First Things First

  • Parents and referring professionals may call the admissions team at 877-496-2463 or submit this Contact Form.
  • Our admissions office is open Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 5:00pm. If you need to contact us after hours, please leave a detailed message and someone will respond to you as soon as possible.  
  • During the call, an Admissions Specialist will provide a brief overview of the program, will review the tuition, and answer general program questions that you may have. They will ask preliminary questions which include presenting problems, general background, and overarching concerns.
  • After the introductory call, if parents or referring professionals would like to learn more and determine if the teen is a good fit for Ironwood, a second call will be scheduled with the Clinical Director.

Assessment and Pre-Admission

Our skilled team of admissions experts will work closely with prospective clients and their families after an initial conversation has taken place. An in-depth assessment interview will take place in which detailed, relevant information is gathered on behalf of the prospective client. In addition to this interview, our dedicated staff will also procure necessary details from referring professionals and treatment providers. If the prospective client is deemed appropriate for our program, admissions logistics including transportation arrangements are made. 


When involved with an admission, the referring professional is contacted within 24 hours of their client’s admission to our program. Clients will also be asked to sign a Release of Information, so as to empower Ironwood to share vital information with the referring professional. We work tirelessly to serve your needs as well as your client’s needs.

Insurance Options

We encourage families to use resources such as Denials Management, Inc. or SJ Health Insurance Advocates to fully investigate your potential insurance options.
