Admissions Process

Addiction is a disease, not a choice – and The Redbourne believes it must be treated as such. Treating the disease of addiction necessitates the understanding of co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis and comorbidities.

Obtaining a full picture of a patient’s physical and psychological state is a crucial prerequisite to admission.

Achieving this critical balance in a patient’s health and securing appropriate, patient-specific, long-term care demands medical evaluation and requires us to provide feedback to a family doctor or psychiatrist.

The impact of addiction on mental wellbeing should be assessed by a psychiatrist before inpatient referral. But if a psychiatrist is not available, a referral from the patient’s family doctor is The Redbourne’s minimum admission requirement.

Psychiatric evaluation is so important that if psychiatric care is not available to a patient, The Redbourne will make an appointment with a psychiatrist for when the patient arrives.
We use a combination of medical and mental wellbeing evaluations to provide the most effective, personalised treatment programme.

If prospective patients are having difficulty in gaining access to a referring doctor or psychiatrist, please contact The Redbourne and we will help to make the necessary appointments.
