It’s often said that the hardest part of overcoming an addiction is taking the first step into a rehab program. Rehab admissions is designed to be simple, especially at Gateway. Clients can expect help and support right away as they work toward the health and happiness they deserve. On your journey to addiction recovery, take advantage of all the resources that are available.
The rehab admissions process begins with a complete intake assessment. This assessment consists of clients telling their stories and Addiction Medicine experts helping develop a customized treatment plan that meets all of their needs. During an intake assessment, expect a focus on health. Toxicology screenings, for example, can reveal what substances are in the bloodstream and what withdrawal symptoms clients might expect in the coming days and weeks.
An intake assessment might follow a tour of the facility. A tour is not just a chance to see the premises. It is also an opportunity to ask questions, view accommodations and get a feel for the recovery process. Family members and other loved ones can also get peace of mind knowing that the Gateway locations are welcoming, safe and comfortable.
We are open and assisting clients struggling with addiction. Due to COVID-19, we ask that you have a maximum of one person drop you off for your assessment. If admitted, you will be tested for COVID and are required to wear a mask at all times while in treatment with us.
We know that this is an urgent matter and we want to get you or your loved one into treatment quickly. Gateway does not offer walk-in services currently due to COVID however, we do have locations that offer 24/7 admissions. If you call us we can get the process started and get you into treatment in as little as an hour or two.
