Taking That First Step

It’s said that a journey of 1,000 miles starts with a single step. If you’re ready to take that first step toward recovery, Integrative Life Center is here to guide you through. With information. With support. And with people who understand your challenges and really want to help

The ILC admissions process is more about communication and less about paperwork. It starts with a phone call where you tell us what you’re looking for, and we tell you about ILC. Together, we decide if it sounds like a match. If so, we continue our conversation to learn more about you, and how we can create a personalized path to return you to health and wholeness. If we’re not right for you, we’ll suggest possible alternatives.

When you call ILC, you’ll speak with one of our Admissions Specialists who welcome outreach from potential clients, family members and referral sources including physicians, attorneys, therapists, ILC alumni, clergy, colleagues, and employers.

Time to Pick up the Phone?

Making that first call can be hard. We’ll greet you without judgment and without pressure. Just honest information to help you move beyond addiction, trauma, or pain that’s taking over your life.

Call us if…

  • you want to learn more about ILC programs, therapists, residences, reputation, or outpatient options.
  • you’re concerned about a loved one.
  • you’re thinking of referring someone.
  • you want to know what integrated, experiential recovery is all about.
  • you’ve been in treatment before and are still suffering.
  • you want to hear a caring voice on the other end of the line.


Getting from that first call to a place of help and hope isn’t complicated. Here’s what you can expect:

  • We’ll schedule a session, by phone or in person, to get details about your physical and mental health history, past treatment, addiction or substance use issues, and other relevant matters.
  • Based on the information you provide, our Clinical Team can determine if ILC is a good fit for you.
  • If needed, we will seek a Verification of Benefits (VOB) from your insurance provider to determine if insurance will contribute to the cost of your program.
  • We will craft a personalized recovery plan based on everything we’ve learned about you, your goals, and what you hope to achieve.
  • You agree to a detailed treatment plan that addresses everything including how and where you will be treated, finances, expected length of stay, and family involvement.
  • Treatment begins, and we welcome you into the ILC family.

“People tell us they love the feeling of respect they get, from their first call to Integrative Life Center to the moment they walk through our doors on their journey to recovery.”– VP of Admissions, Greg Kfoury
