Admissions Process

It is helpful to understand what the admission process entails, what to bring and what not to bring. At 1000 Islands Addiction Rehab, we understand that making the decision to seek help for your addiction is not easy. As such, we ensure that our patients are well informed, understand the steps and are ready to start their healing journey.

Our Medical, Therapeutic and Program staff have world-class programs designed to provide a clear path to recovery. Each client’s medical history and situation is unique as are the treatment programs. Our number one priority is ensuring your well being and making sure you are properly assessed which is why upon arrival you will placed into medical care. Our Medical team and physicians will then supervise the client during the detox withdrawal process.

Once the client is medically cleared from detoxification they are then transferred to their room. Each client will then be fully assessed by our Physician and a specific treatment plan will be customized based on the individual patient.
From there our team of Therapeutic and Programming professionals take over to implement your recovery program:
