We understand how difficult it is to reach out. It can be even more difficult when hurting, hopeless or hiding. As intimidating as the first step may be, change occurs when we take action. And it takes incredible courage to do so.

At Sanford House, we respect that kind of boldness and we want to make this as painless as possible. Our turnkey approach to treatment, values an admissions process that is collaborative, comfortable and helpful. Our admissions professionals will answer your questions about Sanford House programming, and keep personal information secure and confidential.

After we receive your call or email, we will assist in determining your insurance eligibility. Next, we will obtain a brief medical history and schedule a full assessment with one of our counselors. If you are in need of medically assisted detox services, we are able to provide information to help you arrive at Sanford House safely detoxed. Upon arrival, staff will orient you to the program, provide a tour, and arrange a meeting with your personal counselor. Medical concerns are addressed by our Medical Director.
