Admissions Process

Phone call

Speak with one of our friendly admissions team members. We will help you determine which program would be best for you or your loved one, and gather information about the potential resident.

Forms and medical records

We will provide you with several forms that need to be completed. We also collect past mental health records for the potential resident.

Virtual assessment

You or your loved one will have a virtual assessment with our clinicians. From there, a decision on admission can be made and the journey at CooperRiis can begin.

COVID-19 and Admissions

Admission to CooperRiis is dependent on a negative Coronavirus test upon arrival. If someone tests positive on the day of admission, they will not be admitted.

For those fully vaccinated: we require proof of vaccination prior to arrival.

For those not fully vaccinated: we require a negative Coronavirus test within 5 days of arrival and a weekly rapid test will be given after arrival. 

If you are interested in getting vaccinated, we can help you get the vaccine during the Admissions process.
