Admissions

introspectionOur Admissions Department is staffed with compassionate behavioral healthcare professionals. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide assessment, evaluation, level-of-care determination, and referrals to community resources, based on clinical needs. Our assessments & consultations are free and confidential. We also have a mobile assessment team which can travel within a 60-mile radius, to provide assessment & evaluation to the individual who may not be able to travel to the Admissions Department for an evaluation.
