24/7 Appointment Scheduling

At Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center, we understand the courage it can take to finally get help for opiate dependence, and we appreciate the strength and determination of every person who makes the life-affirming decision to enroll in our program.

Our effort to provide you with the best possible support begins the first time you contact us, and extends throughout your entire time in treatment. Starting with the intake process, our goal is to provide you with an efficient and worry-free experience.

To ensure that you are able to start treatment as quickly as possible, please review the information on this page prior to arriving for intake.

First, please make sure that you are eligible for treatment at Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center. In order to receive care, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be age 18 or older.
  • You must have been opioid dependent for at least one year.

If you meet these criteria, your next step is to contact our center to make an intake appointment. To ensure that you are prepared for this appointment, please note the following:

  • Your intake will take two to four hours. Please set aside ample time to ensure that you are able to complete this process.
  • You must provide valid identification in order to begin the intake process. We will accept a state-issued identification card, a Driver’s license, or a U.S. passport.
  • If you intend to use insurance to pay for treatment, you must bring your insurance card and any other applicable insurance documentation to your intake appointment.
  • You must be prepared to pay your intake fee during this initial appointment. Even patients who will use insurance to pay for treatment must pay the intake fee on their first day.
  • Unless you are pregnant or transferring from another program, you must arrive to your intake appointment in a state of withdrawal, with 20 to 24 hours having passed since your last use. (Note: This does not apply to pregnant women.)
  • If you are transferring from another program, you must provide all necessary documentation from your previous program.

The following will occur during your intake appointment:

  • You will complete paperwork and answer questions related to your personal, medical, and treatment history.
  • You will complete a physical exam with one of our medical doctors.
  • You will provide a urine specimen for drug screening.
  • You will take a TB test, unless you can provide proof of having taken a TB test within the previous 24 months.
  • If you are female, you will take a pregnancy test.
  • If you are pregnant, you will sign a release of information form that will allow us to coordinate care with your OB/GYN.
  • If you are pregnant but not currently seeing an OB/GYN, you may consult with one of our staff members to get a referral for prenatal care.

Please note that, although our goal is to get you into treatment as quickly as possible, we cannot guarantee that you will receive medication on your first day. All medication decisions are made on case-by-case bases by one of our staff physicians.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center at your convenience. We look forward to providing you with the information you need and helping you take your first steps on the path towards lifelong recovery.
