Addiction Treatment for a Client

About Referring a Client to The Ranch Pennsylvania

Commitment to Our Clients, Families, and Community

The Ranch at Pennsylvania offers partnerships both to refer clients out and for client referrals into our facility. With people seeking addiction and mental health treatment for a client from all over the country, it’s necessary for them to have a clinical professional to turn to for aftercare. We promise to keep you in constant communication. We provide weekly updates on your clients. The staff also allows you to speak with them so you can be sure they’re getting the care they need. When they leave, they have a discharge plan so you can pick up their aftercare. It is our goal to treat your patients as a part of our family at The Ranch Pennsylvania, and our team is ready to help.

If you have questions about referring a client or are interested in experiencing The Ranch Pennsylvania’s facilities and staff, we can help.
