1-2-3 steps to start your recovery
Call and speak with one of our screeners. Our first call helps determine your eligibility for mental health, psychiatric or substance use services at Valley Cities. Our team is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at (253) 833-7444.
Review eligibility requirements. On the phone, you’ll go over eligibility requirements, learn what you’ll need to bring with you for your intake visit, and answer any questions you may have. If you require an interpreter, or have special needs, please let us know.
Come in to any of our neighborhood clinics for an intake assessment. Walk-in intakes are available Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., though availability may vary.
Note on intake availability: all Valley Cities offices are closed in the mornings on the third Wednesday of each month for staff training. Please take that into consideration when planning a time to come in for your intake.
