Professional Substance Use Disorder Referrals



There may be times when your patient/client requires additional support for a substance use disorder. And their drug or alcohol use may be causing problems in their marriage, at their job or preventing them from living a healthy lifestyle. Sanford Addiction Treatment Centers can provide your client with the help they need. As well as walk you through the process of enrolling them in a higher level of care or outpatient programs that augment therapy.

Sanford works with a wide range of professionals in the community. Referring professionals such as primary care physicians, nurses, clergy members, private practice clinicians, interventionists, legal experts and a variety of other professionals aid in the coordination of care for individuals seeking treatment for alcohol and drug misuse and dependency.

Our staff, at all levels, values partnerships with professional referral sources and works to identify an appropriate plan tailored to meet the needs of men and women seeking alcohol and/or drug treatment.

We also work with professional monitoring organizations and collaborate with them to ensure successful recovery of each individual. We are there to assist our clients in returning to their careers and utilizing their skills, education and experience in lifelong recovery.

At Sanford we believe that each individual seeking treatment plays an active role in choosing the services that will support their own long-term pathway and style of recovery.

Sanford is always looking for ways to expand services among community professionals, agencies, businesses, and providers. We hope to provide awareness by exploring ways to integrate services to better support individuals in their treatment and recovery journey.
