Admissions

From the first phone call to scheduling an assessment, our admissions team is ready to help. Discover how to begin your journey at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital.

Helping You Through the Admissions Process

Prospective patients can begin the admissions process in a number of ways, including an in-house assessment (available 24/7), mobile assessment, professional referral, or self-referral.

Individuals can initiate the self-referral process by speaking with one of our intake coordinators on the phone to ask questions and/or to schedule an assessment, or they may come to our facility and receive an assessment on a walk-in basis.

When a prospective patient arrives, he or she will complete an intake evaluation form, and meet with one of our knowledgeable and qualified intake coordinators who will provide an initial assessment. The prospective patient will be asked to describe the presenting concerns, share details of his or her health history, and provide any other information necessary to make an appropriate decision regarding a treatment plan.

Our staff member will then review the assessment with one of our physicians in order to determine which level of care will be of most benefit to the patient’s specific needs. Once a determination has been made, the intake coordinator will present the recommendations, and if appropriate, will assist the patient in beginning the admissions process to our facility.
