Thank you for referring to American Behavioral! As we work together to help save lives, we would like to make sure that our referral process is as simple as possible. Please use this Referral Process Guide when calling to refer a client, to ensure quick and easy bed date scheduling.


When calling to refer a client for inpatient services, please be prepared with the following:

  1. Have a completed Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Assessment faxed to (509)381-3516 or emailed to
  2. Call (866)729-8038 to let us know you have faxed or emailed over an assessment, and that you would like to schedule a bed date.
    -You may also fill out our Admissions Form with the date you’d like to start treatment. Our admissions team will review and reach out to you with our availability.



Referent must have the client call and speak with admissions!

  1. Client must call and speak with an admission screener to complete a phone screen and verify insurance.
  2. An admissions screener will follow-up to schedule a bed date if medically cleared, within 24 hours.
    – If not medically cleared, an admissions screener will follow-up with next steps.
