Admissions

What to expect during the intake process:
Upon admission JSAS HealthCare staff conducts a comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment to identify the appropriate treatment plan for each individual. Patients meet with a trained addiction counselor, nurse, HIV specialist and a physician. During this process, a physical and biopsychosocial assessment are completed to determine if Medication-Assisted Treatment is right for a person and which medication is right for the person. All patients must bring two forms of identification, one of which must be a picture ID.
