At Southcoast Behavioral Health, we value the strong relationships we build with other professionals and are happy to be a part of each of our patients’ treatment teams. If you are a referring professional and have a client or patient whom you feel we would be able to help, we encourage you to contact us and speak with someone in our admissions department. Recognizing the courage that is required for each of our patients to seek treatment, we have sought to make the referral process as smooth and streamlined as possible.
Our admissions staff is available to answer any questions you may have and to help make arrangements to admit a prospective patient who is currently in your care. In addition, our admissions staff can advise you whether or not a particular patient is a good fit for our program. If he or she is a not a good fit, our admissions counselor can also provide references for other treatment centers that may provide more appropriate treatment.
When you refer one of your patients to us, we make it our goal to update you regularly so as to facilitate a smooth transfer back to your care once your patient has completed treatment. We believe this continuity of care provides a distinct advantage to our patients as it minimizes any interruption that the transition into and out of inpatient care may bring.
We accept referrals from a wide array of sources, some of which include:
- Hospital emergency departments
- Community crisis centers
- Community clinics
- Court systems
- Clinicians in private practice
If you feel that someone in your care may benefit from the compassionate, comprehensive, and expert treatment that we offer at Southcoast, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
