What Happens During the Assessment

Behavioral health care starts with an evaluation comprised of a clinical interview with one of our mental health specialists. Evaluations may last from 1-2 hours, as you will meet with a masters-level clinician or nurse. During this time, a member of our professional staff meets with you to evaluate your needs and review your treatment options with you. Following the evaluation, we will provide a comprehensive recommendation to the individual and/or their family for ongoing outpatient counseling, residential care or further physical/psychological assessment. If treatment at our facility is not appropriate, we will refer you to another agency or specialist who can best meet your needs.

What Happens at Admission

During the admissions process, you will meet with an intake specialist who will review your rights, insurance information and have you sign various consents for treatment. You will also have a series of comprehensive evaluations, including a nursing assessment, psychosocial evaluation, oral history and a physical exam. You will then be escorted to the appropriate unit. On the unit, your treatment team will meet with you to set goals and formulate your treatment plan.
