Step 2. You will receive a phone call from a member of The Glen’s intake team on the number you have provided within 2 business days.

Step 3. The Glen’s intake team may ask you for some documents to support your application such as your criminal history or medical certificates.

Step 4.  Once your supporting documents have been received and approved, you will be contacted by The Glen’s intake team to arrange a time and date for your telephone assessment.

Step 5.  At the arranged time of your telephone assessment, phone the intake team at The Glen on the number provided to you. If you are suitable for The Glen, you will be placed on a waiting list until a bed is available. You will be able to join our pre-rehab program at this stage, to support you while you are waiting for a place. It may be a good idea to apply to other programs to increase your chance of getting the help you need.

Step 6.  Final acceptance into the program will only be given to suitable clients after all supporting documentation has been approved and detox confirmation details are received.

Step 7. When you are offered a place at The Glen, you will need to be clean of all substances for 5 days before you enter our program. You will need to arrange your own place in a detox program. Some suggested detox services are:
