24/7 Appointment Scheduling

At Spokane Comprehensive Treatment Center, we are committed to ensuring that each patient has the most positive treatment experience when embarking on the road to recovery at our center.

This dedication to quality customer service begins during the admissions process, as we understand that the decision to seek treatment can often cause individuals to feel pangs of anxiety when taking on such an important endeavor. Our helpful and compassionate admissions team is available to answer any questions that you or your loved one may have about our top-notch medication assisted treatment, and we are happy to walk you or someone you care about through the process of beginning treatment.

While we are just a phone call away, it is important for prospective patients to know that we do have pre-admissions criteria that must be met in order to proceed to the next step of our admissions process. This criteria includes the following:

  • You must be aged 18 or older.
  • You must be opioid dependent for one year or more.

Once we have confirmed that you meet the above criteria, an intake assessment can be scheduled. As soon as a date and time is determined, our staff will inform you of the following pertinent information, which you will need to prepare for your assessment:

  • You will need to set aside 2 to 4 hours to complete your intake assessment.
  • You must show proof of identification in the form of a driver’s license, state ID, or passport.
  • You must be in a state of withdrawal (20 to 24 hours without use of opioids), unless you are pregnant.
  • You must provide documentation of prior detox or medication assisted treatment if you have been in another program.

On the day of your intake, you will be greeted by one of our staff members who will ask you for your identification and intake fee, and who will then provide you with paperwork to complete. Once this part of the admissions process is complete, you will then be required to do the following:

  • Complete a drug test.
  • Complete a TB test, unless you can show proof of having had one in the last 2 years.
  • Female patients are required to take a pregnancy test.
  • Complete a physical with one of our physicians.

Finally, please note the following essential information:

  • Pregnant patients will be required to sign a release of information for us to coordinate care with their OB/GYNs. If a pregnant patient is not currently receiving prenatal care, our staff can provide referrals for prenatal services.
  • Patients are not guaranteed to receive medication on the first day of treatment. If one of our physicians feels that that is necessary to start medication on the first day, that decision is made based on the patient’s individual needs and on a case-by-case basis only.

If you or your loved one has questions about Spokane Comprehensive Treatment Center’s admissions process, feel free to contact us at your convenience. We are happy to assist you in whatever manner possible. We want to help you as you take steps towards a bright, drug-free future.
