Steps For Admission To Addiction Treatment And Rehab
The first step in the admissions process is calling to speak with one of our admissions team. On this call, the admissions coordinator will speak with you to gain an understanding of your physical health and mental health. This information will help them to suggest options for the best course of treatment. Additionally, they will work with you on the logistics of attending treatment such as payment options and any needed travel arrangements. When you speak to an admissions coordinator, it is an easy, no-obligation conversation that is completely confidential.
Getting into rehab can be a high-stress time. Family, friends, employers, and housing arrangements can all be in disarray. That’s why the steps to admit to rehab are simple and frictionless. We start with getting an understanding of your situation and need to make a determination of the right treatment facility and protocol. If you are not a fit for one of our programs, we still do our best to guide you to the right resources.
Step 1: A Simple Conversation
Our admissions coordinators are available 24/7 to speak with you whenever you are ready to get help. We simply listen to your story and get an understanding of your individual needs and why you picked up the phone to receive help. Our admissions team members have experience in behavioral health and want to get an understanding of your circumstances and collect as much pertinent information as possible so we can be of service to your healing process.
Step 2: Verify Insurance Coverage
Health insurance typically covers substance abuse rehabilitation and various forms of mental health & behavioral health treatment. However, the extent to which your insurance will cover your care is dependent on a variety of factors, including your policy’s particular behavioral health benefits, your particular needs, and more. We verify your insurance benefits ahead of time to let you know if treatment will be covered and the associated costs that may be involved.
Step 3: Complete Pre-Screening
You will complete a pre-screening to develop an understanding of your clinical needs to make sure that you are treated in the right program with the appropriate level of care. The pre-screening is conducted by one of our admissions teams that will ask questions based on a predefined set of questions developed by our clinical team. The pre-screening includes questions about your mental health, treatment history, physical status, and more so that we can make sure you receive the right treatment.
Step 4: Personalized Treatment Recommendations
Based on your individual circumstances and clinical needs, we will provide recommendations for a program within our network. If you are not a fit for one of our treatment programs for any reason, we will help to provide resources so that you still can receive the right treatment and your time is not wasted.
Step 5: Schedule Your Admission
Once we have determined the right program that you are comfortable with, we schedule your admission. At this time we again review your financial responsibility for treatment and provide a packing checklist for what you should bring and what not to bring. We also make sure there is a safe plan in place for you to get to the treatment program safely.
