While a certain percentage of our clients are self-referred, many come to us on the request of family physicians, emergency room doctors, psychiatrists, substance abuse counselors, or family therapists. We work closely with health professionals within the community to expedite admissions in acute cases, and to collaborate in treatment planning. Throughout treatment, we can provide updates on your patient, per your request.
