How do I refer to Nema? 

Have a patient in mind? Referrals happen two ways:

  • Tell your patient about Nema, and have them contact us directly. We will then call you for more information prior to initiating care for them.
  • Complete this HIPAA-compliant form, and we will contact your patient within 24-48 business hours. This method is preferred if you are concerned that the patient won’t make contact on their own.

Do I need to diagnose PTSD before I refer to Nema?

No. You can refer to us without a formal PTSD diagnosis. All patients will receive a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation from an expert clinician before starting care at Nema. During this evaluation, our clinician will work to determine an appropriate diagnosis for your patient.

What can my patient expect after I submit a referral?

After you refer your patient, we will contact them within 24-48 business hours. We will explain our model of care to them and discuss pricing. If they are interested in proceeding, we will also contact you (and any other outpatient mental health providers) for an update and keep you apprised of their progress through the program.

What happens after my patient completes Nema treatment?

If your patient has completed a release of information, you will receive a copy of your patient’s discharge summary and a phone call to update you on their progress. Many patients also want to discuss their treatment or practice their skills learned at Nema with their outpatient provider. To assist therapists in helping patients after discharge, we send every provider a cognitive processing therapy (CPT) tip sheet and a copy of CPT worksheets. The tip sheet and worksheets help orient providers to CPT and offer guidance on how best to support patients who would like to discuss CPT skills.

Will my patient need follow-up sessions with Nema?

After completion of intensive treatment, we will follow-up with patients on a monthly cadence to check in on their trauma symptoms. During these check-ins we ask patients to complete a PTSD symptom scale called the PCL-5 to monitor symptom severity. We also offer patients “booster” sessions to address any lingering PTSD symptoms.
