REFERRAL PROCESS

Referral forms and Rule 25/Comprehensive Assessments completed or updated within the last 45 days can be faxed to Wayside’s Intake Department at 651-209-6341.

Once we receive a Rule 25/Comprehensive Assessment, review typically takes two business days. An Intake Coordinator will determine whether placement on our waitlist is appropriate and contact both the individual seeking services and the referring partner to initiate next steps.

An Intake Coordinator will also contact women seeking services to conduct a telephone intake interview (approximately 30-45 minutes) with questions related to substance use, physical health, mental health and motivation for seeking services.

If there are no significant concerns, prospective clients may be scheduled for admission based on program availability. Wayside does offer pre-engagement services to support women as they wait for admission.

If you are a referring partner and have questions regarding this process, please contact Wayside’s Intake Department at 651-242-5440.
