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

After we have collected the required admissions forms and records, our clinical staff will review them to determine eligibility for an assessment. If approved, you or your loved one will have a virtual assessment with one of 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 does not require a negative Coronavirus test prior to or upon arrival. However, we ask that newly arriving residents do not come to campus if they, or anyone in their party, are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms, or if they have tested positive on the date the resident is scheduled to arrive. 
 

Upon arrival we will ask a new resident if they have had a known exposure in the last three days, or if they are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms. If the answer is yes to one or both of these questions, we will offer a rapid COVID test. 

If the test is negative, we can proceed as we normally do when welcoming a new resident into our community. However, if the test is positive the new resident will have the option of either quarantining on campus in their room, or deferring their admission to quarantine elsewhere until they can test negative. 

For those fully vaccinated: we may ask for the vaccination card for documentation purposes only. 

For those not fully vaccinated: it is not a requirement to be vaccinated to be considered for admission into our programs.
