Admissions Process

The admissions process at Spring Mountain always begins with a thorough mental health assessment, completed by a licensed and trained clinician from our Admissions and Referrals staff.

Assessment & Admissions

After the assessment is done, the patient’s result will be reviewed by the intake clinician and the attending physician. They’ll make a recommendation for the appropriate program and level of care for the patient, and help the patient complete the remainder of the admissions process, which include filling out demographic paperwork (age, medical history, etc.), undergoing a clinical assessment, completing a physical exam and more.

Patient privacy is of the utmost importance to our staff. Upon admission, each patient is given a patient confidentiality number that acts as a code, allowing the staff to acknowledge that the patient is at our hospital when visitors or doctors seek information. If a patient wants information about their treatment shared with anyone, the patient must sign an Authorize to Disclose form to facilitate the sharing of any such information. Learn more about that release process by clicking here.
