APPLICATION PROCESS FAQS
Q. WHAT IS THE INITIAL PROCESS TO RECEIVE INPATIENT HELP?
A. Upon completing our contact form, one of our team members will reach out to you via phone within 24 hours during the week or 72 hours during the weekend. During the telephone conversation, we’ll learn more about you, your needs, and answer any questions you may have about ATIF. Upon completion of your application and approval thereof by our intake committee, within 3-4 business days we will establish an appointment to complete your assessment and determine what needs you have. Shortly thereafter, we will begin your plan of action for treatment.
Q. IS THERE A WAITING LIST FOR THE CENTER? IF SO, WHAT HAPPENS TO ME WHILE I WAIT?
A. ATIC has 18 beds in our facility in Jacksonville. If the facility has reached capacity, we will check availability at our sister center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Our top priority is to get you immediate help. If both facilities are full, our team will explore alternative options in getting you the treatment that you deserve.
Q. DO I HAVE TO BE DIAGNOSED WITH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) TO APPLY FOR THIS PROGRAM?
A. No. This specialized program addresses education and care for individuals with health/behavioral issues from post-concussion syndrome, post-traumatic stress, mTBI or other similar diagnosis.
