Inpatient Mental Health Intake & Admissions Process

Desert Parkway's Assessment and Referral Department works to ensure that the admission process is as easy as possible for our patients. Equally important is helping potential patients and families to feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the hospitalization process. We encourage you to call and speak to one of our Intake professionals about the programs and services that are offered by Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital. To begin the process, all you need to do is pick up the phone and call our Assessment and Referral Department, someone is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take your call at 877-663-7976.

Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age.


At Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, our goal during the assessment process is for you to feel comfortable and informed. An assessment allows us to efficiently and effectively evaluate how you are feeling emotionally and physically so that we may identify a program and services which best meet your needs. Feel free to bring a family member or friend, as this may be helpful for support and to assist in the assessment process. 

Packing for your stay

It is our goal to provide the highest quality of healthcare to our clients. In order to do so, we have established some guidelines for your stay. Many of these guidelines are in response to mental health laws and regulations, and all of our guidelines seek to protect the safety of our patients. Please bring no more than 3 days' worth of clothing for your inpatient stay.

Provider Referral

We value our partnerships and relationships within the community, and as an independent psychiatric hospital, we rely upon referrals from you and your colleagues for continued growth and success. Our Assessment and Referral Department is open 24/7 to better serve you and your patients’ needs./p>

Family Referral

We know the position you are in and what you are going through. If you are unsure about how to approach your family member or friend, we are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week to answer all your questions and guide you step by step.

Self Referral

One of the hardest things to do is to admit you have a problem. You have already taken the first, and most important, step to recovery by recognizing you need help with your mental health issue or addiction. Please know you are not alone and we can help.
