24/7 Appointment Scheduling

At Racine Comprehensive Treatment Center, we put our patients first. From the moment a person contacts our center to inquire about the treatment options we offer, he or she is welcomed with compassion and understanding for what it takes to defeat an addiction to opioids. We recognize the bravery it takes to seek treatment to overcome an addiction to heroin or prescription painkillers, and we put forth every effort to ensure that every facet of our care is a successful experience for our patients.

When an individual contacts our center to learn about how he or she can begin medication assisted treatment, that person will be informed of the following pre-admissions criteria, which must be met in order to partake in our services:

  • Must be age 18 or older
  • Must be dependent upon opioids for at least 1 year
  • Must reside within 50 miles of our center
  • Must not have an active prescription for opioid pain medications

If you or your loved one fits this patient profile, then you or the person you care about can move on to the next phase of our admissions process.

While you are speaking with our staff during that first phone call, you can schedule an appointment on a day and at a time that is convenient for you to complete the following:

  • A complete physical with one of our staff physicians
  • A drug screening
  • A TB test (if one has not been completed in the past year)
  • All necessary admissions paperwork, including releases of information if a prospective patient is currently being treated by another provider

The admissions assessment can take at least two hours to complete, so please plan accordingly when scheduling your appointment. Furthermore, please note that the following is required on the day of that assessment:

  • Two valid forms of identification that include a photo of the prospective patient (this can be a state-issued ID card, Driver’s license, or passport) and show proof of residency
  • Full fee for the intake
  • Insurance card (if the patient intends to use insurance to pay for treatment)
  • All current prescriptions
  • Approval for treatment if pregnant

Finally, it is important that prospective patients are aware of the fact that they may not receive medication on their very first day at our center. This decision is made by our medical team and is handled on a case-by-case basis.

To learn more about the process of admissions at Racine Comprehensive Treatment Center, or to learn more about the care we provide, feel free to give us a call. Our caring staff is on hand to answer any and all questions that you or your loved one may have.
