At Calais Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), our commitment to quality service begins with the admissions and intake process. The criteria and procedures described on this page are necessary to make sure that you receive the care that is best suited to your specific needs. In order to ensure that your admissions experience is as efficient and productive as possible, please carefully review the following information.
To be treated at Calais CTC, you must meet the following three criteria:
- Age 18 or older
- Live within 50 miles of our treatment center
- Dependent on opioids for at least one year
If you meet these criteria, we will schedule your intake assessment. You must bring the following with you to your appointment:
- Valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID card, or passport)
- Payment for intake fee (If you are paying for your treatment with Maine Medicaid, Amerigroup, Sunflower, or United Healthcare insurance, you will not be responsible for this fee. You may call us to discuss payments options.)
- Documentation of previous treatment if you are transferring directly from another program
Important Note: Unless you are pregnant, you must arrive at your intake appointment in a state of withdrawal, not having used opioids for 24 hours.
You can expect the following to take place during your intake appointment:
- Complete a biopsychosocial assessment with a qualified counselor
- Receive a physical examination from one of our doctors
- Provide a urine sample for a drug screen
- Take a TB test, unless you have proof of having taken a TB test within the past two years
Females will be required to take a pregnancy test. Patients who are pregnant must sign a release of information form so that we can coordinate care with their OB-GYN. If a patient is not currently seeing an OB-GYN, one of our staff members can consult with them to provide referrals for prenatal care.
Please note that Calais CTC cannot guarantee that anyone will receive medication on their first day. All medication decisions are made on a case-by-case basis by a member of our medical staff.
If you have any questions or would like additional information about any aspect of care at Calais Comprehensive Treatment Center, please contact us at your convenience. We look forward to speaking with you and assisting you in any way we can.
