St. Ann’s Admissions Department takes great pride in working with a wide variety of referral sources, including state agencies, school districts, hospitals, clinicians, social workers, and third-party payers. St. Ann’s receives and welcomes inquiries from parents/guardians, advocates and attorneys, community agencies and courts. Although the majority of referrals are from Massachusetts and New Hampshire, St. Ann’s accepts referrals from throughout the United States.
The children, adolescents, and young adults referred to St. Ann’s present with a wide range of issues and challenges, including learning disabilities, mood disorders, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), reactive attachment disorder (RAD), anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). St. Ann’s also works with youth who display other developmental, emotional, and behavioral challenges. Nearly all of these referrals have experienced multiple forms of trauma.
During the admissions process, our admissions team takes great care to learn about each individual, including their history, family system, strengths, and needs. Every effort is made to make a timely admission decision in order to ensure that each youth receives the best individualized care and treatment to meet their specific needs.
