APN’s Admissions Criteria help determine a client’s eligibility and suitability for treatment. Length of stay will vary depending upon individual clients’ needs and responses to treatment.
APN will not discriminate on the basis of race, age, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, or sexual orientation. Our admission, readmission, and intake criteria are not influenced by personal identifying factors, nor are our decisions regarding attendance, clinical diagnostic evaluations, or long-term recovery planning.
