Professional Referent & Facility Collaboration

Acadia Healthcare develops and maintains partnerships with professionals in the behavioral healthcare industry with the goal of ensuring that the communities we serve receive the benefits of clinical collaboration.

Corporate Collaboration

Acadia Healthcare’s ongoing mission is to increase access to treatment for those in need. Through ongoing expansions, joint ventures, and partnerships with reputable organizations, Acadia Healthcare continues to expand the services we offer and meet an ever-growing need for behavioral healthcare treatment.

Acadia Healthcare’s corporate department plays an active role in the operations of every facility within its treatment network. Our national sales teams advocate for greater access to care through a centralized effort that spans across all levels of our organization. Our corporate leadership and operations teams work closely with professionals at the facility level to ensure that patients are receiving the utmost in quality care.

Through open communication, professional collaboration, and an in-depth understanding of the crucial roles that every member of our team at every level fulfills, we have been able to create a network of treatment facilities that share the vision of providing the most comprehensive, innovative, and clinically sound behavioral healthcare services available.

Fostering Professional Partnerships

As an international provider of behavioral healthcare services, Acadia Healthcare recognizes that providing the best treatment experience for patients requires a team-centered approach. In order to ensure that those in our care receive the most optimal treatment services available, we dedicate ourselves to bringing together teams of people who have diverse backgrounds and complementary skillsets to benefit those in our care.

This team-centered approach extends beyond the professionals within our organization. We recognize and appreciate the diverse contributions of experts and other treatment professionals from various disciplines within the behavioral healthcare industry. We value the insight we receive from outside professionals and strive to continuously develop and grow these relationships so that we can be a beneficial resource to the communities we serve.

Acadia Healthcare works closely with physicians, mental health professionals, public service officials, government leaders, and organizations outside of our network. These relationships build upon the foundation of successful treatment and allow us to ensure that individuals in need are receiving the highest quality of care.

Referring to an Acadia Healthcare Facility

When you are working with a patient who needs a level of care that you do not provide, Acadia Healthcare wants to make the process of referring as streamlined as possible. With a network of treatment facilities that spans across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom, we are proud to offer an unparalleled range of treatment options to choose from.

The referral process begins by making an initial call to the intake or admissions departments at the facility of your choosing. Our knowledgeable team members will gather all of the information that you can provide us with, and then request any additional information necessary for determining if that facility is able to provide your patient with the specific type and level of care they need. If you and our team are in agreement about a patient’s appropriateness for treatment at that facility, the staff will guide you in scheduling an appointment for your patient or in starting the admissions process.

If you choose to refer a patient to one of Acadia’s treatment facilities, you will be joining a partnership that extends beyond that referral. The staff at our facilities will do everything in their power to maintain your role in your patient’s recovery journey. At your request and with consent from the patient, we will provide you with regular updates on their treatment progress and offer any other information that is relevant to your patient’s ongoing care.
