Walden’s Inpatient Treatment program offers on-site needs assessments and admissions Monday – Friday (8-5) for treatment of drug and/or alcohol addiction. Our phone support for admissions invites you to contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Voicemails received outside of on-site assessments and admissions hours are returned by team members on an on-call basis. We accept TAP and ASI assessments from other facilities; these can be faxed to 814-946-1260 We also accept walk-ins and same-day appointments at our Lexington Park facility on Mondays.

If you or someone you know is seeking help for a drug or alcohol addiction, please contact our admissions office to speak to one of our highly experienced needs assessment professionals, who will gather information, assist you in scheduling an assessment, and verify insurance coverage.

Any information you share with us is completely confidential, and there is no obligation to enter treatment.

Typical questions asked during the needs assessment process include:

  • Do you recognize the need for treatment for your drug and/or alcohol use?
  • Do you recognize the negative consequences of your drug and/or alcohol use?
  • Have you attempted to decrease the dosage of your drug of choice?
  • Have you maintained abstinence for any period of time?
  • Have you participated in any kind of treatment program in the past?
