Planning Your Admission

The admissions process includes a thorough review of the medical, clinical, and psychosocial needs of each client and family to ensure the most appropriate level of care. The initial assessment process may be completed by phone or an onsite visit with Origami’s Admissions Coordinator. After an admission has been approved by Origami’s Medical Director, insurance has been authorized, and physician orders have been obtained, the Admissions Coordinator will work with you to arrange for transportation.
