What Are the Admission Requirements?

Our residents must be 18 or older. Our pre-admission process includes a health screening, review of current medications and a full substance abuse history including current usage patterns. Registration for admission typically begins over the phone.


How Often Do You Admit?

We admit daily Monday – Friday. Residents must have someone drive them to Alina Lodge. Transportation to Alina Lodge from a Medical Facility can be arranged in advance through Alina Lodge.

What Should I Expect Upon Admission?

Upon admission, our medical staff meets with the incoming student to identify any medical issues of an emergency nature that need attention. Prospective guests who are actively using substances will go through full medically supervised detoxification in our Detox Center before they begin our residential treatment program in earnest. When a guest has completed detox they are ready to begin their recovery and rehabilitation. Our staff will help with interventionists, detox, primary treatment, and aftercare. Alina Lodge will provide the full continuum of care for guests and their loved ones.
