Admissions

At Wellness Resource Center, we understand how intimidating getting treatment for addiction and mental illness can seem, which is why we have developed a streamlined admissions process that is as comfortable as possible. Prospective clients, families, and referents are free to contact Wellness Resource Center directly during regular business hours, when our onsite admissions coordinator will be ready and willing to answer any questions and facilitate the process of admissions. Additionally, individuals can contact our Admissions Support Center 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Taking the First Step

Pre-Admission Screening for Wellness Resource Center

Once the initial call has occurred, the admissions coordinator or a treatment team designee will complete a comprehensive pre-admission screening assessment in order to determine whether or not Wellness Resource Center will best be able to meet the potential client’s needs. At this time, the admissions coordinator or member of the treatment team will also oversee the use of any insurance benefits and coordinate financial coverage. He or she will also identify whether or not a prospective client is in need of detoxification and, if detox is deemed clinically appropriate, necessary referrals will be made, transportation will be arranged, and correspondence with the client’s family and/or referral source will occur.

Whenever possible, all screenings will be prioritized based on any immediate needs in order to minimize wait times. If necessary, potential clients may be referred to a network of facilities if community housing is needed and not immediately available, or if the client’s immediate needs cannot be addressed or maintained at the level of care offered at Wellness Resource Center.

At first I was scared of entering treatment for my out-of-control addiction. But I knew that I needed help and Wellness made it easy for me to enter treatment and save my life. Their step by step program helped me to take control and now I've been sober for 3 years. Going to Wellness Resource Center was one of the most important decisions of my life.
