Admissions Process

Thank you for visiting our addiction treatment website. We hope that the addiction treatment information you have reviewed has been helpful for you as you make decisions about your care or the care of a loved one. For many, admitting that there is a problem and seeking help is the most difficult hurdle. We are here to help you every step of the way. We invite you to contact our highly trained admissions staff to answer any questions you may have and to begin the assessment process.

Verify Your Insurance Coverage

The Admissions and Assessment department at Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat is staffed with nurses and other qualified support staff. We are equipped to answer questions and address the concerns of each caller regarding chemical dependency, the detoxification process, medications, rehabilitation and extended care. We accept both insurance coverage and private pay. The Admissions staff will verify insurance coverage for appropriate benefits and obtain authorization upon admission.

The Admissions Process

For patients arriving from out of town, transportation is provided to and from the airport. We have preferred discount rate at the Hampton Inn for family members wishing to stay in the local area.

Upon arrival, patients are immediately assessed by a nurse. This assessment includes a thorough history of past and present medical problems, vital signs, a detailed history of substance abuse, family history, and current medications. Information from this assessment is immediately communicated to the physician, and treatment orders are received. All patients are seen by the physician within 24 hours of admission, and daily thereafter. The Admission staff is available to you during the complete admission process; please let us know how we can help.
