Take These Steps to Get Started.

Take the First Step® to recovery by reaching out and calling us right now. This call can save your life, or the life of someone you care about who has a substance addiction problem. You will know right from the first confidential call with our caring and experienced admissions counselors that you made the right decision. All of our admission counselors are very knowledgeable about substance addictions as well as the related (“dual diagnosis”) disorders that often accompany addictions — sometimes without awareness by the person suffering as well as their family. Our counselors also are in a position to inform you of your options, whether you are the person with the addiction problem, or a loved one, friend, or co-worker. We will listen to you – without judgment — answer your questions honestly, and during this process we must ask you about your medical and psychological history.

Step 1: Contact Us

Call 1-800-EASY-**** right now to speak with one of our professional admissions counselors. Making this call is an act of courage.  You may not feel like a hero when you pick up the phone, but do not hesitate, as hesitation is not an option with something as serious as substance addiction. Try to set aside a bit of time for this call – the more time you put into the call, the more information we can provide. But if you don’t have a lot of time for the call, still call. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are here for you.

Step 2: Assessment

With your consent at every step of the way, we will establish the best type of treatment program for you. We will arrive at the best solution – together – by considering both your financial and treatment needs. Topics that likely will be discussed include:

  • privacy policy
  • length of stay
  • type of accommodations
  • medical history
  • insurance information
  • additional services
  • aftercare

Step 3: Making the Arrangements

Our admissions coordinators will work closely with our clinical team to ensure that you experience a smooth and comfortable admission process. First Step® will help in every way we can, and every step of the way. We will call your insurance company, work with your legal representatives or family members – but only if you authorize this – and help you get here safely and on-time.  You may be asked to bring the following:

  • photo identification
  • emergency contact information
  • current medications
  • all active insurance cards
  • other methods of payment
