For Patients & Families

Admissions process for families

The admission process is the easier part of beginning the recovery process. The toughest step is making the call; the subsequent admissions and treatment process is a matter of putting one foot in front of the other. Here at Sovereign Health, we understand that you’ve entrusted your loved one into our capable hands. We know that for many if recovery doesn’t “stick” there may not be another chance. That is why we make the treatment process as clear and concise as possible. At Sovereign Health, we ensure that the admission process is both smooth and insightful.

During our pre-admissions assessment over the phone, patients are asked to provide a full history of their background, symptoms and circumstantial behavior, so that the clinical team can customize treatment and create an individualized program for each of our clients. Some patients may want to withhold details they find embarrassing, but this only impedes the recovery process and raises the risk of incomplete treatment and relapse. For the best chance at a complete recovery, it’s important to be completely honest.

Since mental health and addiction-related disorders do not just disrupt an individual’s life but also affect an entire family, our admission process seeks to involve a client’s family to ensure long-lasting benefits to an individual in their overall recovery process.

Patient assessment

Next, we conduct multiple assessments of our patients’ intellectual strengths and weaknesses, as well as a personality test. This is called the biopsychosocial assessment. We observe a prospective patient’s habits and behavior, which helps the treatment team at Sovereign Health to create a treatment plan specific to a client’s need and requirement.

Finally, every patient receives a full medical checkup. During the medical assessment, the physician asks about any pre-existing conditions and any other conditions that may run in the family to make provisions for any potential complications.

Time for admission

After the assessment, we set an admission date for the patient to begin treatment. It’s good for loved ones to be present during this time for moral support, as this moment of realization is typically where the patient’s anxiety heightens. Being present for the admission date also provides a family with the opportunity to see what goes on at Sovereign Health.

Sovereign Health offers a streamlined insurance paperwork process for all its patients and accepts most private insurance plans. In order to reduce stress and retain a person’s desire for treatment, billing and insurance are taken care of while the patient is getting treated.

At Sovereign Health, experts provide assistance to deal with the admission process and our patient advocates – known elsewhere as case managers – act as the vital link between patients and families and will be the Sovereign representative who families will speak to, primarily, throughout recovery.

By far, admission is the most detailed component of the treatment. This is where we complete paperwork, compile insurance information, and review house rules, procedures and the daily regimen of treatment with the client and his/her family. We encourage the client’s family to ask questions that might arise during this time.

Intake process

Intake concludes admission. This is where we complete the patient’s treatment plan, answer all remaining questions, and allow loved ones to go their way – practicing self-care and living their own best life – while rehabilitation takes place for the patient, reassuringly, in Sovereign’s arms.

Depending on what hour the patient arrives, he or she may take lunch or participate in remaining group activities for that day. The patient will meet Sovereign Health staff and the other patients in recovery during intake as well.

Treatment process

No matter the type of drug, detoxification treatment at a medical facility is always the safest choice while treating addiction-related disorders, especially when they are accompanied by co-occurring mental health illnesses. Owing to a drug’s addictive nature and severe withdrawal symptoms, an inpatient detox program provides 24-hour medical assistance and ongoing medical monitoring. Post a successful detox, patients should be enrolled in an addiction treatment program that continues to build on relapse prevention tools, coping mechanisms, healthy habits and much more.

Basis a client’s individual needs, the treatment team at Sovereign Health provides a range of clinical, evidence-based therapies such as Individual, group and family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and neurofeedback along with experiential therapies including, yoga, meditation and expressive arts therapy.

The dual diagnosis program was what attracted me to Sovereign Health. My therapist was always open for discussion and the group sessions were very informative and educational.
