What must be accomplished prior to Acadia accepting the patient?

Crisis services can be used for the evaluation, if desired. The patient must be medically cleared (per the Medical Clearance Criteria) and stable during transfer. The referring provider will be asked to perform a breathalyzer test, urine drug screen and pregnancy test for women of childbearing age and forward the results to the POU when available. The Acadia provider can consult on issues pertaining to stabilization of a patient.
