Referral Process

Referral is generally arranged through a health professional, often a general practitioner, counsellor/psychotherapist/psychologist or psychiatrist.  Urgent referrals can be made by telephone, while less urgent referrals can be made via letter, fax, email, or the website.

Access to our inpatient and day patient services differs, depending on how the prospective patient is to fund their treatment.  Details of each main funding process can be found on our website.  Funding types include:

  • Private Paying Patients
  • Ministry of Health
  • Accident Compensation Corporation

Using an individualised combination of medical, psychiatric, educational and therapeutic interventions Ashburn has a good track record of success, particularly when it comes to those needing a period of inpatient treatment to break the addiction cycle.

With increasing demand for this specific inpatient service, Ashburn offers a focused, intensive time-limited, abstinence-based programme aimed directly at adults motivated to recover from addictive behaviours.  Ashburn’s Addiction Programme has two distinct phases of Assessment and Treatment and follows detoxification which can either occur prior to admission or at Ashburn Clinic.
