Family Entering Muir Wood Adolescent and Family Services

Muir Wood Rehab Admissions Process

Please call us at 866-705-0828 to speak with an experienced admissions specialist who will take the time to listen carefully to your needs.

Our staff has been working with adolescents for over 25 years and many are recognized as experts in the field of adolescent substance abuse, behavioral health, and teen individual therapy. We are committed to helping you and your family find the best possible treatment for your teen and will work collaboratively with you throughout the admissions process.

Our mission statement at Muir Wood reads, “Through compassion and integrity we inspire ourselves and others to find meaning and purpose in our lives so that we can be of service and a catalyst for positive and lasting change.”

What to Expect During the Rehab Admissions Process

Our highly trained staff will guide you through the rehab admissions process and help your family begin the process of healing. When you call Muir Wood you will speak with one of the professionals on our treatment team. We will spend as much time with you as you need and discuss all the available Muir Wood treatment options for your child. 

Sometimes, your teen may not meet the criteria set forth by our residential treatment application.  Our belief is to admit kids at a level of care where they can best succeed. If we feel that your child would benefit from another program or perhaps a less intensive program, we will help you find the level of care that is most appropriate. Our goal is simple, to “be of service and a catalyst for positive and lasting change.”

Exceptional, Accessible Care

Adolescent mental health disorders are complicated conditions that affect every aspect of teen life and identity. Successfully treating these disorders requires comprehensive and coordinated care delivered by experienced, compassionate professionals. Providing this level of care requires significant time, resources, and support. Muir Wood was founded on the mission to make exceptional care available to more families by being an in-network provider.

What You Need to Know About The Admissions Process At Muir Wood

The first step in the rehab admissions process is to speak with a professional from our treatment team. At this time, we will ask you a number of questions about the specific issues confronting your family and walk you through the intake assessment. This comprehensive screening may include discussions with our Clinical Director, Medical Director, Psychiatrist, Academic Director, or other treatment team members. 

We also strongly suggest that parents visit the campus of Muir Wood if possible prior to making a decision to admit their child. This allows parents an opportunity to meet the clinical team that will be working directly with the family, tour the campus, and meet the other teens currently enrolled in the program. We know that rehab admission can be a very difficult time for parents. We welcome parents to meet every member of the team and answer any questions they have.

Admission Criteria For Residential Treatment

Muir Wood is committed to specialized care that is tailored to every teen and family’s needs.  That’s why prior to treatment, we ask our prospective clients to meet certain criteria for residential treatment.  During the rehab admissions phase, we will ask for your insurance information which can be easily submitted through our website.  We are an in-network provider, therefore, insurance accepted for adolescent rehab shouldn’t pose issues if you have a plan through most major carriers such as Aetna, Cigna, Anthem and others.  

Once we verify your insurance, teen rehab through Muir Wood is yet to be determined, as we need to assess your teen’s requirement for care. We do this by assigning one of our licensed therapists to speak with you and/or a referring specialist to determine if your child’s condition meets the criteria for Muir Wood residential treatment.  

After conducting a clinical assessment with you or referring professional, and determining your child is a suitable fit for our residential treatment services, we will then schedule an admission for your teen. This involves clarifying details on drug rehab admissions, or other types of treatment your teen will need during his or her stay.  It also involves communicating closely with you – informing you what to expect, when the next available treatment session will take place for your teen, how to plan an intervention if necessary and guidance on how to transport your teen to our campus.

Why Receiving Help Works

Left to manifest without treatment, substance use disorders and mental disharmonies can become all-consuming for your child.  Seeking help is critical to providing your teen with the most promising future possible.  Any investment in your teen’s mental health wellbeing is the best investment you can make for his or her safety, wellbeing, happiness, and personal fulfillment.  If your child is struggling, please don’t wait to seek treatment.  

We’ve seen first hand how qualified, comprehensive treatment can be transformative and revolutionary for troubled teens. We’ve also witnessed how ongoing aftercare such as AA teens meetings, and support sessions can manifest long-lasting positive reinforcement and results.  Give your child the best chance to be the bright, shining being he or she is by getting help for your teen today.
