Chemical Use Assessment (CUA)

I've been ordered by the Court to do a Chemical Use Assessment, how do I do that?

Becker County Residents:

  1. Schedule your appointment no more than one week after your Court appearance.
    • If you are eligible to complete your assessment at White Earth Substance Abuse, please call them at 1-800-950-3248, to set up your CUA.
    • If you have a pre paid health plan (Medica, Blue Plus, etc), private insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield, etc) or eligible to receive a CUA through a veteran's service agency or another county agency, please call their customer service number to set up your CUA.
    • If you are a Becker County resident, and you are planning to complete your CUA with Becker County, please contact Wendy Raftevold at 218-847-5628 extension 5312.
  2. Sign a release form allowing the agency to send the completed CUA recommendations to:
    Becker County Court Administration
    913 Lake Avenue
    Detroit Lakes, MN 56501

YOUR CUA MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE COURT PRIOR TO YOUR SENTENCING. It is your responsibility to make sure the proper agency gets that information to the Court.

If we don't receive the above information within 30 days of the order then we assume that you didn't follow through with your Court-ordered CUA.

NON Becker County Residents:

  1. Contact the Court Administrator in your county of residence to find out what agency conducts Chemical Use Assessments for your county. You may be responsible for fees related to that assessment.
  2. When completing the CUA at another agency (other than Becker County), you must sign a release of information at that county/agency for: Becker County District Court
  3. Have a copy of the release form and the completed CUA recommendations sent to:
    Becker County Court Administration
    913 Lake Avenue
    Detroit Lakes, MN 56501

    Bring the agency that is completing your CUA a copy of your Court order and a copy of your traffic ticket or complaint. Some agencies will not complete the CUA without this paperwork. This is your responsibility and you will be given a copy of your Court order before you leave Court today.
