Admissions Criteria

When you call our admissions staff, your call will always be strictly confidential. We have extensive experience conducting evaluations of individuals whose lives have been negatively altered by substance abuse. Our specially trained admissions staff is equipped to speak with the individual interested in treatment or family members who would like to discuss admitting a loved one.

We maintain a specific set of admission criteria to ensure that each person who is treated at Blue Ridge receives the most appropriate and effective treatment available. To be considered for admission to residential treatment at Blue Ridge, an individual should meet the following criteria:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • exhibit symptoms of substance use disorder (alcoholism or drug addiction)

While the staff at our residential treatment center are well trained to meet the needs of individuals with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, some factors will exclude a person from admission, including:

  • acute psychotic disorders which prevent the individual from participation in the residential treatment program structure, including group, individual, family and experiential therapies
  • other symptoms or medical complications that may prevent an individual’s full participation in treatment, or require more intensive medical care than we feel we can provide

At Blue Ridge, we are committed to ensuring each individual who contacts us receives the most appropriate care for their individual needs. As such, after the evaluation, our admissions staff may recommend detoxification treatment, inpatient treatment, or our outpatient treatment program.

In order to determine whether Blue Ridge is the best fit for your specific difficulties or those of a loved one, please contact our admissions department. We’re here 24 hours a day 7 days a week to speak with you, answer any questions you may have and arrange for a free confidential assessment.
