New Admissions Process

Start the Admissions Process

Contact our Admissions Department via email 24/7 or call our office at (215) 997-9959, Monday - Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

If You Are Currently Hospitalized

  • Immediately provide Project Transition's contact information to your case worker and request they speak to our Admissions Team to learn how to make a referral. 

If the referral is approved before you are discharged, you may be assessed by our clinical team for readiness to enter the Project Transition Program at the hospital, or if permitted, you may come to do a tour and assessments at the recovery center.

If You Are Currently in the Community (not hospitalized)

If you are not hospitalized and currently living at home, with supports, in a shelter, or homeless you can do the following:

  • If you are a CBH Member: download a copy of the Project Transition/CBH referral form and provide it to your social worker, case manager (or ICM), outpatient provider (ie: psychiatrist). Ask your provider to contact Project Transition and speak to our Admissions Team to learn next steps.

  • If you are a CCBH-Berks Member: download a copy of the Project Transition/CCBH referral form and provide it to your social worker, case manager (or ICM), outpatient provider (ie: psychiatrist). Ask your provider to contact Project Transition and speak to our Admissions Team to learn next steps.

  • If you are a BlueCare or United Member: have your social worker, case manager (or ICM), or outpatient provider (ie: psychiatrist) to contact Project Transition Admissions or you may contact us directly to schedule assessments and a tour. 

  • If you are interested in paying privately, contact Admissions for a copy of the Member Financial Agreement. If paying out of pocket, a referral submission to the health insurance provider is not needed.

Regardless of insurance, you must complete a pre-admission packet (download the packet for Pennsylvania or Tennessee) and return it to Project Transition.

Members in Pennsylvania (with an approved referral) visit the program for a tour and pre-admission assessments. Tennessee Members do not require a referral from the insurance company to tour the recovery center and be assessed for readiness.
