Admissions

At Sierra at Scottsdale Outpatient Care, we want to ensure that the admissions process goes as smoothly as possible so that you can receive the treatment you need without delay. When it comes to behavioral health concerns, the last thing you want is to have to navigate insurance, treatment options and an admissions process alone. Our team is here to answer any questions you might have as you get started.

Our Admissions Criteria

Sierra at Scottsdale will provide treatment for adults age 18 and older of all genders who are struggling with mental health concerns such as: 

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Mood disorders 
  • Eating disorders 

 Sierra at Scottsdale will also provide treatment for individuals who have co-occurring substance use disorders.  

Our team will work with each person to determine if they meet the criteria for admission to treatment at Sierra at Scottsdale and which level of care will be the most beneficial. Depending on the amount of support needed, clients may begin care in our partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP). If we believe that a different level of care or another facility would be more beneficial, we will provide the appropriate referral.  

The Admissions Process

The first step in the admissions process is to call our admissions coordinator. During that call, you will take part in an assessment that allows us to gather information about your: 

  • Medical history 
  • Current medications 
  • Mental health history  
  • Goals for treatment  

 The admissions coordinator will forward the results of this assessment to our team of clinicians, who will then work with you to determine which level of care will best meet your needs. 

Once our team has ensured that Sierra at Scottsdale is right for you, someone will contact you to discuss entering our PHP or IOP and payment options. They can help you navigate your insurance, answer any questions you have and set a date for your treatment to begin.  

Starting Your Sierra at Scottsdale Experience

At Sierra at Scottsdale, we are dedicated to making sure that your experience with us is a unique one. We have an expert team made up of psychologists, psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, addiction counselors and registered dietitians. Each staff member will contribute to personalizing your treatment plan to address your specific concerns and goals.  

As soon as you begin the admissions process, your team will start planning your aftercare to ensure a smooth transition out of treatment or to your next program. Continuing care is an important part of treatment, and we will continue to evaluate and update your customized plan as your needs change. 

If you have any questions about the admissions process or our services, you can contact our team at any time. One of our compassionate staff members is available 24/7 to take your call and guide you through the process.
