Due to HIPAA laws, we may not release any information about a patient unless the patient has provided written consent.
Clients are permitted to make phone calls after they have completed 7 days of treatment. Clients must schedule this with their case manager or primary counselor and all calls will be made in the presence of a staff member. Family members can call in and leave a message for the patient through the patient messaging voicemail system. Clients are unable to receive phone calls directly.
We encourage family involvement in the patient’s recovery process. While we currently do not offer open visitation days/hours, the assigned counselor may schedule family sessions (via phone or in-person) & visitation after the patient has been in treatment for a minimum of 2 weeks. Any request for visitation must be scheduled and approved by your primary counselor. We highly recommend that minor children (under the age of 14) not attend these sessions. All visitors must be approved by the primary counselor.
Each insurance company has medical based guidelines that we must follow to access the benefits provided in their policy. There are two components to this process:
Pre-certification: We call the insurance company and inform them the patient is here. Insurance will then approve the initial admission and will give us a date to review the patient’s progress.
Concurrent Reviews: We call the insurance company to report the patient’s progress. The insurance company will then approve the use of benefits for a specific time and set a date for the next review. This step is repeated as many times as the insurance company requires.
We work diligently to maximize the treatment days available for each patient. Our counselors keep the clients informed of their insurance status.
