Once a referral is received, a consultation will be arranged with one of our psychiatrists, and if appropriate, referral will be made into the next available program.
Admission to our specialist unit is always on a voluntary basis, with patients understanding and accepting the need to actively participate in their own recovery process.
Patients staying at the Ramsay Clinic Coffs Harbour are assessed for inclusion in the Inpatient program by the treating psychiatrist and the intake officer.
A guidebook containing information about the therapy program and a workbook with educational information and handouts related to group sessions is then provided.
The psychologist and/or nursing staff will then do an orientation tour of the clinic and introduce the patient to our recovery-oriented practice.
