Sonora Behavioral Health clinicians are able to provide comprehensive assessment and referral services from a variety of referral sources. Professionals may directly refer a potential patient for admission to any one of our programs by simply contacting our assessment and referral department by phone or fax.
Our professionally staffed assessment and referral department is able to take your call 24/7 and can answer any questions you may have. Our staff will be able to discuss our programs with you so you can determine whether what we offer is the best fit for your patient. If it is determined that our treatment center is appropriate for your patient, the evaluator will begin the intake process and schedule a face-to-face assessment.
Providers should supply our Assessment and Referral Department the following information:
- Demographics / Face Sheet
- Physician or practitioner note from day of transfer, which must indicate the patient is in need of psychiatric care and has no acute medical need.
- Current Medication List
- Labs (please send any labs if they been completed: chem panel, CBC, UTOX, BAL, HCG, glucose, Depakote/lithium level if indicated, any diagnostic tests if done i.e. CXR, EEG, MRI, etc.)
At Sonora Behavioral Health we value all of our referral sources and understand how much you care about your patients. It is important to us not only to provide the best available care for your patients, but also to regularly communicate with you to provide updates on your patient’s progress. It is our objective to work hand in hand with you to help your patients get back on track so they can regain hope for a positive future.
