Professional Referrals

Carolina House proudly serves males and females 17 and older in North and South Carolina struggling with eating disorders as well as other co-occurring disorders.

Professional Referral Sources

At Carolina House, we welcome outside referrals. We value our relationships with other professionals and enjoy the close working relationships we have built with many professionals from varying disciplines over the years. When another professional contacts us with a potential referral, we pride ourselves on being a responsive resource to help our referents determine the best placement option for clients.

We encourage those who feel we may be of service to contact us any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We commonly receive referrals from a wide range of sources, including:

  • Primary care physicians
  • Therapists
  • Social workers
  • Dietitians
  • School counselors

We are happy to speak with anyone who feels we may be of help and can determine if a prospective client’s needs can be met by our world-class programming.

How We Work With Referrals

We believe that good communication between our staff and our referents is cornerstone to effective treatment. When a fellow treatment professional refers a potential new client to us, our Clinical Director will obtain a release of information and contact the treatment professional to gather information. After admission, each new client’s primary therapist becomes a point of contact, and the therapist will discuss with referents and family members how often they would like to receive updates. The therapist will also call to confirm admission and discharge.

We work closely with referral sources to ensure that referents and family members continue to be an integral part of each client’s healing process throughout the client’s time with us. For answers to specific questions about the referral process or to learn more about our program, we encourage potential referents to contact us at their earliest convenience.
