Kate Cavett Associates

Specialize in Holistic Alcohol and Other Drug Evaluations that are also called Substance Use Assessments.

Our assessors are LADC—Licensed Alcohol Drug Counselor, Rule 25 Qualified, and using the ASUDS-R instrument, if appropriate.

As independent Substance Use Assessors we specialize in comprehensive, compassionate assessments. Our assessments are based on an investigative interview using the Rule 25 assessment tool, and information collected from collateral contacts for a complete bio-psychosocial assessment. When appropriate we use other evaluation instruments, including the self-reporting ASUDS-R instrument. We follow Minnesota best practices in conducting our evaluations to provide the best quality assessment and feedback available for your specific needs.

We serve both adults and adolescents and we do so with integrity.
