FAQs for Referral Sources
The CMC:Berkshires team has a deep appreciation for outpatient treatment. We have been running our outpatient program since 2004, and we believe outpatient is the preferred and appropriate treatment option for most clients. Outpatient treatment has the ability to help people learn life-changing skills while staying engaged in their day-to-day life. We also know that as the outpatient provider, you are a wealth of information about your client. We have had too many experiences ourselves where we felt that the information we had to offer an inpatient team was not used as well as it could have been to benefit our client’s inpatient stay. We respect how much work goes into helping someone make the decision to come to residential treatment and recognize that getting to that point can be a bumpy road. We value your input and will be interacting with you throughout the process (assuming your referral allows us to include you).
Before your client is admitted, they will have an in-depth phone screen with one of our senior clinicians, both to provide the client with information about our facility and to make sure that they are an appropriate referral. Part of this screen will involve calling you to get your perspective on your client to help us determine whether CMC:Berkshires is a good fit.
Below are answers to frequently asked questions about the referral process. If you have any additional questions, please contact us directly, and you will be put in touch with one of our directors.
