THE ROLE OF THE REFERRAL SOURCE
The referral source is considered an important link to a patient’s recovery and—when appropriate—will be considered part of the treatment team.
As long as releases are signed, we will notify the referrer once the patient arrives. We will maintain communication with the referral source while the patient is in treatment on a weekly basis, either by faxed note or phone call. Referrals will be involved in aftercare planning and notified once a scheduled discharge has been arranged.
The development of professional relationships helps create a strong, mutually beneficial relationship in local communities across the country. If you offer continuing care services or have an addiction practice, and would like to be included as a resource, please contact The Farley Center at 888.707.3220.
