About Us

Created in response to an overwhelming need for pre-treatment consultation services, Acadia Healthcare’s exemplary team of Treatment Placement Specialists, or TPS, was created. This team was also established as a means of both assisting professionals in linking clientele to the services they need and alleviating the frustration and intimidation that can result when one is seeking out care for a mental health, behavioral health, and/or chemical dependency concern. It is for these reasons that the TPS team works closely with a vast array of healthcare professionals, as well as individuals in need of treatment, to determine the type and level of care required to elicit the most favorable treatment outcomes.

When a person participates in effective treatment that meets his or her needs, that individual is more likely to achieve his or her treatment goals and decrease his or her need for more intensive care in the future. The TPS team aims to help individuals access effective treatment, both through professional referrals and direct contact, and does so by providing the following to all who request TPS services:

  • Thorough assessment of each individual’s needs
  • Detailed information about treatment options
  • Individualized guidance that is focused on the needs of the person needing treatment
  • Beneficial care coordination between the individual and the most appropriate treatment center
  • Resources that will help the person reintegrate back into his or her respective community following the completion of treatment

Professionals who elect to work with the TPS team will ultimately have access to a variety of treatment options that can provide those they treat with the services needed to heal and recover in a lasting way. Furthermore, individuals who utilize TPS services are ultimately armed with the information that can empower them to make the most informed decisions about treatment.

Furthermore, and in keeping with the team’s initiative to help individuals access the care they need, the TPS team is national and possesses strong professional relationships with numerous treatment providers all across the country. In doing so, the following levels of care can be accessed by those who utilize TPS services:

  • Detoxification services
  • Residential treatment
  • Partial hospitalization programming (PHP)
  • Intensive outpatient programming (IOP)
  • Neuropsychological testing
  • Outdoor adventure-based treatment
  • Medication assisted treatment (MAT)

Additionally, the TPS team can serve as a gateway to a variety of specialty services, including:

  • Age-specific treatment
  • Disorder-specific treatment
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Faith-based treatment
  • Gender-specific treatment
  • Programming for military members and veterans
  • Programs that treat complex pain and mental health and/or substance use concerns

Lastly, if a type of care is needed that a provider within the TPS team’s network cannot provide, the team will work with the referring professional and/or individual to ensure that the person will still be connected to the services that he or she needs.

Yet another benefit to using TPS services has to do with the professionals with whom a person will be working. The TPS team is comprised of dedicated and compassionate individuals who strive to help people of all ages access the services they need to improve the quality of their lives. Regardless if a person ultimately requires more intensive treatment, such as residential care, or more supportive services following the completion of a higher level of care, such as PHP, the TPS team can help referring professionals, men, women, and young people alike find the treatment that can bring about healthier, more productive lives. TPS team is able to assist people in accessing the care required to overcome mental health, behavioral health, and/or chemical dependency concerns:

  • Addiction Specialists
  • Counselors
  • Nurses
  • Psychiatrists
  • Social Workers
  • Therapists

The TPS possess specialized training and are able to utilize their expertise and their national network of partners to connect those in need with the most appropriate treatment. At the same time the TPS team will work with professionals and individuals to locate a treatment program that is also cost-effective so as to reduce financial concerns as a barrier to receiving beneficial care.

If you are a healthcare professional treating an individual who is in need of another type of treatment or are someone who knows a person who is suffering from mental health, behavioral health, and/or chemical dependency concerns and is in need of assistance to determine and locate the most appropriate treatment, do not hesitate to contact Acadia Healthcare’s national TPS team.
