“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
This old proverb wisely illustrates why focusing on a first step will keep feelings of being overwhelmed from tripping us up.
When you contact us, either by phone or online, you’ll be connected with a licensed addictions therapist; we’ll begin by gathering information to find out how we can best help you or your loved one.
Calls originate from potential patients, family members, loved ones, referring physicians, and other professionals. It’s not important who makes the call; it’s just important that someone calls. And when you do, we are here to help you get on the path to recovery, happiness and well-being.
Assessing Your Situation—An In-person Evaluation
An opportunity to sit down face to face with a therapist is the best way to get the ball rolling. You will be invited to schedule a time (often the same day you call—the sooner the better) to discuss your current condition, your concerns, your thoughts, and your feelings about what you need and want in treatment. You are welcome to bring any family members or loved ones. There is no charge for this evaluation and it usually takes about an hour. We know the questions to ask to help determine what treatment would be most beneficial and if additional services are necessary.
After the evaluation the therapist will discuss a recommended course of treatment with you. If for any reason it is determined that our programs are not the right fit, or that a different level of care is indicated, we can help you with referrals to other programs or facilities.
Insurance and Finances
After a treatment decision has been made, we will help you determine insurance coverage and treatment costs, and then assist with making the necessary financial arrangements.
The last step is to identify the day you will begin treatment. The specific schedule will be determined by the initial treatment plan we have developed with you. For most patients this will involve visits with our medical provider, intensive group counseling three times a week for about three hours per session, and individual counseling. Your journey toward recovery has now begun!
