Finding the right treatment for yourself or child can be a stressful experience. Understanding that the process can be challenging, we strive to make the admissions process at YRC as clear, concise and easy as possible. Below you will find a step-by-step process to give you an idea of our admissions process.
Step 1:To begin the process, we recommend calling Amy Levenson, YRC Admissions Counselor to find out if YRC is the next best step for the youth. 970-384-7484. During that call, we will help determine if all the criteria for admission can be met.
Step 2. Once we review this process, we will ask you to download all the intake paperwork. The youth must fill out all the designated client forms as well as sign the Release of information if they are 15 or older.
Please be sure to list ALL professionals that are involved with the youth so that we may send out the Release (ROI) and obtain their clinical, legal or other history that for review.
Step 3: Once the YRC file is completed, we will inform you of our next available bed date. Please be aware that this can range from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the number of referrals we receive. The sooner we receive all of the paperwork, the sooner we can assign a date.
Step 4: Several days before the actual admission date, someone from the team will contact you to set up a telephone interview with the youth. We understand that sometimes they are not living at home, and we can call them wherever they are. The interview itself takes about 90 minutes. Normally, the admission date is a few days after the interview, and we ask that on that specific day you arrive at 12:30.
We recommend printing out our information packet which contains directions as well as our belongings list. We are strict about adherence to this list, so please do not bring anything not listed.
As always, we are here to help and guide you. Do not hesitate to call with questions or concerns. We are excited to work with teens and families ready to make the step to inpatient treatment.
