The first step to an admission is an over-the-phone intake; this usually takes about twenty minutes. During intake it is suggested that any insurance information is relayed to us so that we can begin the process of verifying benefits and create an estimate for an out-of-pocket cost to the patient.
After the essential information about the patient has been collected our medical staff and/or clinical staff will review and approve the admission or request more information to determine if we are appropriate for the patient.
Once an admission has been approved the admission date and time will be scheduled.
This process can take from anywhere several hours to several days depending upon the specific situation.Click here for a list of what to pack and what not to pack for sober living option at CoreVision Network.
Once the patient walks into CoreVision they will be helped by our admission staff who will guide them through the admission paperwork. This process usually takes about forty-five minutes.
The admissions paperwork is followed by a health and wellness check that will take place within 24 hours. Afterwards, the formal assessment process will begin with a licensed professional. Should new clients be deemed in need of detoxification, they will be referred to one of our detox partners and admissions will occur once they have finished this process.
Once the admission paperwork and health and wellness visit are complete, there will be time to review and understand the process of the next steps. Family are welcome to sit in or conference call in during this processing time.
In order for staff to help a patient become focused on treatment and increase positive outcomes, we have therapeutic limits on outside contact. Below is a quick summary of our rules established for the patient and their family:
- A Release of Information Form for each visitor or caller must be completed by the patient to allow CoreVision to communicate with them.
- No contact with the patient and loved ones for the first 5 nights; all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned in to CoreVision main office. Contact with family and friends by our sober living community clients is determined on a case by case basis.
- Visiting hours are allowed at CoreVision Offices only with a pre-scheduled appointment. No visitors are allowed inside the sober living establishments to see clients. Tours are regularly scheduled.
All of our rules will be further explained over the phone or at the time of admission. We know admitting into a program can make anyone feel uneasy, so please call our main office, and let us help ease any troubled feelings or answer any questions regarding our guidelines or process.
