Admissions Overview

Anew Treatment Center is designed and led by a team of professionals with more than 25 years of experience in building and directing successful therapeutic community programs. Our highly trained admissions team will help you navigate the admission process by guiding you through every needed step in addition to being readily available to help answer your questions along the way.

We're Here For You

Whether you’re seeking treatment for yourself or a loved-one, the first and most difficult step in the healing process is asking for help. Our caring staff will answer your calls directly, no frustrating voice message mazes to navigate. Once we connect, our first objective is to help assess your loved-one’s treatment needs and recommend an appropriate next step. This can be a confusing process as it is often difficult to know what the next step may be. An initial discussion with our team will determine whether your loved-one is appropriate for one of our treatment programs. We will also determine what level of care to recommend: Residential programming, Transitional programming, or referral to another best suited program. We have a large network of partners and will be happy to recommend other providers if necessary.

Understanding the Anew Admissions Process

Beginning the admissions process can produce significant anxiety for both the family and loved-one. We understand this and strive to be a trusting ally to you and the rest of your family as you explore treatment options. While every experience varies depending upon the individuals involved, you can expect the following of our admissions process:

01

Step One: Initial phone call and Pre-Assessment Evaluation

Our initial objective is to learn important information about the prospective new client including presenting issues/symptoms/diagnoses, treatment history, medical history, previous hospitalizations if any, prescribed medications, history of drug use, current living situation, relevant family dynamics, insurance options and finances. As we delve into these subject matters, it will help us and your family determine the next best steps.

02

Step Two: Clinical Director Review of Collateral

During this stage we will be asking previous providers to send relevant information regarding your loved-one’s time under their care. Our clinical team members will expeditiously review the information and then, if we believe your loved one is a good fit for the Anew programs, we will offer a Clinical Assessment appointment, either in person or remotely.  

03

Step Three: Schedule Clinical Assessment

The clinical assessment includes a one-hour meeting with the clinical director and family as well as a separate one-hour meeting with your loved-one. At the conclusion of these meetings, the clinical team will discuss and render an admission decision within 2 hours. If the decision is to admit your loved-one, we will then schedule an admission date. If the team determines that an admission into our program is not indicated, then we will do our best to help locate an appropriate alternative treatment option.

Step Four: Schedule Admission Date 

We usually schedule the admission to take place as soon as reasonably possible but typically not on the weekend. 

We are a Long-Term Treatment Program

One of the unique characteristics of the Anew Treatment Center’s therapeutic community program is that we offer a full continuum of care – from crisis intervention through a well-planned discharge. Clients often admit to our Clinical Residential level of treatment directly from the hospital or from a previous placement or living situation, then transition through the various levels of step-down treatment until they have acquired the skills necessary to complete treatment and move forward with a supportive and renewed lifestyle.

 

It’s important to understand that our long-term approach requires a time commitment in order to achieve the most desired and sustainable outcome. Over 25 years using this treatment model and approach, we have learned that the typical length of stay will be at least nine months. For that reason and because we do not want clients to admit with the intention of “trying out the program” we require a two-month commitment from each admitting client.  

 

There are plenty of 30/60/90-day programs that will admit patients to stabilize symptoms, then discharge them into another treatment program or back home without the requisite skills for sustained and lasting recovery and change.  We do not believe undergoing multiple admissions and discharges is typically in the best interest of the client and so we have developed a program that supports each individual and their families throughout the entire treatment continuum.
