Rehab Admissions Process

Posted in Admissions

There is a great deal of thought that Atlanta residents need to put into finding the right rehab facility. Recovery helplines are able to provide you with information about various drug treatment therapies, different facilities, and varying counseling strategies. They can help you investigate your insurance coverage, explore financial options and give you insights to what expect while at rehab. Once you make your decision, helpline staff is ready to help you make the logistical arrangements necessary to get to the facility and begin your treatment.

What Happens during the Rehabilitation Admissions Process?

One of the first things Atlanta residents will experience at a rehab facility is the admissions process. The following happens during this process:

  • Admissions – An admissions counselor helps you complete all of the required paperwork to get you comfortably situated in the facility. This will include contact information, authorizations you want to grant, financial arrangements, and any legal documents you need to sign.
  • Medical intake – To ensure that Atlanta residents get a comprehensive and customized treatment plan, counselors ask a lot of questions about medical history, substance abuse history, other health concerns, and whether patients need psychological services. Questions will also focus on your family and other relationships that comprise your support network.
  • Medical exam – You’ll get a thorough physical examination. If you need to detox, it will be done under medical supervision. You’ll also get an evaluation by a psychiatrist. If you require medication, it will also be closely monitored. There will be a doctor, a physician’s assistant, or a nurse practitioner in charge, and nurses on duty 24 hours a day for any Atlanta patient.
  • Facility tour – A staff member will take you on a tour of the facility, explain the rules of the facility with you, and help get you situated in your room. In most cases, you will have a roommate and you will also have comfortable and pleasant accommodations. Most facilities include a day room with television and other entertainment such as board games and puzzles. The facility will also have group counseling rooms, smaller rooms for individual counseling sessions, a dining room, and laundry facilities. Many quality rehab centers also have a fitness room and often a room in which people can quietly medicate or relax.
  • Personal attention – Throughout your stay, staff is available to help Atlanta addicts through initial orientation, provide you with your schedule for the first few days. During your treatment, they are available, day and night, to help you know what you can expect to happen and answer any questions.
