Admission Into A Hickory Treatment Center

Planning For Admission

We understand that deciding to seek residential treatment is often difficult. The process can seem both frightening and overwhelming.  Our team wants to ensure that the transition to our living facility is simple. Once you arrive on campus you will be greeted by our Intake Coordinator who will guide you step by step through our admission process. Once the Intake process is complete and the necessary paperwork has been signed, our staff will provide you with a tour of the Hickory Treatment Center amenities. You will be shown your room and will be introduced to our compassionate staff. After you’ve had an opportunity to settle in, a staff member will review our client handbook with you and answer any questions that you may have regarding your stay.

The safety of everyone in our facility is paramount. In order to accomplish this, you and a staff member will review your personal items to ensure that they are appropriate.  Your room has a safe, in which you may keep and store all personal items after review.

Your individualized treatment begins when you meet with your primary therapist to discuss your symptoms and treatment goals. You will have the opportunity to meet with each member of the treatment team to begin the development of your treatment plan.

You will work collaboratively with the treatment team during your stay to prepare your individualized discharge plan. Your involvement is crucial to the discharge planning process and of utmost importance to your successful recovery. Follow-up care is arranged and in place prior to your departure to ensure that you are fully connected to the recovery community in your hometown.
