Vermilion Behavioral Health Systems accepts direct admissions from a variety of referral sources in the community. We are committed to making the referral, assessment, and admission process as pleasant, timely, and informative as possible. We strive for all of our patients to have a smooth transition into our treatment programs and for their families and referral sources to be certain of our commitment to patient safety, care, and wellness.
Professionals may directly refer a potential patient for admission to any one of our programs by simply contacting the Assessment & Referral Department and speaking to one of our A&R Specialists. Our team of Assessment and Referral (A&R) Specialists is ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take your call and answer any questions. 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. You can also obtain additional information in order to present your recommendations for the referral to your patient. If it is determined that our treatment center is appropriate for your patient, the admission process will begin immediately.
Providers can also help a client access treatment by having them call our intake/admissions department independently. You can inform patients that they can even walk into our facility to schedule a free confidential evaluation with one of our mental health professionals at any time.
At Vermilion 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 to regularly communicate with you to provide you with updates on your patient’s progress within the bounds of confidentiality. We are also aware that you know your patients far better than we do when they arrive, and will request whatever information you can provide us that will better help us meet the needs of each individual referred to us. 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.
