Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. In fact, we consider family involvement to be an essential part of your treatment plan. After the patient provides consent, a clinician will contact the individual’s family with treatment information, give regular updates and help schedule family therapy sessions when appropriate.

Each patient is provided a code for family to use when they call. Phone privileges and visits with family and friends have dedicated time slots that are detailed in the patient handbook. All visitors must sign in and check any packages at the unit’s nursing station reception desk before being permitted to enter the facility.

You may call the reception office at 855-234-5920 for specific times and hours of operation.

Assessments at Old Vineyard Behavioral Health Services are no cost to you and are conducted to help us determine our patients’ mental health and treatment plan.

We strongly encourage those in need to call ahead and schedule an appointment, but we are also available for emergency mental health services.

We accept most major insurance including Medicare and TRICARE. Our assessment and referral center will ensure that insurance benefits are verified including precertification for your stay. Throughout the process, we will remain in contact with your insurance company to ensure coverage will be maintained for the duration of your stay.

The number of days is contingent on a person’s specific mental health treatment needs. Old Vineyard will provide care for the appropriate length of time through our individualized treatment plan. This ensures that patients will leave the program equipped with the tools they need to lead a successful and healthy life within the community.
