Our Admissions Specialists are available
24 hours a day 7 days a week


Admission Process

Admissions specialists will meet the patient at either the facility or at alternate locations within the community such as an emergency room, nursing home, or assisted living facility.   A pre-admission assessment will be completed at that time to determine whether or not the individual will benefit from our services. If the individual is deemed appropriate for admission, the paperwork will be completed and the patient will be transported to Spring Mountain Sahara.

Upon arrival at Spring Mountain Sahara the interdisciplinary treatment team consisting of doctors, nurses, therapists, and other healthcare professionals, will guide the patient towards a path of healing in a secure and therapeutic environment.
