Mental Health/Chemical Dependancy

Child and Adult Targeted Mental Health Case Management Services

Mental Health case management services address the unique needs of an adult or child who is experiencing mental health concerns and provide for obtaining, coordinating and implementing mental health services. Case managers can also assist in referrals to employment support or housing programs. To be eligible for case management, a person must have completed a Diagnostic Assessment or assessment update with a mental health professional within the past six months indicating the presence of a Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (for adults) or a Severe Emotional Disturbance (for children) in order to meet criteria to receive case management.

To request mental health case management for children or adults call Pope County Human Services at (320) 634-7755.

Chemical Dependency Services

Pope County Human Services provides Rule 25 Chemical Use Assessments to determine if a person meets criteria for a substance use disorder and eligibility for outpatient or residential treatment, and if the person meets financial eligibility criteria to qualify for treatment funding assistance. For those meeting criteria, the Assessor can also assist in locating a treatment provider and arranging the funding.

Though there is a fee of $225.00 for an assessment, some insurance plans such as PrimeWest do cover the cost, and a sliding fee based on income is available.

To request and schedule an appointment for a Rule 25 Chemical Use Assessment, contact Pope County Human Services at (320) 634-7755
