What I need to know for Admission 

It is very important that you arrive on time for your Admission or you risk not being admitted!

Having the family here at the time of admission is very beneficial for families, as much information is covered during that process.  However, we understand the sometimes it is not always possible for the family to be here due to different circumstances.  In the event that parents/guardian cannot be here for the admission, we will email/fax our Admission Packet be filled out, signed and sent with your child at admission time. 

Upon arrival, there will be paperwork to fill out and sign, this is in addition to paperwork that will be sent to you when your admission day/time has been determined. 

The State of Minnesota mandates that all clients have a physical. Clients can have a physical prior to admission or one can be done with our local clinic after the client arrives. Costs associated with the physical not covered by your insurance company will be your responsibility! (ex. deductibles, co-pays etc).

If you do not have any form of medical insurance, you must obtain a physical prior to admission.  We ask that you have your provider fax the physical directly to WINGS prior to admission day.   

Please feel free to contact us is you have any questions. 

  • Collateral Information 

WINGS will need to obtain collateral information on each potential client.  This information is usually a Chemical Dependency Assessment, Mental Health Assessment (commonly called a Diagnostic Assessment) or a Rule 25 Assessment.  These are completed by licensed professional.

  • What is a Assessment/Rule 25?

An Assessment/Rule 25 is an interview with a Licensed Professional that is designed to assess an individual substance use history to determine what level of care would best meet the individual's needs.  Rule 25 assessments are only valid for 45 days, after which time an update is required.  

If you have not had any type of assessment completed, Wings will also do a Rule 25 assessment, however we do charge to have this done. It will be your responsibility to submit those charges to your insurance company. 

  • What do I do after the assessment is completed?

Once the assessment has been completed, have your Rule 25 assessor fax (320-593-0442) or email the assessment to info@wingsats.comOnce your assessment has been received by WINGS it typically takes 2-3 business day for our clinical staff to review the information. 

  • Is there any other information I should send to WINGS?

Please send Referral Application Form (click on the link to open the form and print a copy) along with a copy of the most recent CD assessment and a copy of a Diagnostic assessment if one has been done.

Please fax this information to WINGS at 320-593-0442 or E-mail to INFO@wingsats.com 


After reviewing your assessment and the clinical staff has made a determination if you are appropriate for the WINGS program, our staff will contact you to schedule a phone interview.  The interview is an additional screening tool that we use to determine if our services can meet your needs.  It is VERY important that your contact number is on the referral information and current.
