We look for quality psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors, therapists, dieticians and other treatment professionals in all areas to refer our residents upon discharge. There are also many times when our admissions department receives calls from clients or families that are not appropriate for a Discovery program. In these cases, we provide resources for families looking for specialists in their areas. Simply complete the following online form to get started in our Professional Partner Network.
