For over two decades, our admissions team has operated in the healthcare and treatment arenas. We understand the importance of finding and accessing the best quality care for you or your loved one. We know that, without expert help, finding the right treatment can cause anxiety and confusion.
At BTG, we strive to make the admissions process easy to understand and stress-free. We are available 24/7 to answer your questions and address your concerns. Call us today or fill out our online form. All forms of contact with Bridging the Gaps are confidential.
The second step of the admissions process is evaluation and assessment. Our team will work with you to understand more about your individual needs, including any mental health or substance abuse concerns. We take this step seriously as it is essential in providing a tailored treatment program that meets all of your specific needs.
During our pre-admissions evaluation, we will address:
The third step of our admissions process, which is usually associated with our pre-admissions evaluation, involves financial information and insurance verification.
We advocate for you to secure the most advantageous insurance rates to help you take advantage of our high-quality programs. We have excellent working relationships with most major insurers and historically secure high insurance reimbursement rates for the cost of treatment, no matter what course of treatment might be the best fit.
Once a financial plan is established, our team will develop your individualized treatment plan based on the results of your evaluation and assessment. We will work with you throughout the entire process to ensure that this treatment plan fits all of your needs. Once it is in place, our team will provide resources to assist you as you begin taking steps toward recovery.
It must be determined if medical supervision to stop alcohol or drug use safely is necessary. This process (if needed) will take place before admission to BTG and can last anywhere between several days to a week or more. Usually, people who are intaking large amounts of benzodiazepines or alcohol need detox since they have severe withdrawal symptoms.
However, not all people need a detox. People with mild withdrawal symptoms from alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, opioids, or methamphetamine can usually go right into treatment. Our admissions director can help guide you through this process. It is important to point out that detox is not treatment, it is the first step that can prepare a person for treatment.
We have complied a packing list for you including items to bring to treatment and those you should leave at home.
We uphold high ethical standards to ensure quality and confidentiality.
It is not therapeutically advised for clients to have their own room. With the disease of addiction being a disease that isolates, we like to room clients with roommate as much as possible.

In our Second Phase, you are allowed to have your cell phone and computer after the clinical day.

At capacity, each counselor has a max case load of about 6-8 clients. We strive to have 4 clients per counselor.
Every individual has unique needs. That is why we begin with outlining an individualized treatment plan to find what would best suit your recovery process. We do not perform a “day count” rather look at the best option for you.
BTG strives to offer the most therapeutic approach in each clinical environment. Therefore, clinical staff assesses the appropriateness and value of gender-specific groups and mixed gender groups throughout the clinical day.
