24/7 Appointment Scheduling

At West Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, our commitment to quality service starts with the admissions process. The criteria and procedures described on this page are necessary to ensure that you receive the care that is best suited to your specific needs. In order to ensure that your admissions experience is as efficient and productive as possible, please carefully review the following information.

First, in order to begin medication assisted treatment at West Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, prospective patients must meet all three of the following requirements:

  • Must be age 18 or older
  • Must have been dependent upon opioids for at least one year
  • Must be in a state of withdrawal for at least 20 to 24 hours (unless pregnant)

Once eligibility for treatment has been confirmed, patients will be scheduled for their intake appointment. This appointment will take between two and four hours. In order to be admitted for treatment, patients must bring the following with them to their intake appointment:

  • Valid photo identification. We accept state-issued ID cards, driver’s licenses, and passports.
  • Proof of insurance, if the patient intends to use insurance benefits to pay for treatment.
  • Payment for intake fees. Even patients with insurance coverage must pay their intake fees during this initial appointment. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, money orders, and credit cards issued in the name of the person who is paying. West Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers do not accept personal checks or payment by phone.
  • Patients transferring to one of our centers from another program must arrange for all relevant records to be delivered or faxed to the location where they will be receiving treatment.

During the intake process, patients will be required to complete the following:

  • Paperwork to confirm eligibility and to document personal history. This documentation will include questions about patients’ treatment history, psychiatric history, medical history, and related issues.
  • A physical examination with one of our physicians. This examination will include a drug test and a TB test. Patients who provide proof of having taken a TB test within the previous two years will not have to take another test during their intake assessment.
  • Female patients will be required to take a pregnancy test.

Pregnant patients must have consent from their OB/GYN to begin treatment, and must sign a release of information form so that we can coordinate care. Pregnant patients who are not seeing an OB/GYN can consult with a West Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Center staff member to get referrals for prenatal care.

Please note this important piece of information regarding medication: Our goal is to provide all prospective patients with the care that they need as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, no patients are guaranteed to receive medication on their first day. Our medical staff will determine the appropriateness of first-day prescription medication administration on a case-by-case basis.
