Bemidji Pioneer: Fond du Lac group continues to take action on drug use

FOND DU LAC RESERVATION, Minn. — A group of people on the Fond du Lac Reservation are informing the occupants of "known drug houses" about available resources, and say they've had some success since they began the activity in October.

A few individuals have reached out for help obtaining a Rule 25 assessment, which is completed by a social worker to determine whether a person qualifies for government assistance to pay for chemical dependency treatment. The Tagwii Recovery Center in Cloquet has scheduled a day for people to do walk-in assessments, said Ashley Diver, one of the organizers.
