- Insurance: Most insurance carriers have referrals for mental health and substance abuse counseling centers.
- Local College or University Services: Some four-year colleges and universities staff a community clinic. These clinics may offer a sliding scale for payment.
- Physicians: Your primary care physician may be able to provide you with a referral.
- Personal Referral: You may be able to receive a recommendation from family or friends.
- United Way: Your local United Way can provide referrals for counseling centers and services in your area. Referrals may be to a non-profit organization which may have a sliding scale for payment.
