The Admission Process

In order for a child to be considered for admission, the team at Hillside needs to see clinical documentation from a mental health professional, that clearly outlines: diagnosis, current medications, historical information describing how the child’s symptoms began and have progressed, current behaviors within the last 2-4 weeks that necessitate placement in residential treatment, and a description of interventions that have been tried to address the issues.  After the clinical documentation is received, it will be staffed by our treatment team to determine if the child is a good fit for Hillside’s programming.  If the child is approved for admission, the admissions team will then work with the child’s referring provider and insurance company to secure authorization for the level of care recommended, and to schedule an admission date.  It is during this time that the additional documents required for admission will be gathered. Please submit all documentation to admissions@hside.org.
