Our Intake Process
Step 2: Get Assessed
The assessments consist of a complete medical assessment to determine your immediate behavioral health needs. If appropriate, after the medical evaluation, an American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) assessment is completed. The ASAM assessment criteria factors in six dimensions to “create a holistic, biopsychosocial assessment of an individual to be used for service planning and treatment across all services and levels of care.”
Step 3: Get You Connected
WestCare has multiple funding sources, and we do not turn individuals away for the inability to pay for services (some funding sources may have a waiting list).
For those currently connected to insurance, we accept Medicaid, SilverSummit, Anthem, Cigna, Molina, and Fee for Service, some private insurances, or you may also self-pay. If you are not currently enrolled for Medicaid but are eligible, we will assist you with enrolment.
Step 4: The Program Offerings
Based on your assessment results, the appropriate level of care will be recommended, which could include Community Triage Center (CTC), our Community Involvement Center (CIC Outpatient), or residential treatment. WestCare offers a full continuum of services and will work with you on the appropriate stepdown levels of care as needed. If you require immediate care, such as withdrawal management, you will be admitted into the CTC.
