Assessment & Referral for Treatment

Fairview Recovery Services (across the street from Augsburg) provides confidential “assessments” for chemical dependency, if you are concerned that you may have a substance use problem and would like to understand treatment resources available to you.  Most health insurance will cover an assessment (call your health insurance customer service number to find out about your plan coverage).  If you don’t have insurance, Augsburg may be able to cover the cost of the assessment, or may help you find a state-funded free assessment (for information, have a confidential conversation with a counselor in the Center for Wellness & Counseling, or inquire with the Office of Student Affairs).  Call 612-672-2736 to schedule an evaluation.
