We encourage the potential client to make the referral whenever possible. However, we understand that is not always possible.  You may use the “make a referral link” to submit your referral, but we cannot schedule a bed date until the client has made written or verbal contact with us. An incarcerated loved one usually has an attorney or counselor who can assist them in making a referral as well.
