To be considered for admission, patients must be in need of 24-hour care in a setting that is less restrictive than an acute hospital. Patients need to have attempted and failed outpatient therapy, or partial hospitalization or an intensive outpatient therapy program..
Children and adolescents most appropriate for Willow Springs Center exhibit significant psychiatric, emotional and behavioral problems that cannot adequately be treated in the existing home or school environments.
Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Age Discrimination Act of 1975, Willow Springs Center does not discriminate in admissions, provision of services, hiring and employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age or disability (including AIDS and related conditions).
Referrals for admission come from psychiatric hospitals, addictions professionals, DETOX programs, parents, physicians, psychologists, therapists, school counselors, sober coaches, interventionists, community agencies, probation officers or other concerned individuals.
The treatment team reviews all clinical information submitted by referral families and/or referral sources to determine if the child/adolescent is appropriate for Willow Springs Center's treatment programs. If admission is not recommended, the admissions office provides referrals and resources to assist families in locating other levels of care or an appropriate program.
At Willow Springs Center, inquiry calls are answered 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Parents, guardians and referring professionals seeking information or treatment can call our Assessment and Referral Department at 800-448-9454.
