24/7 Appointment Scheduling

At North Florida Comprehensive Treatment Center, we understand that starting treatment can be an intimidating experience. To help alleviate any worries or fears that our patients may have, we work diligently to ensure that every individual who chooses to heal with us knows exactly what to expect at every stage of the treatment process. This dedication to providing patients with all necessary information begins with the admissions process.

First, in order to receive treatment at North Florida Comprehensive Treatment Center, prospective patients must be at least 18 years old. Most of our patients have been dependent upon opioids for at least one year, but individuals who have been opioid-dependent for less time than this may be admitted for treatment based upon an assessment by our doctor. Also, new patients should arrive for their intake screening in a state of withdrawal, unless they are pregnant.

Patients are expected to bring the following with them to their intake appointment:

  • Valid photo identification – We will accept a driver’s license, a U.S. passport, or a state-issued photo ID card.
  • Any prescription medications that they are currently taking
  • Payment for first day’s medication fee – We will accept cash, a money order, or a credit card that is issued in the payer’s name.
  • Insurance card, if intending to pay for treatment with insurance
  • Pregnant patients must bring proof of pregnancy from their OB/GYN or an emergency room.
  • Pregnant patients who are seeing an OB/GYN must bring written permission from the OB/GYN to begin treatment.

The intake appointment, which will take approximately two to four hours, will consist of the following:

  • Filling out paperwork
  • Completing a physical exam
  • Providing a urine sample for a drug screen
  • Taking a TB test
  • Female clients must also take a pregnancy test.
  • Pregnant clients who are not currently seeing an OB/GYN may consult with a staff member to get referrals for prenatal care.

The decision to provide medication on the day that a patient completes his or her intake appointment will be made by our doctor based on a review of the patient’s case. Our goal is to get all patients into treatment as efficiently as possible, but we cannot guarantee that every person will receive medication on the first day.
