Rader Programs works in conjunction with referring therapists to ensure a smooth transition into the program. The referring therapist’s connection with Rader Programs does not end at admission but rather begins, as the referring therapist is integrated and becomes an intricate member of the treatment team.
Referring therapists receive weekly updates from our multi-disciplinary treatment staff on the progress the individual is making during treatment. Referring therapists are encouraged to participate in person or via teleconference in the program’s weekly clinical case conferences. During the clinical case conferences, individualized weekly treatment plans are developed with input from all members of the treatment team including the referring therapist. Prior to discharge, the referring therapist is contacted to participate in discharge planning. As part of the discharge planning process, all individuals are referred back to the referring therapist for ongoing outpatient treatment. The treatment team is not allowed to participate in the outpatient treatment of referred individuals. Following discharge, referring therapists receive a written discharge summary of the individual’s progress throughout treatment.
