Once Recovery Center staff receive a referral or completed Online Intake Form, that information is screened and prioritized by a team consisting of representatives from medical, clinical and administrative staff. When a referral is accepted, the individual will be contacted and given a time frame for admission. If a referral is declined, the individual or referring agency will be notified of the reason.
This time frame for admission is approximate and determined by looking at current census (how many beds are available) and current length of the waiting list. Once a spot is projected to be open, an intake appointment is scheduled. If a client misses his or her intake appointment, he/she may be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.
In preparation for admission, Recovery Center residents are asked to bring personal items and prescriptions with them for their stay.
The staff at the Recovery Center work with each resident to ensure a smooth admissions process. A full-time admissions representative will coordinate payment and insurance, check-in time and date, and assist with any necessary paperwork to ensure a successful stay and recovery.
