Admitting into one of our eating disorder treatment programs is a very simple process. Below are three easy steps you will follow while you are being admitted. At any time during the process our intake coordinators are standing by day and night to answer any of your questions.
Step One: Contact us!
We offer many ways for you to contact us – either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org , via a contact form available on our website, via a self-assessment form, through our live chat service, or via our 24 hour Intake Line. Once we receive your contact request, we will usually return your inquiry the same day if possible.
Additionally, outpatient Providers and other treatment centers may refer a patient to us by submitting the patient referral form that is available here, or by contacting us through one of the methods mentioned above.
Step Two: The Pre – Assessment
During the pre – assessment which is usually conducted over the phone, we will ask a few questions about your current condition and treatment history mainly to determine which level of care best suits your needs. If Inpatient hospitalization is not required and your behaviors and symptoms are typical for someone with an eating disorder, we will then collect your private health insurance information so that we can verify your insurance benefits and out-of pocket costs (if any) for you.
We will also provide you with financing options if necessary. On the pre-assessment call we can answer any questions you may have about our treatment programs, curriculum, staff, typical lengths of stay, and program schedules. We can also schedule your Psychological Evaluation at this point in time, usually with 24 – 48 hours.
Step Three: The Psychological Evaluation
Once the Intake Assessment has been scheduled by one of our Intake Specialists, either a licensed Psychologist or Master’s level therapist specializing in eating disorder diagnosis will conduct your confidential evaluation at a date and time that is convenient for you, either in person or over the phone.
Immediately following the Evaluation, a treatment recommendation will be made, and an admissions date will be scheduled. If a higher level of care such as inpatient hospitalization is required, referral options can be provided.
