Professional Referrals

At Covington Behavioral Health Hospital, we are proud to have developed strong working relationships with professionals who refer patients to us for treatment, and we always welcome the opportunity to expand our referral network.

Traditionally, the majority of referrals to Covington Behavioral Health Hospital have come from hospital emergency rooms. However, we have accepted and continue to admit patients who have been referred to us by a variety of professionals, including but not limited to counselors, therapists, physicians, hospitals, and other psychiatric treatment centers.

Covington Behavioral Health Hospital is prepared to provide psychiatric services and therapeutic interventions to adult men and women ages 18 and above. The following is a partial list of the most common disorders experienced by individuals who are referred to our center.

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depressive disorders
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Polysubstance abuse
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Schizophrenia

Our initial goal when working with a referral source is to make the process as efficient and effective as possible. Referring professionals can start the intake process with one phone call to our Intake Department. Assessments to determine a prospective patient’s suitability for our services can be performed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If the referring professional desires to receive updates on the patient’s progress while in our care, we are happy to coordinate care once we have received written permission to do so from the patient or his or her family members. If appropriate, when the patient has completed treatment, we can include a referral back to the initial referring professional as part of the patient’s post-discharge plan.

Covington Behavioral Health Hospital places a premium on maintaining consistent, open, and transparent communication with referring professionals. To learn more about referring a client to us, or for answers to any questions that you may have about any aspect of our program, please do not hesitate to contact us at your convenience. We look forward to answering all of your questions and working with you for the betterment of the men and women who can benefit from our services.

I am grateful for the treatment I received at Covington Behavioral Health. I felt like an individual rather than a patient and I am so thankful.
