As a healthcare professional, your involvement in all phases of a patient’s treatment is essential. From referral and treatment planning to aftercare coordination and follow-up, we work closely with you and other professionals to ensure there is a coordinated system of treatment. With consent, we work together with you on admission and discharge planning and request your involvement as part of the treatment team, which includes:

  • Participation by telephone or in-person
  • Family therapy meetings
  • Providing regular communication updates
  • Advisement of discharge and aftercare planning
  • Arrangement of continuing care options and coordination.

We have specialized programs for children and adolescences. When treating, with the family’s permission, we will also involve therapists, school counselors, elders, ministers, or other professionals in the youth’s community who the family believes to have an important role in the child’s continued progress after leaving North Star.
