How do I get admitted?
Admissions can be easily arranged by contacting one of our Admissions Coordinators at 1-888-302-5580. They can assist with insurance verifications and payment questions. A pre-admission screening over the phone is required prior to admission. This usually takes 10-20 minutes. This pre-screening may raise issues that will require the submission of medical records prior to admission. Barring special circumstances, admissions can easily be arranged within the same day as your original phone call.

The length of stay is determined by the individual client’s clinical need. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all situation and therefore length of stay cannot be easily determined prior to admission.

SCW clients are introduced to 12 step meetings while in treatment. Meetings are brought on campus and clients are also brought to meetings in the outside recovery community. Attendance at meetings is considered to be a part of the client’s treatment plan. Any bias about 12-step programs or meetings should be discussed with your therapist; all feelings are valid and will be respected.
