Our Admissions & Referral Process

Rivendell of Arkansas has staff dedicated to walking patients and referring individuals through the entire admissions process, including scheduling a no-cost, in-person assessment at our facility or select locations in the community (schools, community centers, courts, etc.). Our Mobile Assessment and Emergency Response Teams are trained and ready to respond to your specific needs and present the resources/options available.

Our 30 to 60-minute assessments are done under the direction of clinical and medical leaders with a physician available by telephone to discuss any specific issues as necessary. Once admitted, a physician will conduct a psychiatric evaluation of the patient taking into consideration social influences and stressors, education and physical health. The admitting physician will initiate a diagnosis in an emergent situation to stabilize any acute symptoms and continue assessing the patient for further psychiatric conditions throughout treatment.


Referrals can be made by an individual patient, or family or loved one being affected by an individual patient’s crisis. Members of the professional community (physicians, courts, counseling/community agencies, psychologists, etc.) can also refer individuals to our facility for treatment and assessment.


Rivendell accepts Medicare and other private health insurances. While we do not offer military-specific programming at our facility, we do accept TRICARE®. For more information on health insurance, contact us at 501-316-1255.
