We are committed to making the intake process as streamlined as possible so that there are no unnecessary delays or lags in care that could jeopardize the health and safety of our prospective patients.
We know that crisis can take place at any time, and therefore we, at Longleaf, are committed to making sure that we are available when you need us most. Our intake staff is available around the clock to screen direct admissions, verify insurance information, and arrange for any necessary transportation for all patients prior to being admitted to our inpatient program. These services are available at no upfront charge to the patient, and we are here to ensure that the patient, his or her family, and the referral source are all fully acquainted with our services so that together we can determine if our treatment center will be the best fit for the patient. If, after reviewing the patient’s presenting concerns, we determine that this is an appropriate referral for admission, your patient can begin the inpatient program immediately.
Throughout the referral process and while the patient is engaging in care at Longleaf, we will make sure that you have all the additional information you need so that you are best able to provide the necessary supports once the patient exits our program. We know that the road to sustained recovery extends long after inpatient treatment comes to a close, and we prioritize effective aftercare planning throughout a patient’s time at Longleaf.
The admission staff at Longleaf strives to make the referral process as easy and straightforward as possible. We value the important role that all of our referral sources play in each patient’s treatment journey and understand that you care greatly for your patients. At Longleaf, our team believes that collaborative, wraparound support offers the greatest opportunity for patients to improve their lives for the long-term, and we look forward to working with you to help your patient achieve his or her goals for recovery.
