The Council has an efficient and comprehensive process of admitting people through a centralized intake department. All prospective and referral agencies contact Central Intake.
Thorough Biopsychosocial Diagnostic Assessments are completed in order to determine the nature and extent of the patients’ addictions, and to appropriately place them into the proper level of care.
The past several years have seen a more complex patient with multiple presenting problems beyond substance abuse including homelessness, mental health, criminal justice, medical and employment issues. As a result, the assessment process has also become increasingly important and complicated. In addition, better cooperation between other treatment providers and community agencies has resulted in better assessments and more appropriate placement of patients.
Central Intake serves as the triage center for The Council with assessments available Monday – Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
