assistance programs, and private insurance companies. The circumstances involved in a
client’s decision to seek treatment can be complex and multi-dimensional, and it is the
role of the Admissions Department to facilitate a smooth transition of the client into

focus on the immediate needs of the client and work with the client, the family, and
referral sources to determine the appropriate level of service for each person. The

admissions department and utilizes standardized measurement tools that provide a
comprehensive assessment of the client’s substance abuse problem and history. The
Admissions department also provides a brief intervention service for clients who
require assistance with various psycho-social issues prior to admission.
