We will accept a phone call to discuss your status 7-10 days after mailing your application. If you use e-mail, please allow 3-5 days to review your application before calling the office. After reviewing your application, we will contact you to set up a personal interview appointment.
The personal interview appointment is to discern if the applicant is truly ready to receive the help we offer and to determine how we can best meet his or her particular needs. We have found through years of experience that we cannot help someone until they are ready and willing to be helped on all levels: body, mind and spirit. We REQUIRE that the applicant be clean for at least three (3) days prior to the interview. Under NO circumstances will we accept people into the program who have failed to be detoxed. We do not allow any kind of psychotropic drugs while in the program. Persons who require consistent medical attention will not be accepted into the program as we are not equipped to meet special medical needs.
Each person is expected to bring toiletries such as towels, toothpaste, deoderant, ect. However, we can provide these things to individuals who are in need of them.
The most important factor to being admitted to AKDC is ATTITUDE…Is the applicant ready to radically change their lifestyle?
There is ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING and the use of ANY TOBACCO PRODUCTS IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED while in the program.
