Make a referral

At Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, we ensure a smooth referral experience for both patients and referring providers. Continuity of care is paramount to our mission. Referred patients receive a behavioral health assessment by a licensed professional, who consults with the referring provider on the appropriate level of care. Walk-in assessments are available daily in our main hospital in Naperville, and appointments can be scheduled at our outpatient centers in Naperville, Hinsdale, St. Charles, Mokena, Plainfield, and Woodridge. 

To refer a patient, providers should call, or have their patient call, our 24/7 Helpline at 630-305-5027.

Assistance with a patient referral

The referral process can be complex. We realize that providers may have questions about the process or collateral contact. We can help with patient referrals.

For special assistance with a referral or situation, providers are encouraged to contact our community liaisons before or after referring a patient. Our community liaisons are available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Our community liaisons can help with the logistics of the referral process and address your concerns, questions or feedback. The liaison is available to help you connect with staff when appropriate.

To contact a community liaison, email us or call 630-646-5150.

Referring a student

Linden Oaks provides school staff with information on community and in-house resources. The team of licensed professionals offers 24/7 support for information, resources, and assessments for students with behavioral health issues. Adolescents can be referred to our school refusal program by various sources or walk in for a confidential assessment. Assessments are strictly confidential, and our staff ensures consistent communication and a smooth school transition for students, regardless of the recommended level of care.
