Those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction often want to get treatment but feel wary of contacting an admissions counselor to begin the process. If you or a loved one is considering rehab, knowing what to expect during addiction treatment admissions can ease your anxiety. Fortunately, to support your intent, we make the process comfortable and informative. As a result, this can allow you to transition into getting the help you need knowing we will be there every step of the way.
Rehab Intake and Assessment Process
Your intake begins when you first contact Phoenix Rising Recovery. First, we will begin the process on the phone by asking you some initial questions. This will allow us to anticipate your needs when you arrive. Then after this, we will then discuss what programs we have available and which ones will work best for you. Lastly, we will answer any questions you may have during that time as well.
We will advise you on what items to pack for your trip, including types of clothing and other personal items. From there, we will let you know our policy on items such as prescription and over-the-counter medications, smoking accessories, and personal electronics.
Once you arrive here, we will then engage in a more formal intake and assessment. At this time, an admissions representative will ask you questions to determine the degree and scope of your addiction. Furthermore, we will inquire about things like the length of the addiction, which substances are involved, and how much of them are typically consumed as well.
We do not intend for these questions to intimidate or embarrass you. Instead, your answers will guide us in tailoring a treatment program that will best meet your needs. Moreover, our admissions team is comprised of professional, compassionate experts who understand you have an illness and need comprehensive help.
The admissions process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.
All in all, this may seem like a lengthy process, but it’s essential we do not rush things. Hence, by taking our time and getting to know you, we are better able to provide you with the type of treatment that will help you achieve sobriety.
What Happens After Rehab Admissions?
Following intake, we will collect insurance information and have you complete some initial paperwork. After this, a staff member will then escort you to our medical detox facility. To add, for security purposes, we may also perform a search of your belongings. From there, our personnel will deposit any unauthorized items such as cigarettes, lighters, and weapons, for example into a safe marked with your name. Last but not least we will provide you with an opportunity to retrieve those items upon discharge.
Upon arrival at detox, you’ll meet with medical personnel who will work to make you as comfortable as possible. They may do this by providing medication, extra blankets, ice, and other things to provide physical comfort. We will also make sure to offer the compassion and support we have for everyone we treat. Thus, our goal is to help you feel cared for and supported throughout your stay with us.
Each person progresses through detox differently, so there isn’t one specific amount of time everyone’s stay lasts. Our clients generally remain in detox anywhere from three to ten days. Factors that influence the timeline include the length and severity of the addiction and any withdrawal symptoms that occur. We make sure you have safely completed detox in full before moving on to the next step in treatment.

Addiction Treatment Programs Following Admission
Following admission to our Palm Springs facility, you may take part in a number of programs designed to move you along the road to recovery. We recommend programs based in part on your answers to intake questions. However, we also know that it isn’t possible to predict which programs will work based on an interview alone. Accordingly, we monitor your progress and individual needs, which allows us to adjust your treatment plan along the way to provide you with the best possible results.
Some of the programs we offer here at Phoenix Rising include:
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- Outpatient Program
- Sober Living Program
- Dual diagnosis treatment
- Extended Care Program
When you get to these programs, your initial anxiety over admissions will have subsided, and you will have completely detoxed from all substances. By that time, you’ll be ready to fully embrace sobriety and are more likely to remain focused on your goal. Our team of addiction specialists will provide encouragement and guidance throughout, so you are never left alone through the process.
Once you complete your treatment with us, we will recommend any steps for you to take next. By the time you leave, you will have reached a strong point in recovery and know exactly where you are headed next.
