a Week

Club Recovery’s chemical dependency assessments are available on a flexible schedule.  Generally, we can arrange an appointment as quickly at the next day.  We offer our assessments 6 days a week, including evenings, by appointment.  We want to be available for our clients when they need our help.

Club Recovery’s chemical dependency assessments are based on an in-depth interview conducted by our licensed counselors that will evaluate whether a client’s chemical use (drug and/or alcohol) is problematic or addictive.  Club Recovery’s assessment appointments are approximately 2 hours in length:

  • 1st Hour – The client reviews and completes medical privacy paperwork.  The client fills out background information packets to help their counselor understand the issues and needs that the client wants our help addressing.
  • 2nd Hour – The client meets for a one-to-one interview with a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor (LADC).

Following the client’s assessment interview, our staff promptly completes and mails our clients a professional and individualized chemical health assessment report that will include:

  • An in-depth summary of background and supporting information provided by the client to their counselor during the interview portion of the assessment and from written materials completed by the client during the assessment appointment.
  • A determination of whether the client meets medical criteria for a diagnosis of substance abuse or chemical dependence.
  • When appropriate, our assessments will also include a recommendation for education and/or treatment for clients who meet criteria of chemical (alcohol and/or drug) abuse or dependence or who would benefit from additional information about addiction or chemical health issues.

Club Recovery is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services under Rule 31 to provide chemical dependency evaluations and addiction treatment services. All counselors are Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (LADC).  Club Recovery is also licensed by and contracted with the State of Minnesota and Hennepin County to provide Rule 25 Chemical Use Assessments.
