Apply / Refer
Requests for residential admission are submitted to the Intake Coordinator via a 4-step process. The Intake Coordinator will: (1) receive the online application, consent forms and collateral documentation from the applicant or referral source; (2) schedule and complete a screening telephone interview with the youth applicant and; (3) make and communicate the admission decision with support from the Admissions Committee as required and (4) schedule the admission date when space becomes available.
The DSYTC Admissions Committee is composed of the Intake Coordinator, Executive Director and the Clinical Director. This committee is responsible for ensuring that all admission decisions are thorough, fair and consistent with the needs and best interests of the applicant. In making such decisions, the committee will also consider the overall clinical profile of existing residential clientele with the objective of remaining within available treatment capacity.
