Central Intake

About SSM Health Behavioral Health's Referral Center 

Central Intake is our admissions call center for accessing any of our inpatient services at ​our locations​. Our trained Central Intake Team is focused on helping people with emotional, behavioral and/or addictive disease access the appropriate level of care to meet their immediate need.

It is important to contact Central Intake immediately when a person in crisis has been identified. Our Central Intake clinicians are available 24/7 to guide you through the admission process. They will begin by asking questions to help assess the treatment needs of the individual. These questions include:

  • Caller information
  • Patient information – date of birth, guardianship, insurance
  • Reason for referral – risk to self or others
  • Behavioral/mental health treatment history
  • Current medical status

Our Central Intake Team works hard to make the  referral process as easy as possible to ensure a quick response to your need. We value all of our customers and understand your concern for your patient, client  or loved one.

​Call our Central Intake​ professionals 24/7 at 1-866-472-4364 for referral or admission information.
