Admissions

It’s normal to feel anxiety when coming to a treatment facility—but know that we are here to support you every step of the way. Our Admissions Counsellors are here to assist you whenever you or a loved one is ready to admit “I need help!” Our Admissions Team takes you through a compassionate, discrete, and thorough process to determine the type of treatment that best suits your needs. We triage, assessing each new patient’s medical, psychological, emotional, physical, and social needs. Based on this information, we make recommendations, provide the most appropriate options, and give referrals. The call is completely confidential and you are under no obligation to come to our treatment facility.
