Our Admissions Process & Criteria

Patients seeking admission to any of our programs can simply contact our intake/admissions team 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Our staff will be able to answer any questions that you may have and assist you in deciding on the best treatment option based upon your personal needs, and work with you on a free, confidential assessment. We accept most types of insurance, and if you ultimately decide Park Royal is not a fit for you, we will work with you and our contacts in the community to refer you to another program that may be more suited to your needs.

Treatment Assessment

Assessing Your Treatment Needs

When you arrive at Park Royal Hospital, you will be assessed to determine your specific needs. Our compassionate, experienced staff will then create a plan of care that addresses your unique strengths and goals. We will tailor your plan for whatever mental health and/or addiction concerns you are experiencing.

Many patients who struggle with chemical dependence will begin treatment in our detox program (described below), and then transition into other levels of care. By providing a full spectrum of psychiatric and addiction services, we are able to seamlessly transition our patients throughout the continuum of care without an interruption in support.

Following our mission of offering specialized treatment for each of our patients’ needs, we have a number of special programs and levels of care.

Everyone was nice and helpful! The techs I worked with made things make sense in the most upbeat cheerful way.
