At Western Michigan Comprehensive Treatment Center, we strive to make the process of admissions one that is extremely easy to navigate. From the moment you contact our center, you will be fully informed and guided through each step by one of our compassionate staff members. In order to ensure that your admissions experience is successful, it is important to review the following information detailed on this page:
Individuals who wish to receive treatment at Western Michigan Comprehensive Treatment Center must meet our pre-admissions criteria. Prior to contacting our center to schedule an intake assessment, please check to see if you meet the below listed criteria:
- You must be dependent on opioids (heroin or prescription painkillers) for at least 1 year or more
- You must be age 18 or older
It is important for prospective patients to know that an individual is not required to fail a drug screen in order to receive treatment at our center.
If you meet the criteria listed above and contact our center, you will schedule an intake assessment with our staff. On the day of your assessment, you will be required to do the following:
- Provide a valid form of identification: We will gladly accept a Driver’s license, state ID, or passport as proof of identification.
- Pay intake fees: All patients are required to pay for their assessment upfront.
- Report to our center in a state of withdrawal: Unless you are currently pregnant or transferring from a detox program, you will be required to come to your assessment having not used opioids for at least 20 to 24 hours.
- Supply documentation that you completed a detox program: For those who have completed detox, we do require paperwork from that center so we can add that information to your file.
An intake assessment can last anywhere between 4 and 6 hours. We require this period of time so that we can assess your needs as thoroughly as possible. During this appointment, the following will be completed after the intake fee has been paid:
- Admissions paperwork
- Drug screen
- TB test (if you have not received one in the last 2 years)
- Physical (completed by one of our physicians)
- Pregnancy test (for female patients only)
It is important to know that not all patients receive medication on their first day at our center. The decision to administer medication is made on a case-by-case basis by one of our physicians.
If you have questions about our admissions process or would like to schedule an assessment, feel free to contact us at your convenience. At Western Michigan Comprehensive Treatment Center, you can begin your life anew, free from the grips of opioid addiction.
