Referral & Admissions Process

Cove PREP reviews each request for admission in order to determine if our program can appropriately meet the needs of the youth being referred for placement. The following information is required to make that determination:

  • Information regarding the sexual offenses
  • Placement history and records
  • Legal information - including any arrest reports and current legal status
  • Copies of any Psychological &/or psychiatric evaluations
  • Education history & relevant records
  • Medical history - including immunization records

    The Treatment Team will review the referral packet and determine if the youth is appropriate for admission. If so, an admission date will be scheduled. This process is typically completed in one week or less.

    The Treatment Team may recommend an alternative level of care, or may request that a face-to-face interview be scheduled to obtain further information.

    Referrals may be forwarded via mail or Fax to:
