Making a Referral

The process for making an initial appointment at LRC is very simple. You may call and make the appointment for the client yourself, or you may instruct the client to call. Our number is (317) 887-3290. If you'd prefer that our office make initial contact with the client, simply send us this completed REFERRAL FORM and we will call the client to schedule their initial appointment.


During the initial call, one of our administrative assistants will gather basic information about the client and schedule their initial appointment. We ask that clients be sure to bring a photo I.D., any referral and/or legal paperwork (if applicable), and the initial intake/assessment fee of $60.00. If applicable, we will be sure to get any needed releases of information signed in the initial appointment so we can communicate with you or your agency on the client's progress in treatment.


Any information you can share regarding the client's needs is helpful (as always, please make sure you have a signed release). For criminal justice clients, please e-mail or fax (317.887.6894) any referral and/or legal paperwork beforehand if possible. Please see below for referral information specific to the different types of services and programming we offer.


Financial Assistance

We have financial assistance and a sliding-fee scale available for clients who qualify. We screen every client for financial assistance and funding assistance eligibility. Please note, Life Recovery Center is a participating provider in the Recovery Works program and the Indiana Problem Gambling Awareness Program.  Please feel free to call us with any questions about financial and funding options for clients.



We are also able to bill third-party insurance for clients receiving individual counseling. We are not able to accept insurance for clients receiving group therapy sessions at this time. If a client does not have insurance, this is NOT A PROBLEM! We specialize in treating individuals who are uninsured and can assure you that our rates are just as cheap or cheaper than most insurance co-pays. We will do everything we can to make treatment affordable for anyone and everyone; regardless of their current financial situation.



Communicating with referral sources is part of our specialty. We treat clients referred from a variety of sources including probation offices, courts, medical doctors, attorneys, military, DOT, MICCS, DCS, EAPs, re-entry programs, and more. In our initial meeting with the client, we will obtain consents for the release of information so we can communicate with the client's referral source(s) as needed. We pride ourselves on helping our clients ensure that they are complying with any mandated requirements and do all we can to make sure that referral sources have accurate information promptly. We can send progress reports on a weekly, monthly, or even daily basis as needed. 


Referral Information on Specific Services 

Substance Abuse & Addiction, Mental Health, and Disordered Gambling Referrals: The client's initial appointment will include multiple screenings and a bio-psycho-social assessment as well as all of the intake paperwork and enrollment agreements for services (if needed). With a signed release, you will be notified immediately of our findings and the recommended course of treatment, etc. A schedule of our groups is available here.


PRIME For Life Education Referrals: The client simply needs to call our office and register for an upcoming class. We offer PRIME Education courses on weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday).  A schedule of our PRIME classes is available here. With our convenient schedule, clients can complete their PRIME obligation in a single weekend! More info on PRIME For Life Education classes can be found here.


Domestic Violence Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) and Anger Management Referrals: The client simply needs to show up 10-15 minutes early for one of the BIP or Anger Management groups listed on our schedule. The facilitator will meet with them before the start of the group session and again afterward to answer any questions, orient them to the program, and fill out the enrollment paperwork.  


Individual Therapy Referrals: Yourself or the client may call our office and schedule an initial appointment with one of our therapists. We can bill third-party insurance providers for individual counseling with several of our therapists.
