If you or a loved one are ready to take a step towards mental health, please take these steps…
Begin The Hope Counseling Intake Process
Get in touch with one of our Hope Counseling intake specialists to begin the process or get more information. We are here to help.
Intake varies from 24 hours to 2 weeks depending on the time needed to very documents or if detox is needed. In processing an application, we consider:
- Willingness of the applicant to participate in the program/interest in changing
- Mental health/medications
- Medical condition/medications
- Legal status, past and present
- Outstanding warrants
- Funding eligibility
- Level of care required
- Location or residency
Please note that we are a voluntary program and not a lock-down facility. The client needs to want to be here. They need to admit to us that they have a problem and want help.
Intake Step One
A Willingness and Desire to Get Help!
The applicant must be willing to invest the needed time (usually a year) and effort into their life to finally get freedom and mental health. We must hear willingness from the applicant to get help, and that cannot come from friends or relatives. Remember, much of the cost of the applicant’s one year stay at one of our centers is covered by donations from the community and we have limited beds, so we need to make sure every applicant is prepared for the challenge.
Call or fill in the inquiry form to begin the process. If it appears that the program may be a good fit for the individual, we will direct you to our Application to download and fill in.
Fill in the Online Application (create an account and follow the steps here: https://crm.bestnotes.com/portal/tcof). Once the application is received, our Intake Counselors will connect with the Applicant to make further arrangements, including financial commitments and attending a medical detox, if needed. Please note that will not make repeated attempts to reach the Applicant. In most cases we will leave it to the Applicant to connect with us at a specific day and time or to visit the center. Should they fail to do that, the application may be denied. Follow-thru is all seen as part of the Applicant’s willingness and desire to attend the program.
