2. Complete a Pre-Admissions Intake Evaluation by Phone

When you are ready to admit yourself or someone else to our program at Liberty Bay Recovery Center, an intake specialist will conduct a brief evaluation by phone to gather information on:

  • Types of substances you abuse
  • Length and frequency of use
  • Any past addiction treatment
  • Areas of significant distress
  • Employment and living situation
  • Other medical information

Once you complete our pre-admission intake, you will then speak with one of our clinicians to ensure that our treatment program is a good fit for you. We want to make sure that our treatment will be of maximum benefit to you and your journey in recovery.

3. Provide Financial Information

To make the intake process as smooth as possible, our intake specialist will ask for your insurance information and permission to contact your insurance company directly. This insurance verification will tell us what services are covered by your policy. Of course, if you wish to self-pay, just let the intake specialist know. Our staff can also help you learn more about payment options.

4. Make Travel Arrangements

After we confirm your admission, you should then make arrangements to travel to our rehab facility in Portland, Maine. If you prefer, our intake specialists can assist with your travel arrangements.

If you plan to arrive by air, Portland International Jetport (PWM) is the closest airport. Let us know your flight number and arrival time, and we will arrange a ride for you from the airport. Several bus and train lines also serve Portland, including Greyhound and the Amtrak Downeaster. We can also provide transportation to and from the bus or train station.

We do not, however, recommend that patients drive themselves to treatment. Our staff is happy to work with you to provide transportation to Liberty Bay Recovery Center. If you must drive a vehicle here, we can make arrangements to store the vehicle off property. Please note that while our treatment center is in a safe area, there is no extra security for the parking area.
