If you are a mental health or medical professional, you may occasionally meet a client in need of specialized care outside of your service range. Blue Ridge works with many professionals for referrals to residential treatment.
Who Sends Referrals
Some professionals that commonly send us referrals include:
- Insurance companies
- Crisis stabilization units
- Detoxification facilities
- Sober living homes
- Counseling centers
- Treatment placement specialists
When someone can no longer function adequately in their regular daily activities due to a substance use disorder, we welcome you to call Blue Ridge. After one phone call, you will know whether we are the right program to meet the needs of your client. Our assessment service specialists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in person, by phone, or through email, at no charge. We will provide you with information about treatment options and insurance coverage for treatment, and we can schedule an immediate appointment for an initial phone assessment or an in-person evaluation. If, after discussing your client's needs, we find that our program does not fit the needs of your client, we can also provide you with alternate program referrals.
Involvement in Your Client's Care
If you are a behavioral healthcare professional with a client that may need a residential addiction treatment program, please call our admissions department. After obtaining appropriate consents, our professional staff will keep you informed of your client’s progress in their individualized detox and/or rehab treatment program through written or verbal updates.
We know the importance of maintaining contact with as many supportive individuals in your client's life to ensure the best outcome. To that end, we will closely involve you in his or her continuing care plan, which is critical to successful long-term recovery from substance use disorder.
We want to involve any treatment providers we can in order to better understand the client. We look at what we are doing as providing a service for them and we deeply value your knowledge and input in regards to your client. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your client's condition or treatment, you are always welcome to contact us.
