Potential clients should gather the following documents to prepare for the intake process:
  • Verification of date of birth and current address
  • Social Security card
  • If not a citizen, a green card or green card number
  • Private health insurance or Medicaid card

Our Benefits Division staff will work with incoming clients to access any additional documentation that may be missing.

All adolescents without a High School diploma attend school while at Daytop. Accordingly, in addition to other intake documents, students must have:

  • Most recent school transcript
  • Last school report card
  • Current class schedule
  • Most recent IEP (Individual Education Plan) − if applicable
  • Immunization records

All school documents can be obtained from the last school attended by the student. If a parent does not have a copy of the Immunization records, the school of residence usually has the most recent.


Daytop accepts fee for service, some private insurance, and Medicaid. If potential clients are deemed eligible for government funding, we will assist with the application process.


Clients are referred to Daytop by schools, doctors, corporations, unions, and court systems. Daytop does not discriminate based on a person’s referral source or prior treatment history. Clients are screened to determine if the program is appropriate for their treatment needs.

Our staff works with various organizations to coordinate treatment procedures and payment options and supply “return to work” authorizations by a SAMHSA accredited physician.

For program information and adult placements please call 212-904-1500 or 718-474-8857 Monday to Friday, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.
