    What to Expect

    ASSESSMENT: The assessment process begins with the patient/family calling into the agency. We will get some basic information and then schedule an intake assessment. The intake is our comprehensive assessment that occurs face-to-face with the patient and the family / guardian. Once the assessment is completed, we will contact the family within 24-48 hours to discuss a start date, if patient met IOP criteria, or to inform family of reason patient was ineligible for IOP and offer referral information.


    ADMISSION TO IOP: On the first day of admission, patients and families meet with an IOP clinician and receive a brief orientation to the program. Upon admission to IOP, the patient will be placed into one or more, (based on highest level of severity first), of our treatment specialty groups. This allows us to comprehensively address patients with dual disorders and accommodate their care based on their present needs. Parent/guardian involvement and attendance on Monday nights are requirements for admission to IOP.
