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 with any referral paperwork and we contact the client to schedule their initial appointment.
During the initial call, one of our administrative staff 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, and the initial intake/assessment fee of $80.00 or insurance information. If applicable, we will be sure to get any needed releases of information signed in the initial appointment so we can communicate with you and/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 (317.672.6312) 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.
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 accepts Medicaid and is a participating provider in the Recovery Works program and the Indiana Problem Gambling Awareness Program. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about financial and funding options for clients.
We are a Medicaid Provider and are also able to bill third-party insurance for clients receiving individual counseling. 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 the necessary release of information forms 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.
