Specialty Service Patient Referrals

Acadia Healthcare’s nationwide team of Treatment Placement Specialists® (TPS) have relationships with numerous providers that offer specialized services so that men, women, and young people can receive the treatment they need to overcome mental health concerns, substance abuse, eating disorders, chronic pain, and trauma-based behavioral disorders.

Among the various types of specialty programs and services that the TPS team has access to and can link clients with include, but are not limited to, the following:

Neuropsychological Testing

For those who are in need of testing services in order to receive a conclusive diagnosis for a mental health concern, the TPS team can arrange for an individual to meet with a mental health professional to receive neuropsychological testing. Upon completion of such testing services, Acadia’s TPS team can then link the individual with follow-up services if needed.

Disorder-Specific Treatment

Certain mental illnesses, such as eating disorders, warrant specialized services that focus on treating symptoms in the most beneficial way possible. During a person’s assessment with a TPS team member, it can be determined if disorder-specific treatment is needed and the most appropriate type of care can then be recommended thereafter.

Programs that Treat Complex Pain

Many individuals who are grappling with mental health and/or chemical dependency concerns also suffer from other conditions that cause chronic or complex pain. In the event treatment is needed by these individuals, it is advantageous for them to engage in programming that addresses the multifaceted nature of chronic or complex pain so that they too are able to reach their treatment goals. The TPS team is qualified to determine when this type of treatment is needed and can refer to a number of programs within its network.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Battling substance abuse and a mental illness or illnesses requires specialized care so that individuals grappling with such concerns can achieve recovery and healing in a meaningful way. TPS team members are trained to assess both types of issues and can advise clients to consider dual diagnosis treatment if it is believed that this type of care will garner the most favorable treatment outcomes.

Gender-Specific Treatment

Because males and females have specific treatment requirements and can sometimes benefit from a treatment experience that includes individuals of only the same gender, the TPS network of providers features numerous programs that supply gender-specific treatment. When it is warranted or deemed necessary to an individual’s recovery, this type of care can be included as a recommendation following the completion of an assessment with TPS staff.

Services for Military Members

Given the unique treatment needs of active and inactive military service members, as well as veterans of the United States Armed Forces, several programs have been created to supply treatment for this very special population of men, women, and their families. So as to facilitate this type of care, the TPS team has established relationships with several of these programs so that individuals in need of mental health or substance abuse care can receive the treatment they need.

Age-Specific Treatment

Whether speaking in terms of young people, adults of advanced age, and everyone in between, much can be said about the benefits of receiving age-specific mental health and/or substance abuse treatment. Acadia’s TPS team is attuned to the benefits of this type of treatment, and has the ability to recommend age-specific treatment when it is deemed most appropriate to a client’s short- and long-term treatment goals.

Faith-Based Programming

Being able to blend an individual’s faith into the healing process can have a profound impact on a person. For this reason, the TPS team is pleased to have partnerships with several treatment centers that offer faith-based care to men, women, and young people who are in need of transformative care to overcome mental health, behavioral, and/or substance use concerns. Depending on the needs of the individual or if it is requested by the individual contacting TPS, this type of treatment can be presented as a recommendation for care.
