Your First Phone Call to Realization Center
When you call Realization Center, please ask for the intake department and you will be connected with a trained clinician. We will discuss the program with you in detail answering any and all your questions.

This phone call is confidential.

You can either schedule an intake appointment time during this call or this can be an information gathering talk. We do have to get some specific information from you in order to assess your appropriateness for the outpatient program. If you decide you would like to schedule an appointment, we can give you an appointment within 24-48 hours.



When you come to the Center for your intake: will complete initial paperwork, meet with an intake counselor, a financial department representative, and begin your intake process. This consists of completing forms for confidentiality purposes and completing a biopsychosocial assessment evaluation to determine if you meet the criteria for outpatient treatment and the appropdriate level of care needed to help you in your recovery.

You will collaborate with the counselor to develop a plan of treatment and a treatment schedule. The complete initial intake process takes approximately 1-2 hours. Intakes are provided 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday. (If this time doesn’t work for you – please call us and we will work to help you!) At that time, you will be given a treatment schedule, meet your case manager and begin the program!
