Intake/Assessment Process

Our Intake process includes screening and assessment to place clients in the level of care where they will be most successful.

A screening consists of collecting insurance or Medicaid if applicable, obtaining medical records and prescriptions, checking vitals, a urine blood screen, and a medical clearance if applicable.

Admission interviews for each of our Programs take place at:

5312 Jaguar Dr., Santa Fe, NM 87507 ph. (505) 471-4985

Inpatient and Detox Screenings

Monday through Friday
9 AM to 3 PM on a walk-in basis

Outpatient Assessments

Monday through Friday
9 AM to 3 PM on a walk-in basis

SFRC is the only SUD program in New Mexico that provides in-house medical clearance by our qualified physician or physician’s assistant. Medical clearance is required for the Detox and Residential Programs. Medical clearance is not required for outpatient services.

We prefer to perform face-to-face screenings, but phone screenings conducted by our Intake Coordinator are available for individuals who have barriers to coming into the facility.

Once approved for an appropriate level of care, SFRC staff will transport clients directly to the appropriate program’s facility.

*SFRC uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and the Bio-Psychosocial Model for assessments and programmatic development.

* ASAM criteria consider several different dimensions in the client’s life from substance use, mental health conditions, medical conditions, and access to a safe stable living environment. The Bio-Psychosocial Model is a broad view that attributes disease outcome to the intricate, variable interaction of biological factors, psychological factors, and social factors.
