New Admissions Process

Start the Admissions Process

You may reach an Admissions Counselor (this e-mail box is monitored by several staff) Monday-Friday, between 8am - 5pm, our normal business hours. However, we frequently respond to after business hours voicemails and e-mails whenever possible.

Your Initial Call

Contact Project Transition's Admissions Department to establish an initial point of contact to ensure the services we provide are in line with the needs you have, and the challenges you are facing. Our Admissions team will describe our residential opportunities, as well as the expectations and commitment of the daily program and average length of stay. Everything we do is member driven, and person-centered in nature. It is the Admissions Department's goal to determine a preliminary fit between the services we provide and what you are looking for.

Our goal is to establish a foundational relationship with you prior to your point of admission.

Complete the Preadmission Packet

We will provide you with a copy of our preadmission packet, guide you on how initiate a referral from your provider or case worker to your insurance company, schedule your preclinical assessments, and take you on a tour of the recovery center and residential living. We are also here to answer all questions you may have along the way.

Schedule Tour and Preadmission Assessments

If able, you will visit the Project Transition Recovery Center where you will participate in your therapeutic and clinical treatment, as well as tour the apartment complex you will possibly reside in. Your assessments will include a variety of screens that will determine your fit for the program, level of care needed, and plans for member-centered treatment upon admisssion.
