The staff at Wellspring is committed to finding the most appropriate care for each child. The process begins when a concerned parent, family member or agency in the community contacts Wellspring. Our Admissions Specialist answers any questions and gathers relevant information from parents or guardians, counselors, therapists, physicians, or other professionals who have worked with the child. After reviewing the available information, an Admissions Team will make a determination of appropriateness for the program.
The Admissions Specialist also helps families determine whether they qualify for State funding and/or whether a family's private health insurance covers the cost.
