Your First Call
The first step to admission at Better Tomorrow Treatment Palm Beach rehab is simple, just give us a call. The first call gives us a chance to get to know you and answer any questions you have. We can also verify insurance benefits for you at this time.
To set the foundation for an admission at our West Palm Beach rehab, we’ll do a brief phone assessment with the prospective patient. The idea is for us to paint a clear picture of what you need help with and get a sense of your background, medical history and any previous treatment.
Please feel free to open up to us on the call. We have all had our lives touched by addiction, so there is nothing you can say that will shock us or lead to judgement. We are here to help and the best way we can do that is if we have a good understanding of what you’re having trouble with.
During the first call, we can also gather insurance information and perform a verification of benefits for you. This service is free of charge and does not obligate you to anything. Once that is completed, we’ll be able to explain to you in plain language what your health insurance covers and how you can use it to get the help you need at our rehab in Palm Beach Florida.
Once the phone assessment has been completed and your insurance is verified, just relax, you’re on your way. Our clinical director will review your chart to make sure you’re a good fit for our Palm Beach rehab. Once all the boxes are checked, we will give you a call to put plans in motion to get you the help you need.

We have three major airports within 1 hour or less of our Palm Beach rehab and we arrange discrete ground transportation direct to our facility from any of them. If you cannot fly for any reason, there are also AMTRAK and Greyhound Bus stations in West Palm Beach we can utilize.

• A non-invasive search of you and your belongings (the person admitting for treatment)
• Getting a copy of our clinical philosophy, client handbook, and other program information
• A tour of our clinical offices or residential facility (depending on what time you arrive)
• An introduction to our community and the rules guiding you through treatment
• After the intake process, we’ll get you comfortable and settled in your room
One of the first things we’ll do to begin your care is an initial psychiatric assessment with one of our clinicians. The next part of this process is the biopsychosocial assessment. That will be assembled during the first few days of treatment clinical team an idea of the areas to focus on during the course of your treatment.
This psychiatric assessment, paired with the biopsychosocial data will give us a framework to create your confidential medical record. All of this goes towards building an individualized treatment plan so all the people providing your care here will have the most complete picture possible of your needs and concerns.
