All prospective GreeneStone clients must complete a comprehensive intake phone assessment. This assessment gathers personal information as well as medical and substance use history to ensure our treatment program can provide the best care for you or your loved one.
Through motivational interviewing, we help individuals who may struggle with this process. If requested, a family member, physician or friend may join this call, as we understand additional support is often appreciated when someone is hesitant about treatment.
