Suggested questions to ask treatment providers:
- What should we expect from treatment?
- How long is the treatment program?
- What treatment options are available?
- Is your program licensed and accredited?
- Is your program inpatient or outpatient?
- Do you treat multiple disorders (such as addiction and mental health)?
- Do you have medical doctors on staff?
- How quickly could treatment begin?
- How do you involve family during and after treatment?
- Is there follow-up after the initial treatment ends?
The first step in receiving services is to contact the treatment provider and arrange for a client screening. The provider will arrange for a clinical assessment to determine the severity of the problems and the appropriate level of care. Following the assessment, based upon capacity to serve the individual, the provider will arrange for admission to their program or refer the individual to an appropriate provider.
