Maple Lake Recovery Centers provide chemical assessments for teens who may be involved at any stage of drug and alcohol use.
We start with a brief phone screen with either concerned parents, friends, court personnel, or social services, employers, church contacts, community support programs, or insurance company representatives and make sure we identify your specific needs. We may recommend a more comprehensive chemical assessment or, as part of a large community of dedicated service providers, refer you to an agency which can help with your specific needs.
Please fax your Substance Use Assessment to our admissions coordinator at (320) 963-6279.
