Choosing to seek treatment for an addiction to heroin or prescription pain medications is a brave first step toward a recovered future. At Beloit Comprehensive Treatment Center, we understand the courage it takes to finally seek treatment, and we want to ensure those who entrust us with their care that we will do all in our power to make sure that their time with us is worthwhile and successful.
Those who elect to embark on the road to recovery at our center will partake in a truly personalized treatment experience that begins during the admissions process. Designed to be as productive and streamlined as possible, this process also ensures that all new patients are well informed about all aspects of the care that they will be receiving.
First, it is important for prospective patients to be aware of our pre-admissions criteria, which must be met in order to begin services:
- Must be age 18 or older
- Must reside with 50 miles of Beloit Comprehensive Treatment Center
- Must be opioid dependent for at least 1 year or more
If you or your loved one matches the above pre-admissions criteria, an intake appointment can be scheduled at our center. It should also be noted that patients are required to bring the following with them to their scheduled intake appointment:
- A valid form of identification that includes a photo of the patient and verifies the patient’s Wisconsin residence
- Proof of inactive prescription medications (if necessary)
- Fee for the intake assessment
- Insurance card (if intending on using insurance for payment)
- Approval for treatment from an obstetrician if currently pregnant
Prospective patients must be prepared to spend at least 2 hours at our center to complete their intake appointment. Within this window of time, the following will occur:
- Physical examination
- Drug test
- TB test (if one has not been done in the past year)
- All necessary admissions paperwork, including pertinent releases of information with other providers of care
Lastly, it is crucial for prospective patients to know that they are not guaranteed medication on their first day at our center. Any medication-related decisions are ultimately made by our medical team, which handles the prescribing and administration of medication on a case-by-case basis. However, know that our physicians always work with our patients’ best interests at heart.
If you or someone you care about would like to learn more about the treatment available at Beloit Comprehensive Treatment Center, or to schedule an intake appointment, feel free to contact our center at your convenience.
