Admission to our Addiction Program
At Northbound, we do everything we can to make the admissions process simple, and stress-free.
When the time comes to get help, you don’t want to wait.
The first steps toward treatment are difficult, tenuous ones. At Northbound, we do everything we can to make the admissions process simple, and stress-free.
Our trained and experienced intake coordinators will guide you or your loved one through the entry process for our alcoholism and addiction treatment programs. Because we know that finding the right moment to seek help doesn’t work on a 9 to 5 schedule, our understanding and empathetic intake counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help in the assessment and intake process. We’re even available to do an in-person evaluation at any time through one of our clinical offices.
At Northbound Treatment Services, the admissions process is really about listening to our clients and properly evaluating their needs. We want to be sure that we find the right program for them. Through this assessment, we may find that some people would do best in an outpatient program, while others would require more intensive inpatient treatment.
No matter what their specific needs, our admissions staff discusses the following with each and every potential client:
- General Admissions Requirements — Northbound treats both men and women (age 18 or older) who are suffering from alcoholism and/or drug addiction. In addition, we seek to improve both physical and mental health by treating co-occurring or dual disorders—the combination of chemical dependency and a psychiatric or emotional illness
- Intervention — For those seeking guidance in staging an intervention for a loved one, Northbound has trained interventionists on staff who will work with families and potential clients in breaking through the denial that typically impedes them from entering treatment. In addition, we also have a network of interventionists throughout the country who can aid in facilitating out-of-state interventions.
- Detoxification — Recognizing that some of those who enter treatment must immediately enter detox as well, Northbound has its own residential, sub-acute detoxification center in Orange County.
- Frequently Asked Questions — You probably have lots of questions about treatment at NTS and how our clients spend their days. Our counselors are happy to answer your questions and address your concerns. In addition, you may find the “FAQ” section of our website helpful as well.
The decision to seek treatment is an important one, and we want to make the process as easy and understanding as possible. Northbound Treatment Services is committed to providing the highest quality of care to all of our clients and their families. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have about our intake and admissions process, or any of our services.
Our mission is to help victims of addiction and alcoholism find healing, whether though our treatment services or elsewhere. We are here for you. If our programs don’t meet the needs of the person seeking treatment, we will assist in placing him or her at another appropriate facility.
To help aid you in your selection we have created a must ask questions list when selecting a treatment facility. CLICK HERE to view.
