Assessment Information

I know I need help, but I'm not sure I need to be in the hospital. Where do I start? What are my choices?

Not everyone needs to be in the hospital. Ridgeview offers a variety of treatment options, including inpatient and outpatient programs. Our counselors will help you sort out the problems you're having and find the help you need. If treatment is advised, they can assist you with admission to a Ridgeview program or recommend other treatment options in the community.

The first step in determining whether you need treatment is to meet with an Access Center counselor for an assessment. The counselor will discuss the problems you're having at this time and ask you questions related to the nature of your problems. The purpose of the assessment is to evaluate your physical, psychological and emotional health, and provide you with options.

Ridgeview's Access Center provides free assessment and referral services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may schedule an appointment for an assessment or we can see you on an emergency walk-in basis.

Your assessment will take approximately 60-90 minutes. Although we make every attempt to honor appointment times, there are occasions when we must prioritize emergencies. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
