How to Refer a Patient for Addiction Treatment


The Farley Center admits patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our admissions coordinators are available to discuss patient history and medical necessity, arrange admissions, facilitate transportation, schedule evaluations, and assist with insurance verification. While referral sources can make the direct call to our admissions department, individuals may also self-refer to Farley or be referred by family members, physicians, community-based drug and alcohol programs, employee assistance professionals, interventionists, and private therapists.


Admission to The Farley Center requires the patient to be medically stable and willing to be alcohol and drug free. When contacting the admissions office, please have the following information available:

  • name, address, and phone number of prospective patient
  • date of birth and social security number
  • extent and nature of the problem, including areas of concern and information to assist in treatment planning
  • insurance Information
  • name, address, agency, and phone number of referral source (if applicable)

We encourage inquiries to be made during business hours (8:00 am–5:00 pm) in order to ensure verification of benefits. Once confirmed, the admissions staff will arrange a convenient date and time for the patient to be admitted.
