We make every effort to make the addiction treatment admissions process as smooth as possible. Our staff is well versed in determining what addiction insurance benefits are available to prospective clients.
The first step in admissions is an initial screening to gather relevant information. During this process, we can schedule a Clinical Assessment to determine the appropriate level of care for the client.
Many of our clients are referred to Alternatives in Treatment by other facilities or practitioners and we will do all we can to assist in that process and provide whatever support is necessary.
