At Temecula Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center, we applaud those who make the brave decision to put an end to their addictions to heroin and/or prescription pain medications. We understand that the choice to seek treatment is one that is frequently rife with concern and worry, as many individuals are often worried about what the future will hold once they are no longer bound by the grips of addiction. For this reason, we, at Temecula Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center, are dedicated to making the process of starting treatment one that is both worry- and trouble-free.
Before you contact our center to schedule an admissions assessment, it is important to be aware of our pre-admissions criteria. If you are aged 18 or older and have been opioid dependent for at least one year, then you meet our pre-admissions criteria and can partake in the life-changing care we offer.
Our admissions staff is ready, willing, and able to speak with you or your loved one about our high quality treatment and can schedule an assessment on a day and at a time that is convenient for you or the person you care about. After scheduling your assessment, you will be informed of the following important details pertaining to our admissions process:
- A valid form of identification must be shown on the day of your assessment. We will accept a Driver’s license, state ID, or passport.
- If you intend on using insurance to pay for treatment, you must bring proof of your insurance.
- You must report to your admissions assessment in a state of withdrawal, at least 20 to 24 hours since your last use of an opioid(s).
Prospective patients who are currently pregnant are advised not to be in a state of withdrawal when they come to our center to complete an intake. Additionally, if you or your loved one has received prior detox services or medication assisted treatment, documentation from any prior treatment center will need to be faxed or brought to our center before beginning services.
Furthermore, you or your loved one will need to allow 2 to 4 hours to complete an assessment at our center, during which time the following will occur:
- Fill out all necessary paperwork.
- Complete a drug test.
- Complete a physical.
- Take a TB test if you have not had one within the last 2 years.
- If you are a woman, you will be required to take a pregnancy test.
- Sign a release of information if it is deemed necessary.
- Sign a consent to get permission to admit if you are currently on probation or parole.
Patients who are currently pregnant will be required to sign a release of information for our staff to speak with their prenatal care providers. If a pregnant patient is not currently receiving prenatal care, we can provide referrals for such.
Lastly, it is important to know that not every patient will receive medication on the first day of treatment at Temecula Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center. The decision to prescribe and administer medication is made by one of our staff physicians who will evaluate such a need on a case-by-case basis.
In choosing Temecula Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center to embark on the road to a recovered life, you or someone you care about will find that our admissions process is extremely easy to navigate. Once complete, treatment begins and you or your loved one is but one step closer to the opioid-free life that has enabled countless men and women to have bright and healthy futures.
