Admissions Process for Our Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Programs

At Harmony Place, we always want you to feel comfortable and secure with our processes and procedures. Here’s how we will get you started on the path to your sober future, and how you will eventually progress to life after treatment.

Our intake planning and admissions process will ensure your drug or alcohol addiction treatment program is the right fit for you. We work with you, your doctor, your family and anyone else who has been involved in your decision to enter into addiction rehab. Together, we will determine which plan of action is the best for you and your specific needs. We will carefully gather information and work closely with your insurance company, as well.

Our admissions and treatment planning services include:

  • An initial consultation along with a comprehensive assessment
  • A professional, detailed diagnostic with in-depth treatment planning
  • A streamlined, custom intake process
  • Financial planning, with insurance coverage coordination

We will work with you and your family on every detail to make certain that you fully understand your chosen treatment program, what to expect, and the next steps.

Going Home After Treatment

Harmony Place: Discharge Process

Our discharge planning and aftercare services are invaluable to clients’ ongoing sobriety. Recovery requires a continuum of care, beginning with residential care and progressing into sober living and outpatient services.

Discharge planning begins soon after your arrival at Harmony Place. When you are ready to be discharged from our drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, you will already have an array of support services in place and ready to use.

Your primary team and our discharge specialist will coordinate your discharge planning and aftercare services. Discharge services often integrate:

  • Prescheduled first appointment with new treatment team or physician
  • Sober living housing
  • Seamless transfers into the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Introduction to 12-step and other social support groups
  • Connection to primary care physician

We’ll stay in contact with you on a pre-scheduled basis after discharge, in order to ensure that your aftercare plan is working and to check in on you and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Harmony Place Admissions FAQs

Learn even more about our admissions process by browsing through the frequently asked questions below:

Is detox included in the program?

Harmony Place provides sub-acute detoxification. When it is determined that a client is medically safe to detox in our residential setting, we will initiate detox protocols. This usually reduces any transition time between detox and treatment. We want the entire healing process to be as seamless as possible.

Does your facility include mental health services?

Mental health disorders frequently accompany substance use disorders. Major depression, bipolar disorders, dysthymia, generalized anxiety, social anxiety and PTSD are some of the more common mental health disorders treated at Harmony Place. Our clients are evaluated by a psychiatrist and other health care practitioners. Our therapists are licensed and experienced not only with addiction, but in the treatment of most mental health disorders.

Are family members involved in the addiction treatment process? If so, how?

Research suggests that family therapy often provides the needed support to improve treatment compliance. Repressed feelings and fears can be expressed and the potential for reconciliation may be realized.

Harmony Place encourages family members to be highly involved in the client’s recovery process. When deemed clinically appropriate, family members will be encouraged to participate in family therapy here.

Our program curriculum includes a weekly Multi-Family Group. We strongly encourage family members to attend as often as possible. Not only is it important for the family to understand addiction and its effects on their loved one, but they will benefit by understanding the impact it has had on them.

Family members often sacrifice their own self-care. They may need to develop their own support system to navigate through any fear, fatigue, control, distrust and skepticism they may experience while caring for the addict.
