Making the decision to get help with an opioid dependence problem is a courageous step toward a much brighter future. From all of us at Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers, please know that we respect the effort that you are making, and we are honored that you are considering our program to help you start your new drug-free life.
From the moment you contact Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers to inquire about receiving treatment at one of our two centers, our goal is to provide you with a superior customer service experience and guide you through a smooth and efficient intake process. To ensure that that you are able to start receiving treatment as quickly as possible, please carefully review all of the information on this page.
First, to be treated at one of our centers, you must be 18 years of age or older, and you must have been opioid dependent for at least 12 months.
If you meet these eligibility requirements, we will schedule your intake appointment. At the outset of this appointment, you will be required to provide the following:
- Valid photo identification (Driver’s license, state ID card, or passport)
- Payment for intake fee (cash, money order, or a major credit card issued in the name of the payer); we are not able to accept personal checks or payment by phone
- Proof of insurance, if you are planning to use insurance to pay for your treatment
- If you are transferring directly from detox or from another medication assisted treatment program, you will need to provide all necessary documentation from your prior program.
Important Note: Unless you are pregnant, you must arrive for your intake appointment in a state of withdrawal, without having used any opiates within the previous 20 to 24 hours. If you are pregnant, you should not be in withdrawal when you arrive for your intake appointment
Please plan to be at the center for about four hours for your intake appointment. During that time, the following will occur:
- You will be given educational information and provided with a copy of our Patient Handbook.
- You will meet with a staff member for intake paperwork and assessments and have your picture taken for internal identification purposes.
- You will be asked to sign Releases of Confidential Information forms so that we may coordinate care with your primary care physician and other relevant healthcare providers.
- You will provide an Oral Drug Screen to assess opioid and other drug use.
- You will be seen by a clinician to complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment.
- You will be scheduled for blood work and TB testing.
- You will be scheduled to meet with a member of our medical staff for a physical exam.
- If you are female, you will be given a pregnancy test.
Your first dose of medication generally occurs the same day that you are approved for admission into our program, however, we cannot guarantee that this will occur. All medication decisions are determined on a case-by-case basis following an assessment by our medical director.
