How to Start the Process
Checking into treatment is usually an emotional time. You are not alone. We’re here to help you understand the full process of getting treatment at Pride Institute.
INTAKE ASSESSMENT CALL
We need to hear from our patients. A loved one, friend, or therapist may make a referral, but we have to speak with the patient to start the admissions process. The 20-minute intake assessment call helps us gather information about what kind of help you’ll need from Pride Institute. This information is strictly confidential, even if you choose another treatment center.
If you are in need of an interventionist, Pride Institute has relationships with both local and national trusted sources. Contact us for recommendations.
CHECKING YOUR INSURANCE COVERAGE
After your assessment, we’ll verify benefits with your insurance company. It can be verified in just a few hours. There are instances where an insurance company will request a face-to-face assessment with a member of our admissions department, which we’ll help set up.

SCHEDULE YOUR ADMISSION
After the assessment is completed and insurance or payment has been secured, the next step is to call us to set up an admission/arrival time. Read our What to Bring page for more information about what to pack for treatment.
ARRIVING & GETTING SETTLED
After some initial paperwork, we’ll check you into a room, introduce you to your roommates and perform a routine search of your bags. The nurse will complete a health assessment with you, and within 72 hours you will meet with a member of the mental health counseling staff. Unless excused by our team, you’re required to attend groups once the admission process is complete.
