Mental Health Program Admissions Process
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)
Are you currently receiving support via a partial hospital program, outpatient program, or ACT? Talk with your case manager or social worker, therapist or psychiatrist about our program. Have them contact our admissions team to discuss how to make a referral.
Your First Contact With Us
Admissions Department 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 program setting, living arrangements, expectations and commitment of the daily program, and average length of participation. Everything we do is member-driven and person-centered in nature. It is the Admissions Department’s goal to determine a fit between the services we provide and how they align with your needs and goals.
Complete the Pre-admission Packet
You’ll complete a pre-admission packet (download packet for Nashville or packet for Knoxville or download packet for PA) which you’ll return to us. The consents must be completed for every hospitalization or behavioral health provider you have history with, your parole or probation officer, and any supports in your life you want us to be able to speak to. You must also have a physical completed within the last six months.
Your pre-admission packet can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to (215) 220-2682.
