What to Expect During the Admissions Process
A Smooth Transition into Treatment
Crafted By Clinicians, Made For You.

We also use feedback from our alumni to inform changes to our programs or operations.
Starting the Admissions Process
What Information We Need
If you are helping a friend or family member enroll in one of our programs, we will need to collect information for the individual who is seeking treatment.
You can complete our insurance verification form in order to expedite the admissions process. If you are looking for more information on how to pay for rehab, we have provided an in-depth breakdown of insurance and other methods of payment for substance abuse treatment. All information you share with us is kept strictly confidential as outlined in HIPAA. HIPAA laws apply to your health information before, during, and after your stay in treatment with us.
Once We Have Your Information,
We Will Handle Everything Else.
At South Coast Behavioral Health, it is our job to set you up for success at every stage of the recovery process. This includes planning your stay in treatment. Whether you are a California native or will be traveling to attend treatment from out-of-state, we will handle everything from booking your flight to picking you up at the airport.
Many of our clients here at South Coast come from another state. We will expertly handle your trip from your state to California and make you feel at home once you arrive. We will take care of everything for your travel, including your flight to and from our facilities.
You will have the support of South Coast staff from the moment you enroll into our programs and after you complete them. We continue providing a strong recovery community through our alumni services. To read more about what we offer to our alumni, click here.
The out-of-pocket cost for our programs varies depending on which programs you attend and if you will be using health insurance or not. Health insurance is not required for our programs, we do have private payment options. We are an in-network provider with Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, as well as work with a wide variety of other private insurance providers. You can check your coverage here.
Our amazing team of clinicians have a master’s-level education at a minimum, with a number of our clinicians certified in specialty psychotherapies. Additionally, our program specializes in trauma, so all of our clinicians are well-versed in trauma-sensitive therapies.
Typically, we can enroll you on the same day you call in. We will be able to schedule your admission for a couple of days or weeks out if you would like also.
The key to finding out how soon you can get enrolled is to call in. As you can imagine, we don’t always have openings and openings for our programs don’t become available on a determined schedule. Because of this, the length of our admissions process may vary. If you give us a call, our admissions coordinators will be able to tell you how many openings we have available and for which programs.
As a private treatment provider, we have admission coordinators who are part of our staff and have worked with us for many years. South Coast has a small number of admission coordinators, so if you call in more than once, chances are— you will be talking to the same individual you spoke with the first time.
Our admission coordinator will be your contact throughout the admissions process. They do everything from explaining our programs and answering your questions, to booking your flight and coordinating your transportation to our confidential facilities.
