2. Get Guidance and Evaluation
Your Admissions/Case Specialist will be your primary point of contact to guide you and your family throughout the pre-admissions process. He or she will lead the comprehensive evaluation process. We will work to ensure that we can meet your needs and to determine which of our programs will best fit your current life circumstances. This evaluation may include questions about precipitating events; mental health history; substance use and medical history; the family structure and issues, legal history, career and education; your current therapist and physicians; and contact information. Additional information about our treatment programs will be emailed or sent for your review upon request.
Our specialists work closely with you, your loved ones and your therapist every step of the way to determine the appropriate level of care and make specific recommendations for you. Our clinical and medical teams are consulted during this time to determine if Caron can meet your needs and which of our staff will comprise your individualized treatment team. At the same time, arrangements are being made to secure an admission date, or if necessary, an intervention date.
Important to Remember: Sometimes, individuals suffering from significant medical and psychological issues need stabilization prior to beginning treatment at Caron. We are not an acute care facility, but we can arrange for transfers from hospitals and other healthcare centers once an individual has been stabilized. Your Admissions/Case Specialist will work closely with you to set-up those arrangements when clinically appropriate.
