Our Process

At Pathways, we do everything we can to help you or your loved one get needed treatment, as quickly as possible. Here is a step-by-step guide to the admissions process.

Step 1: Schedule an Intake Assessment

Call 410-573-5400 or 800-322-5858 and press 1 to schedule an intake assessment. Please have ready your insurance information, substance use history, list of current medications, medical/mental health history.

Step 2: Prepare at Home

Our goal is to admit patients into Pathways on the same day of their intake assessment. We recommend bringing one carry-on-sized bag of clothing and necessities with you to your assessment, as well as a completed pre-registration form. Learn more about what to bring.

Step 3: Come In for Your Intake Assessment

Typically two hours in length, your scheduled assessment will include a medical assessment with a nurse, a psycho-social assessment with an intake counselor and/or a mental health counselor. The intake counselor will meet with your family as part of the assessment.
