How the Retreat South referral process works
We accept Retreat South clients based on previous history, the desire for making change and the case put forward by the referring individual.
While we want to help as many people as possible break cycles with negative behaviour and restore them to a healthy and happy lifestyle, we also recognise that the drive for change needs to be found within the person who needs it the most.
When you refer a family member or patient to our program, we will take a look at their previous history, the treatments they have received in the past, and have a candid interview with you as the referee before proceeding. We of course will also speak to the individual in question as we believe respect, honesty and the feeling of safety are key pillars within recovery. We work with all our clients to build trust, foster an open flow of ideas and feelings and to work towards creating a happier, healthier and more resilient individual. This can only come through establishing a consensual and therapeutic relationship.
Even if a client is not suitable for Retreat South, we can help you with suggestions and referrals within our professional network. Accepted candidates will begin their journey just like any other client to Retreat South- with a focus on reflecting, restoring and building resilience. You are welcome to stay abreast of their progress by contacting us at any time.
Please understand that due to the nature of the process, your family member or client’s privacy is respected during treatment.
Whether you’re a concerned loved one or a professional seeking additional support for a client, Retreat South is here to help. Please download our referral form and call to arrange a consultation with our clinical director.
