Professional Referrals

At Wilmington Treatment Center, we value our relationships with other professionals, and we look forward to expanding our ability to coordinate with counselors, therapists, and other treatment providers for the betterment of our patients.

We accept referrals from many different sources and are eager to work with our patients’ referents to ensure we are providing the highest quality care. Our referrals come from many different sources, including the following:

  • Hospitals
  • Substance abuse programs
  • Individual therapists
  • Medical providers
  • Lawyers
  • Military SARP/ASAP/Command
  • EAPs

While these are our most common referral sources, we also are happy to accept referrals from other sources as well.

Our treatment philosophy is based on effective continuity of care and collaborative treatment. As a result, upon receiving a referral, our admissions staff will process a release of information (ROI) form. Once signed by the prospective patient, this form will allow us to communicate with the referral source. With a signed ROI, we will then be able to communicate regularly with our referral sources about the progress that their referred patient is making in treatment. The patient’s primary counselor and discharge planners will be in contact with the referral source during the patient’s entire stay with us, and when it is time for our patients to discharge, we will work closely with each referral source to ensure that our patients will be discharged to a supportive environment that will facilitate their continued growth and sobriety.

If you would like to learn more about referring a client or patient to Wilmington Treatment Center, please feel free to contact us at your convenience. We look forward to working with you.

Wilmington Treatment Center saved my life, plain and simple. I arrived broken, lost and with no hope but Wilmington introduced me to a better way of living and I owe a huge part of my life to them.
