Our client intake process is the same regardless of which program an individual is assigned to by the court. Most clients are with us for at least 6 months. The intake process usually takes up to 3 hours and includes the following steps:
Once the sentencing Judge has placed the offending individual into a Hay House program, the staff will inform her/him of the following:
- House Rules
- Drug Screening Policy
- Community Service
- Release of Information
- Residential requirements
During the intake phase, each client must undergo psychological evaluation, alcohol/drug evaluation, and a PREA Evaluation. Additionally, educational/vocational testing will be conducted to give us an accurate profile of each client’s history, aptitude and specific recovery needs.
When the intake process is complete, the clients will be allowed to contact their families for needed clothing and personal hygiene items. The Behavioral Contract will be explained in detail and specify the requirements for successful completion of the program. The House Rules are binding and failure to adhere to the House Rules or Behavior Contract may lead to revocation and dismissal from the Hay House Program.
