Intake and Admissions

Step 1: Meet with a counselor
Before receiving treatment at Fairbanks, all prospective patients meet with a certified counselor for an assessment of health and substance use history.

Step 2: Receive treatment plan
Based on that assessment, you or your loved one will receive our recommended, personalized course for the most effective treatment plan, which can include inpatient, outpatient or any combination of our programs.

Step 3: Start the journey to recovery
Once admitted into a program, we will do everything we can to ensure customized treatment is well received and effective. Through our continuum of care, our staff and volunteers meet you or your loved ones where they are on the journey to recovery. From inpatient detox to outpatient programming and beyond, we are with you every step of the way.

Step 4: Get ongoing support
Supporting your loved ones while in treatment is an important part of our program. Fairbanks incorporates visitation with our family programs, which provides loved ones with information about addiction and recovery. Programming involves group therapy, education and support meetings facilitated by our expert staff.

Step 5: Follow up
The first year of recovery is a critical time. We provide group and individualized follow-up for those who have completed treatment.

Plan to bring:

  • Photo ID
  • Insurance Card
  • Contact information for your primary care physician, probation officer, lawyer, therapist, family members or loved ones you want involved with your care.

If you are admitted into an inpatient or residential program, please bring:

  • Comfortable, everyday clothing (including tennis shoes)
  • Money for vending machines or gift shop
  • Medications in their original bottles with the prescription information on them
  • Nicotine replacement products such as gum, patches or lozenges
  • Personal care items that do not contain alcohol
  • Reading glasses if needed
  • Sleepwear/robe
  • Insurance cards, photo ID (driver’s license or passport) and prescription cards if you have them
  • Contact information for your primary care physician, attorney, probation officer, EAP or family members

The length of your stay will be determined by the initial clinician and medical assessment, recommended level or care and treatment goals. Inpatient care can vary from a few days to a few weeks. Outpatient care can occur over the course of several weeks of specialized programming during the day or evening.

Supporting your loved one while in treatment is an important part of our program. Fairbanks incorporates visitation with our family programs, which provides loved ones with information about addiction and recovery. Programming involves group therapy, education and support meetings facilitated by our expert staff.
