At Belmont Behavioral Hospital, we recognize how difficult it can be to make the decision to receive treatment for psychiatric concerns or substance abuse problems, which is why we strive to make the process one that flows as smoothly as possible. Additionally, we know that problems and crises can arise at any time of the day or night, which is why we are pleased to offer assessment and referral services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our Access Center is available to quickly schedule an evaluation and triage, typically within hours of receiving the initial phone call from a prospective patient, family member, or referral source.
Upon arrival at Belmont Behavioral Hospital, prospective patients will receive a thorough assessment in order to determine their specific needs and assess their presenting concerns.
The assessments at Belmont Behavioral Hospital will typically include the following:
- An examination of the prospective patient’s medical history, including any previous treatment that he or she may have received
- A complete psychiatric assessment to determine an appropriate clinical diagnosis
- A review for consideration of any possible medical complications
- A review of if, or when, the prospective patient may have last used drugs or alcohol
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted by one of our licensed social workers or psychologists, with psychiatrists available for consultation and further assessment, if necessary.
Treatment recommendations for each prospective patient are made based on the evaluation that occurs. Once an evaluation has been completed and treatment recommendations have been developed, the patient’s insurance company will be contacted in order to obtain authorization for appropriate services.
If you or your loved one is in need of comprehensive care in order to overcome behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric concerns, or to defeat a substance abuse problem, look no further than Belmont Behavioral Hospital. We are here to help individuals rediscover a renewed sense of wellbeing as they embark on the path to the brighter and happier futures they deserve.
