Inpatient Admission Process
Admission and Confidentiality
An individual is considered for admission to Saint John Vianney Center when personal, psychological or behavioral problems interfere with their involvement in active ministry or present an impediment to engagement in community life. If you have a question about suitability, please speak with the contact admission coordinator at SJVC.
When you make the admission inquiry, please be prepared to answer some questions, so that we can accurately assess and recommend the appropriate service or treatment level. Please review the referral forms on this website. If we cannot deal with the prevalent issue we will refer you to an appropriate alternative program or counselor.
SJVC does require some information from the client upon their admission. Previous medical and psychological information will not be released to SJVC without written client consent. Relevant information includes, but may not be limited to:
- Medical and psychological history
- Current medications
- Recent lab results
- Past psychological evaluations
- Names and addresses of locations where patient has received treatment in the past
- Family history
- Reasons why resident feels he/she was sent to SJVC
- History of the resident's involvement with the Church
Getting to Saint John Vianney Center
After the admission is set up and a date of admission is determined, Saint John Vianney Center will work with you to organize transportation to our facility. Arrangements can be made by us for the resident to arrive by a taxi or to have a staff member pick them up at the airport. Patients may provide their own transportation to Saint John Vianney Center through the use of their own vehicles or you may escort the resident to offer support and to get a chance to see our facility as well. Directions are available on this website. If a patient brings their own vehicle, use of this vehicle will be limited while in treatment. When transportation is needed during treatment, Saint John Vianney Center staff will offer assistance.
