Assessment Process

Your call to us will be answered by a behavioral health professional and a no-cost, confidential assessment will be scheduled. Before your assessment appointment, we will verify your insurance benefits, and we will review them with you at the time of your assessment. If you are traveling a long distance, we can discuss your insurance benefits over the phone prior to the assessment.

Our assessment involves:

  • A free, confidential, face-to-face interview
  • A discussion of current issues you are having and their effect on those around you and your family
  • An explanation of insurance benefits and the cost of treatment by a financial counselor
  • A discussion of your recommended treatment plan with your clinician and your family

After careful screening to determine the level of care needed, you will either be admitted to a general or specialty program or a community referral will be made.

Please call if you or a loved one is suffering from:

  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Chemical dependency or substance abuse
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective disorder
  • Suicidal/homicidal thoughts
  • Mental health psychosis
