24/7 Appointment Scheduling

Making the decision to seek treatment for a heroin or prescription painkiller addiction is brave step. It takes courage to finally determine that one’s life should no longer be governed by a chemical dependency problem. Yet once this decision has been made, many individuals may not know how the process of starting treatment begins or understand the steps that must be taken to initiate the care that they need. At Allied Health Services Medford, we take the mystery and worry out of the process of initiating treatment through our streamlined admissions process.

Our team of admissions staff is only a phone call away from helping you or your loved one start on the path toward a recovered life. However, before you make that call, our center has certain pre-admissions criteria that must be met by all patients before scheduling an intake assessment. This criteria includes the following:

  • You must be aged 18 or older.
  • You must be opioid dependent for at least one year.
  • If the prospective patient is on probation or parole, he or she must get consent for permission to admit for treatment from his or her probation or parole officer.

If you or your loved one meets the above criteria, contact our center to set a date and time to complete an intake assessment. This assessment can last between 3 and 4 hours, so prospective patients should plan accordingly. Additionally, once your intake date has been determined, you should be aware of the following in order to be fully prepared upon arrival at out center on that day:

  • You must bring valid proof of identification. We will accept a Driver’s license, state ID, or passport.
  • You must bring proof of insurance if you are intending to use insurance to pay for treatment.
  • You must bring your intake fee.
  • You must arrive in a state of withdrawal, with 20 to 24 hours having passed since your last use, unless you are transferring from a detox program or are currently pregnant.
  • You must bring documentation of prior treatment if you received detox or medication assisted treatment elsewhere.

When you report to our center on the day of your intake assessment, you will work with our staff to complete the following:

  • Physical examination with one of our doctors
  • Drug test via a urine specimen
  • TB test (unless you have received one in the past 2 years)
  • Pregnancy test (female patients only)
  • Release of information form to your OB/GYN (if you are pregnant and receiving prenatal care)
  • Release of information form from your physician if other non-opioid medications are currently prescribed

Pregnant patients who are not currently receiving prenatal care will be provided with referrals for OB/GYNs. Additionally, patients are not always given medication on their first day of treatment. The decision to prescribe and administer any medication on the first day is made on a case-by-case basis by one of our staff physicians.

At Allied Health Services Medford, we have structured our admissions process and provide prospective patients with admissions information in such a way that it is simple to start treatment with us. Should you or your loved one have any questions regarding this process, or to determine if our center is the perfect place to begin the journey towards a recovered life, give us a call today.
