How to Make a Referral

We invite you to partner with us.

Like everything at Ocean Drive, the referral and admissions process is fluid and flexible. We work closely with you to meet clients and families where they are. 

The first step

To make a referral to Ocean Drive, or to request more information about our programs, please contact us at 800-216-9512 or fill out an online form. We’d love to learn more about you and your client before initiating the admissions process.

The admissions process

When you or your client is ready to take the next step toward treatment, we invite you to have a conversation with Ocean Drive’s Director of Admissions, Ernest Bradshaw . Ernest has an extensive background in addiction treatment, family systems, dual diagnosis, eating disorders, and adult programming. He also has extensive experience working with families and referents. Ernest will guide you, your client, and his or her family through every step of the admissions process.  


We frequently work with interventionists nationwide. We are more than happy to refer you to qualified interventionists and coordinate arrangements for admission following a successful intervention. 


Because Ocean Drive is not an acute care facility, clients who have recently abused substances must undergo detox before beginning treatment. We can refer your client to one of our local partner facilities or suggest a facility in your area.
