Many people struggling with addiction simply cannot experience the health for which they long on their own. Residential treatment provides a safe, supportive environment where a person struggling with addiction can develop a solid foundation for recovery.
Admissions staff will obtain appropriate information from the patient to determine their needs prior to entering the program. Admission assessments are reviewed by treatment team members to determine appropriate level of care. If the patient does not meet criteria for residential treatment, we will provide a referral to the appropriate level of care.
Within 72 hours of admission the patient will meet with a clinical therapist to gather a thorough history. This includes review of the individual’s life history, family history, network of social support, strengths and weaknesses and goals for treatment.
