24/7 Appointment Scheduling

The process of beginning services at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers is explicitly made as streamlined as possible in order to jumpstart our patients’ recovery journey.

Before beginning medication-assisted treatment at one of our centers, we will confirm the following criteria, of which must be met in order to receive treatment with us:

  • Must be aged 18 or older (we do not discriminate based on gender; both men and women are welcome at our centers)
  • Must be opioid dependent for at least 1 year
  • Must be in a state of withdrawal for at least 20 to 24 hours unless discharged from another program after receiving detox services

Once this criteria is confirmed by you, the prospective patient, we then inform you of what you will need to be prepared for in order to proceed to the next phase of the admissions process:

  • Must possess and show proof of a valid ID, of which can include a state ID, driver’s license, or passport
  • Must be willing to provide a urine specimen at time of intake
  • Must be prepared to provide payment for the intake, regardless of desire to pay for treatment with insurance
  • Pregnant patients are prohibited from showing up for their scheduled intake in a state of withdrawal

After discussing the above information with you, our admissions staff will then schedule your intake. Prospective patients are strongly encouraged to set aside at least 2 to 4 hours to complete an intake. Within this time frame, the following will be required of each potential patient seeking our services:

  • Submit payment for intake at time of intake
  • Complete any and all necessary paperwork that will inquire about personal history, treatment history, psychiatric history, and medical history
  • Provide information regarding other medications that are currently being taken
  • Provide documentation if transferring from another treatment provider
  • Complete a physical with one of our physicians
  • Complete a drug screen
  • Receive a TB test, if you have not received one in the past 2 years
  • Female patients are required to take a pregnancy test
  • Pregnant patients must have consent from their OB/GYN to receive medication-assisted treatment (If the patient does not have an OB/GYN, our staff can discuss referrals for prenatal medical care.)

It is important to note that upon completion of your intake, it is not guaranteed that you will receive medication on the first day of services. The decision to prescribe medication on day 1 is decided by our medical staff, who will make this determination on a case-by-case basis.

Should you have further questions regarding the admissions and intake process at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, feel free to contact our admissions staff who will gladly help you as you embark on a life free from an opioid addiction.
