Dianna Sandoval, LPC, LAC, CAC III
Executive Clinical Director
Thank you for taking the time to consider Sandstone Care. We truly value your interest in our treatment services and hope that you find our website to be a helpful resource as you evaluate referral options for your client.
At Sandstone Care, effective collaboration is one of our 5 fundamental core values (Service, Outcomes Focused, Accessibility, Passion and Collaboration). We understand the importance of coordinating care and effective collaboration all in an effort to improve long-term treatment outcomes for the individuals and families which we collectively work with.
We are honored to be considered by you and your client and are committed to providing the highest quality treatment experience possible. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
We provide a range of treatment options from full-time to just a few hours a week. Our programs include Extended Care, Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient, and General Outpatient Treatment to help clients get back on track in a very comprehensive way.
At Sandstone Care, we provide evidence-based, age-appropriate, integrated treatment that is customized to the unique needs of each client we serve. Our treatment programs use today’s most effective treatment methods to address not only substance use and addiction, but also underlying mental health concerns or co-occurring disorders.
Before admission, a licensed clinician conducts a comprehensive clinical assessment to determine an appropriate level of care and to begin identifying core aspects of a client’s respective treatment plan. Each client also completes a full psychiatric evaluation with one of our staff psychiatrists and participates in ongoing assessment to ensure clinical focus and progress are well understood.
All of our primary therapists are licensed clinical professionals with significant experience working with both substance abuse and mental health. We also have 2 on-site staff psychiatrists who conduct initial evaluations and provide ongoing medication management and assessment support throughout treatment.
We understand drug and alcohol use and mental health concerns affect many parts of a person’s life. We include a family program, academic and vocational support, and community-based activities to support and promote long-lasting recovery.
Our clinical team works diligently with referring professionals throughout our program to ensure our treatment and continuing care plans are well coordinated and supportive of the client and their family.
Sandstone Care is licensed by the State of Colorado Office of Behavioral health and has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission, the nation’s leading healthcare accrediting organization.
Your client’s decision to join Sandstone Care is very important and will influence the rest of his or her life. We are committed to supporting you, the client, and the client’s family throughout the admission process and beyond.
A treatment professional, potential client, or family member may call our Admissions Supervisor, Olivia Pilcher. Olivia is a master’s level clinician and will conduct an initial assessment with the caller to discuss the presenting issues. During this discussion, Olivia also asks the caller if he or she is working with an outside treatment provider or referred by a treatment provider.
After obtaining a release of information, this referring provider will be contacted for clinical information and begin clinical collaboration. Olivia can also verify insurance benefits and discuss any out-of-pocket program cost expectations.
After the initial call with our Admissions Supervisor, we’ll schedule your client for a full clinical assessment with one of our licensed clinicians. This typically occurs on-site at Sandstone Care and takes 60–90 minutes. The assessment clinician will conduct a full bio, psycho, social assessment and collect the following information:
Please note: any out-of-state clients will complete a pre-assessment over the phone, which usually takes 30–60 minutes to confirm appropriateness for our treatment programs.
Following a client’s admission into Sandstone Care, we will contact the referring treatment professional within 72 hours. We’ll ask the client to sign a release of information for his or her outside treatment professionals upon intake. If the client signs the release, our primary therapist will reach out to further discuss the client’s case and provide updates as requested by the referring professional.
Please note that if you do not receive communication from Sandstone Care, it is likely due to the client not signing a release of information. We respect and honor a client’s right to confidentiality; however, we view this as a clinical issue that we will work to address during treatment.
Our goal is to collaborate with you and your client to provide the best care and experience with Sandstone Care.
We welcome your feedback and questions. We look forward to working with you.
We work with most insurance companies. We’re able to verify benefits and estimate program costs prior to admission.
