admissions

Our trained counselors
are ready to help with
your admission.

We look forward to welcoming you or your loved one into one of our individualized programs at Hudson Behavioral Health. We understand that taking the steps to regain your life can be very stressful, so our admission process is designed with that in mind.

We offer a variable-length-of-stay program that uses a multi-disciplinary, evidence informed approach to educate patients about the Disease of Addiction and the tools necessary to establish and maintain sobriety.

Planning for Admissions

Step 1:

Call Us at 410-219-9000

The first step in the admissions process is to call to speak with an admissions representative. It is important that our Admissions Representative speak with the individual who is seeking admission into our program so that we can obtain accurate information regarding their substance use, medical and mental health disorders, and treatment history.

Withdrawal Management is a necessary first step for many patients. Because we individualize the treatment process to meet each person’s needs, patients will be closely monitored by medical staff during the period of withdrawal management. Current withdrawal management protocols are so effective at relieving physical withdrawal that most patients are able to engage in counseling and initiate the first steps into recovery during these first crucial days.

Step 2:

Schedule an In-Person Assessment

After checking your insurance benefits, you will be scheduled for a face-to-face assessment usually within a few days of your initial call. During this visit you are seen by our medical staff while the Assessment Counselor works with your managed care organization to get treatment authorized.

Step 3:

Arrival and Admission

Upon admission to Hudson Behavioral Health, you’ll have a chance to get settled in your room and will then receive an orientation and be immediately immersed in our therapeutic community.

Medications: All medications must be in their original bottles with proper labeling. Incorrectly bottled, mislabeled medications or misplaced medications that we are unable to refill could result in delayed admission.

Additional information: Patients are not permitted to drive themselves to our campus. You must have someone drive you to our campus on the day of your admission and should plan on obtaining transportation on the day of discharge. If you leave prior to completing our program you will be responsible for obtaining transportation on the day of discharge. For more information about admission into one of our programs, please call 410-219-9000.
