At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we strive to make the admissions process one that is as streamlined and comfortable as possible. In order to ensure that this occurs, we ask that clients set aside anywhere between two and four hours for the entire intake process. Within this 2-4 hour time window, our staff is able to determine if the services we provide will be of the most benefit in meeting all of the prospective client’s unique needs. During this 2-4 hour time period, prospective clients can expect to take part in the following:
- Physical exam
- Drug test
- TB test (unless the individual has received one within the last 2 years)
- Completion of necessary paper work
- Pregnancy test (women only)
Prospective clients interested in receiving treatment at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers can contact our intake staff to gather information about the specific services we offer or to schedule an intake. Those appropriate for the services offered must meet the following criteria in order to schedule an intake and begin treatment:
- Must be age 18 or older
- Must have a history of opiate dependence for a year or more, or have a history of abusing opiate medications
- Must not have an active prescription for opiate medications
Once an intake has been scheduled, prospective clients should bring the following to the intake appointment:
- A valid photo ID, of which can include a driver’s license, state ID, or passport
- Intake fee, regardless of insurance
- A willingness to provide a urine specimen
Prospective clients must come to their intake in a state of withdrawal, meaning that they must not have used their drug of choice for a period of 24-48 hours. Exceptions to this rule can be made if clients are being discharged from a detox facility and are interested in maintenance or are transferring to one of our comprehensive treatment centers from another facility. Clients must be bring all documentation with them stating that they were in detox or have their records faxed from their previous treatment provider if they will be transferring.
It is important to note that not all clients are guaranteed receipt of medication on their first day. It is the responsibility of the medical team onsite to determine if same-day medication is appropriate.
If prospective clients are pregnant, they should not be in a state of withdrawal when they come in for their intake. All pregnant clients need to have consent from their treating OB/GYN and must be willing to sign a release of information (ROI) in order for our staff to be able to appropriately coordinate care. If pregnant clients do not have a treating OB/GYN, the staff at our comprehensive treatment centers will work with the prospective client in order to determine appropriate arrangements.
