Behavioral Health Referrals

If you know someone who’s experiencing mental health or substance abuse challenges, refer him or her to Adventist HealthCare’s Behavioral Health & Wellness Services. We often take referrals from other treatment programs, social-service professionals, schools, hospitals, clergy, managed care organizations and family members.
