When you are in a state of crisis, it is crucial to get professional care as quickly as possible. At River Place Behavioral Health, we have a streamlined admissions process that is fast and efficient, ensuring that our patients can access our services with minimal delay.
Our Admissions Process
At River Place Behavioral Health, we recognize how intimidating it can be to seek professional help for a mental health concern. Taking those first steps is often challenging, but it can also be life–changing.
Finding the optimal services for your needs can be an overwhelming process. When you contact our intake department, you will speak with a team member who is not only knowledgeable, but also compassionate. We genuinely care, and we make your comfort a priority from our very first conversation.
During your initial call, you will complete an assessment that will allow our team to determine whether our services can help you achieve the most beneficial outcome. If we believe that our inpatient programming is a good fit, we will arrange for you to come to our hospital to complete a more thorough assessment.
A registered nurse or master’s–level social worker or therapist conducts these on-site assessments. During this process, our team gains a more in-depth understanding of your presenting concerns, the challenges you are facing, and your recovery goals.
After completing an on-site assessment, a team member will contact one of our physicians to get admission confirmation. If we determine that you do not require inpatient care, we will provide appropriate referrals for outpatient services.
We make all admissions decisions at River Place Behavioral Health on a case-by-case basis. That said, there are some general criteria you must meet to be eligible to receive inpatient services.
- Patient must be an adolescent age 13-17 or an adult age 18 or older.
- Patient must have a primary diagnosis of a mental health disorder that requires acute stabilization.
- Patient must be able to participate in group therapy sessions.
We also provide care for patients who are struggling with a substance use disorder that co-occurs with a mental health concern.
Because the key to getting proper care centers on receiving support that is tailored to meet your needs, our staff will discuss our programming options with you before you enter inpatient treatment so that you can make the best decisions for your health.
The Next Steps
To start your recovery journey, all you have to do is pick up the phone and call us. Our intake department is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer any questions you may have or to help you begin the admissions process.

Our caring and compassionate staff can contact your insurance provider to confirm your coverage and verify your benefits. If necessary, we can also request authorization to get records of previous treatment so that we have the fullest picture of your behavioral health needs.
