Initial Conversation

To help ease any concerns about your initial phone call to us, it helps to understand what to expect when you are connected with us. Our counselor will guide you through a brief and confidential assessment.

Here are some things that the counselor may discuss with you: How you or your loved one will travel from treatment, your insurance policy and what benefits may help cover the costs of Westport House, length of stay and accommodations, and medical history.

Insurance

For the outpatient treatment services offered at Westport House, we accept most major insurance plans. We will work with your insurance company to verify what benefits will cover your treatment expenses. We will give you an assessment of your options and what is covered or what costs may need to be paid out-of-pocket.

The verification process does not cost you anything and will simply give you an approximate idea of how you can plan for treatment financially.

When you arrive at Westport House, our admissions coordinator will sit down with you and introduce you to your new environment. He may take you on a tour, introduce you to staff, discuss your personal concerns and goals, and answer any questions. After the intake meeting, the admissions coordinator will transport you to your new residence and help you adjust to your new surroundings.
