Pre-Intake Screening

Once you have decided to come to one of our Hope Rehab Centres, the next step of admission to rehab involves information gathering known as a “pre-intake screening,” usually conducted via phone. Pre-intake screening is often conducted during a potential patient’s initial phone call. Patients discuss pertinent information to help treatment providers determine what facility would be a good match for them and to determine which level of care is recommended for the patient. Caring and compassionate staff members create a connection early on as they learn:

  • About the patient’s drug history
  • The types of drugs abused
  • The length of time drugs were used
  • The patient’s treatment history
  • Any possible underlying mental or emotional disorders
  • Employment conditions
  • Family life
  • Legal issues
  • Any medical issues
  • Family history
  • History of trauma or abuse
  • History of psychiatric care
  • List of any current medications
  • Dietary Requirements
