First Steps for Admission
The first step in the admission process is a phone call with our Director or Assistant Director. During this call, we will answer any questions you might have about Spruce Mountain Inn. We will also ask you to share information about your situation and treatment needs.
During the initial phone consultation, we will be able to assess if moving forward with the next step makes sense for you. Moving forward with the admission process will involve gathering clinical records (e.g. psychological assessments, clinical summaries, discharge summaries). We also find it helpful to speak with your current treatment provider(s).
Final Steps for Admission
The final step in the admissions process is an interview with our Director or Assistant Director. These interviews can happen in person when you visit us for a tour, or we will meet via video-conference. This meeting is an opportunity for you to ask questions about our program and prepares you for what to expect. We will also ask you questions about your goals in coming to Spruce Mountain Inn.
If everyone agrees that Spruce Mountain Inn is the appropriate program for you, we will begin looking at possible admission dates and begin the process of completing admissions paperwork, arranging financial details, and attending to other details in preparation for your arrival.
Thank you for supporting me in my journey and all the difficulties I have had. You all have taught me a lot, especially self-care maintenance and self-expression. You helped me learn to respect myself and feel that I am worthy.
It is my great pleasure to thank you for the support you provided my daughter in her struggle to become a happy and functional adult. Because of your belief in fostering the human spirit, you made it possible for T. to find her own strength and define her personal weaknesses. You were there to encourage, support and nudge her to continue the tough road to recovery.
Yours is one of the few programs I have recommended without having first seen it, just based on the strength of your reputation. I am even more ready to use you now.
