What to expect:

When calling our Admissions Team, you will go through a series of questions to ensure we connect you with the best team possible. Your first meeting with Horizon, for the time being, will be through either a phone call or video chat. During this time, our team will engage you and your child in an assessment to best determine how to meet your needs. From there, a treatment recommendation is made and a personalized treatment plan is developed.

We are here to help, all while offering a safe, warm and supportive environment for you and your child. Getting help is normal. No family, parent or child is perfect, and we are ready to support you in your journey.
