WHAT TO EXPECT

Could you or someone you know benefit from a more intensive mental health or chemical dependency treatment program? Sundance offers different levels of care, from inpatient, where the individual in crisis is monitored in a safe environment and medication management and therapy are a prime focus, to outpatient, where the individual attends group therapy during the day and is able to go home at night.

The first step is to make an appointment. We offer free assessments 24/7 for your convenience. You or your family member will meet with a mental health professional and they will make a determination as to what level of care would be most beneficial. From there, if an admission to either inpatient or outpatient is recommended, insurance will be filed or a self-pay payment plan can be created.

Upon discharge, a comprehensive plan will be created. All medication adjustments or additions are listed, therapy notes are included and appointments are made with a psychiatrist, a therapist and their primary care physician.
