What to Expect

When You Call

During your first call, you will be connected with one of our intake specialists. The intake specialist is prepared to answer any of your questions. Most folks ask about whether or not they need treatment, what level of care we offer and location and financial questions.

The intake specialist will be able to connect you with intervention services, set you up with a tour, schedule an assessment and also verify your insurance. If you are not a great fit for us the intake specialist will also refer you to one of our partners, or other resources to point you in the right direction. It is always helpful to have your insurance card ready so we can quickly verify your benefits.

Admissions Process

Once we verify your insurance benefits and learn more about your situation the admission process will begin. Depending on the outcome of your assessment you may be referred to detox (heavy alcohol, or benzodiazepine use). However, in most cases, we can detox you at The Ridge. You will then show up to our main office in Milford Ohio meet with our intake coordinator sign some paperwork and head up to experience The Ridge.
