Once an applicant has contacted Stonehenge and expressed interest in the program, a treatment assessment is required. The assessment process consists of two separate intake interviews.
In the first interview, personal information is gathered and the severity of substance abuse is assessed through questionnaires and contact with previous treatment sources. In a group setting, applicants and their families are then provided with an overview of the treatment program, with a senior resident available to answer questions. For applicants who are unable to attend due to long distance or incarceration, this interview will occur through a telephone assessment or institutional visit. If the Stonehenge program is assessed to be a good treatment match and the applicant has demonstrated sufficient motivation, he or she is deemed eligible.
Once an applicant has been considered eligible and is accepted to the program, a second interview is necessary on the day of admission into the program. This interview is necessary to confirm that all requirements have been met and that the applicant is appropriately prepared for treatment and adequately withdrawn from substances.
