Professional Referrals

At Huntington Creek Recovery Center, our ability to provide the most beneficial care to men and women in need is enhanced by the many productive relationships we have developed with professionals who refer individuals to our program. These collaborative relationships help to ensure that men and women who have been struggling with substance abuse and certain co-occurring disorders have the opportunity to receive focused comprehensive services that can meet their immediate needs while simultaneously preparing them to experience long-term success.

The Benefits of Our Referral Network

In addition to valuing the many ongoing relationships that we have maintained with therapists, hospitals, private-practice doctors, and other professionals, we also welcome the opportunity to connect with others whose patients or clients can benefit from our services. Our referral network offers many benefits, the most important of which are ensuring that men and women in need receive the comprehensive care and coordinated services that will ensure a successful treatment experience, a smooth transition out of residential care, and continued successful recovery.

The first step in referring an individual to Huntington Creek Recovery Center is ensuring that the man or woman in question meets the criteria for admission into our program. While each person is evaluated for admission based upon his or her specific needs, the following are the general characteristics that typically qualify a person to receive care at Huntington Creek Recovery Center:

  • Huntington Creek Recovery Center is designed to treat adult men and women, ages 18 and above.
  • Huntington Creek Recovery Center patients must have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder. Alcohol use disorder, cannabis use disorder, stimulant use disorder, and opioid use disorder are among the more common substance use disorders among Huntington Creek Recovery Center patients, though individuals with other forms of addiction or chemical dependency are not excluded from treatment at our center.
  • Men and women whose primary substance use disorder is accompanied by certain co-occurring mental health disorders may also be admitted into Huntington Creek Recovery Center. Depressive disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and anxiety disorders are among the more common co-occurring disorders for which individuals receive care at Huntington Creek Recovery Center. Individuals who are struggling with other co-occurring disorders may be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis.
  • In order to be accepted into Huntington Creek Recovery Center, prospective patients who are struggling with co-occurring mental illnesses must be safely stabilized and must not pose an imminent risk to themselves or others.

Our Referral Process

To ensure that men and women who can benefit from our services and who meet our admissions criteria are able to begin receiving care as quickly as possible, and with respect for the time of the professionals who refer patients to us, we have worked to make our referral process as efficient and effective as possible. Professionals may start this process with a simple phone call. Referrals may also be identified by the admission staff when the patient calls in for an admission assessment.

After a referred patient completes the admission process, and is successfully admitted to our center, we will contact the referral source to inform him or her of the patient’s safe arrival and admission.

We feel as though effective communication with the referral source is also a valuable business practice. It also ensures a healthier continuum of care for the patient as the referral source is generally someone who has worked with the patient in a clinical setting, or has some type of special interest in his or her recovery. We are eager to work with professionals who have treated our patients prior to their admission, as we feel as though the patient’s response to treatment in other settings is an important part of the process to develop accurate treatment plans.

How We Work With You

Generally, the initial contact with the referring professional will be made by one of our residential staff members, who will provide the referring professional with basic updates and will inform him or her that the patient’s primary counselor will be contacting him or her in the near future. The primary counselor will provide a clinical update on the patient’s initial adjustment. The primary counselor will also be responsible for updating the referral source on a weekly basis. If the referring professional requests special reports, paperwork, or a visit or conference with the patient, these will be arranged by the primary counselor as well.

At Huntington Creek Recovery Center we understand that a patient’s time with us is just one phase of his or her long-term recovery process, and we work diligently to ensure that our patients have a comprehensive post-discharge support system in place. It is also our practice to consult with referring professionals prior to making aftercare plans for their patients or clients. We recognize how important and beneficial it can be for the referral source to be a part of the aftercare planning process if he or she chooses to do so, as this practice promotes a healthy continuum of care.

Effective communication between our program and the professionals who work with our patients can be an essential component of this comprehensive support system, and we will be sure to refer the patient back to the referring professional when clinically appropriate and in the patient’s best interests.
