Intake Process

The admissions process starts with an initial phone intake with our masters level Intake Specialists (206.538.2305). We will gather insurance information and check eligibility and benefits to ensure it makes sense to proceed with the admissions process.

Prior to admission to Opal, these three steps are taken:

  • 30-minute phone intake with Tina Alvarado, LMFTA or Gigi Zappone, LMHCA
  • Face-to-face intake
  • Medical assessment as appropriate

Based on the information gathered, we will make a recommendation regarding the most appropriate level of care for your treatment.  If we can offer the recommended services at Opal, we will then begin the process of setting up your care plan.

Opal’s Intake Department phone number is 206.538.2305.
