Admissions for Behavioral Health Treatment
Our Admissions Process
Our admissions process is designed to be as simple as possible for both the patient and their family. We get to know the patient better and explain our programs and how we can help. We’ll answer any questions you have of course, too. Finally, we review and explain insurance coverage, financial arrangements, payment options and coordinate travel plans. Before you know it, you will be in a much better place.
- Step 1: CALL – A conversation between the prospective patient and their admissions coordinator. A pre-admissions screening is done so we can gather information about what you’re having trouble with and explain how we can help.
- Step 2: ORIENTATION – Upon arrival, an orientation and preliminary evaluation will be made to lay the foundation for a treatment plan and schedule.
- Step 3: EVALUATION – A full psychological evaluation will be given to assist in mapping out a continuing care plan for long-term recovery.
Insurance and Payment Information
As part of our dedication to our clients, we have affordable self-pay rates and also accept most private insurance plans. We accept most PPOs. If you are not sure if you have insurance coverage for treatment or need more information about paying for treatment, give us a call at (888) 989-1479. We can usually verify insurance benefits for you pretty quickly and then explain what your plan covers so you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
What is the Admissions Procedure Like?
Realizing that you need help dealing with mental health issues or substance abuse can feel overwhelming. Our admissions procedure is straightforward and easy to understand so that you can feel at ease with the process and prepare mentally and physically for treatment. We want to answer all of your questions prior to your arrival so that you know what to expect during your time at Destination Hope.
During the admissions process, treatment costs and care options will be explained to you. Thankfully there are several ways that you can pay for your treatment including via insurance. Under the Affordable Care Act, health insurance companies now cover mental health and addiction treatment in part or in full depending on the type of insurance you have.
Substance Abuse Admissions Process
Making the decision to enter treatment is the first step in achieving sobriety. At Destination Hope, our admissions counselors will determine the treatment option that will work best for you. For many, the first step will be detoxification to be free of any drugs or alcohol before entering the addiction treatment program. Destination Hope will make all the arrangements for you to enter our dedicated partner medical detox facility to ensure this first phase of your care is as safe and comfortable as possible.
The process of detoxification can be accomplished safely with medical supervision and a medication assisted detox both enhances safety and minimizes discomfort. The use of these medications can help you begin the treatment program more quickly and in better physical condition.
After completing the detoxification process, you are ready to be admitted to the treatment center. The center will let you know what to bring with you and what to expect during treatment so that you’ll be ready to settle in and get orientated when you arrive. Our treatment center operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year so you can admit here whenever you need to. Just give us call for your pre-admissions screening and to schedule your admit in advance.
Mental Health Admissions Process
The mental health admissions process is very similar to the procedure above, with the exception of the detox phase, of course. You will complete a pre-admission screening with your admissions coordinator on the phone first. Once your admission is approved, you will arrange a time to enter our center. Once you’re here and settled in, you receive your first formal evaluation where we’ll get more details to make sure we fully understand everything you are experiencing so we can begin to design a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
