How to Refer and Individual to TAPNET

TAPNET accepts written and verbal referrals from individuals concerned about the practice of a counselor in the state of Texas.  A person who is required by law to report an impaired professional to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) satisfies that requirement if the person reports the professional to TAPNET.  TAPNET shall notify the person making the report and DSHS, if the person who was reported gives written consent or in cases where a professional referred to TAPNET refuses to comply with the guidelines of the program.

Texas law provides civil immunity for those who report a counselor in good faith.
A referral may be made in two ways: 
  • By telephone to an intake coordinator at 1-877-4TAPNET (between 8:00 a.m. and 5 p.m., M-F). All verbal referrals need to be followed with written documentation to fulfill the mandatory reporting requirements.
  • By completing the PDF Referral Form available here, make sure to include all relevant documentation.  The completed referral form may be mailed to TAPNET at:  401 Ranch Road 620 S Suite 310 Austin, TX 78734

If you have questions about whether a referral is warranted please call TAPNET for assistance at 1-877-4TAPNET.
