The Landing’s drug & alcohol addiction treatment for men is rooted in a science-based, research-supported clinical model to ensure a healthier, more satisfying life, without addiction.
Admissions Process Overview
At The Landing, we understand that choosing to enter residential treatment for a substance use disorder can be a difficult and stressful decision. We appreciate the strength and courage of each person who makes the choice to get help, and we are dedicated to providing a superior customer service experience at every step of the treatment experience.
In most cases, a client’s initial interaction with us involves the admission process. Our objective with this process is twofold:
- Getting the client into treatment as effectively and efficiently as possible.
- Ensuring a stress- and frustration-free experience for the client and his loved ones
Steps in the Process
The first step of the admissions process is completing an assessment to determine if The Landing is the ideal placement for the prospective client. Pre-admission assessments for The Landing will be conducted by either a member of our nursing staff or one of our certified clinicians. These assessments can be scheduled during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In cases of emergencies, our parent program, Sober Living by the Sea, is capable of conducting assessments and facilitating admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In order for an individual to be eligible for treatment at The Landing, he must meet the following criteria:
- Age 18 and above
- Primary diagnosis of substance use disorder
We are also capable of providing care for men whose primary substance use disorder is accompanied by certain co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and mild-to-moderate bipolar disorder. The presence and severity of these disorders will be discussed during the pre-admissions assessment. If the assessment reveals that the prospective client would be better served at another program, our personnel will work with the prospective client and his or her family members or referring professional to identify other treatment options.
In addition to determining whether or not an individual meets our admissions criteria, the assessment process will also identify the type and level of care that he or she needs. For example, men who are still actively using their substances of abuse will be place in our detox program where they can go through the withdrawal process in a safe medically monitored environment, and then seamlessly transition into residential rehab. New clients who do not need to detox can enter treatment directly at the residential rehab level.
Benefits of Our Admissions Process
The assessment and admissions process will also enable us to identify other professionals with whom the new client has been working, so that we can get the release of information permission that will allow us to coordinate care. We will also address the cost of treatment during the admissions process, and can contact the client’s insurance provider to ensure that the client receives all of the insurance benefits to which he is entitled.
Throughout the assessment and admissions processes, prospective clients and their family members can rest assured that they will be working with knowledgeable and friendly staff members who will be focused on providing superior customer service while ensuring that the client gets the help that he needs.
