Step 1: The interview
As part of the Admission Process, prospective clients are required to have an interview with the Company President along with a member of your support team. The assessment will take place in person. If the prospective client is currently in the hospital, United Chapters Living, Inc. will arrange for an assessment at your location. Interviews usually last approximately one hour. Assessment includes information regarding past and present physical and mental health history, existing symptoms, previous hospitalizations and treatment programs, criminal records, as well as any prior or current use of alcohol and drugs. Once the assessment is complete, the Company President determines whether the applicant is appropriate and recommends an appropriate level of care. The potential client will determine whether the potential setting is the right fit for their future.
Step 2: Admissions
While each individual is unique, clients can potentially complete the admission process within 48 hours of acceptance. However, in some cases, completion of all documentation and requirements may take a week or two. How to Expedite Admissions: The admission process proceeds quicker if all forms are faxed in advance of the initial interview, IE progress notes, hospitalizations, plans, case management assessments, anything that would allow to see the potential client in a ‘Snapshot’. In addition, all admissions require a simple physical exam. Having these documents readily available assists in the process.
Step 3: Scheduling a Tour
We find it very informative for potential clients to tour the campus. Our programming provides a unique mix of modalities to assist our clients in regaining access back into society. A tour also allows family members, case managers, guardians, and anything other vitals members of the client support team time to address any additional concerns and/or ask additional questions regarding the programming. We strongly recommend a tour of our homes; which may occur at any time during the admission process.
Step 4: After Admission
After admission, clients will be set with an intake date to the program; move in with be assisted by the program and the client’s support team. An intake meeting will take place on the day of ‘move in’, this will entail signing required documentation, establishing local providers, providing a position of contentment within the home. After the intake United Chapters Living, Inc. will be able to provide a comprehensive Care Plan and Treatment Plan. We will consider your diagnosis from your current provider and, with your permission, will seek input from family, current therapists, psychiatrists and other health providers.
