Your admission to Glenwood Life Counseling Center begins with a phone call to the Intake Coordinator at 410-323-9811, extension 224.
If you are seeking Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) treatment or regular counseling treatment without methadone, the Intake Coordinator will guide you further regarding admission to these programs at Glenwood Life Counseling Center.
If you are seeking Medication Assisted Treatment (“MAT”) for opioid addiction (with heroin, oxycodone, morphine, codeine, etc.), the Intake Coordinator will start the admission process with a brief interview.
Please be prepared to provide the following information:
- Have you ever been in a Methadone Maintenance Treatment program before?
- If yes, what was the name and address of the last program and the dates of your treatment?
- Do you currently have insurance? Commercial insurance or Medical Assistance?
- What is the name of your insurance company?
The Intake Coordinator will give you an appointment and will explain the admission process for you. It is our goal to get a new patient admitted within 24 hours of first contact.
When you come for admission you will need:
- Photo Identification and a Social Security Card. If you do not have these forms of identification, bring in some mail with your current address on it. If there are problems with identification, please talk to us. We have a duty to establish that you are who you say you are, but we also have a duty to get you into treatment. We want to eliminate any obstacles in your path to recovery.
On the day of your admission please be prepared to spend 1 ½ hours or more with the Intake Counselor. That may seem like a long time, but addiction treatment is a very serious matter and we cannot treat you if we do not know about you. Also, please be prepared to spend up to an hour with the Nurse Practitioner or Physician. Again, we will be using medication to treat you, and we need to know about your medical history and current medical condition.
We will also be asking you to give us written permission:
- To obtain information from your last addiction treatment program (if any).
- To communicate with your Primary Medical Care Provider (if any).
- To communicate with your Psychiatrist or other mental health provider (if any).
As long as you are clear-headed, we will start treatment with methadone on the same day. If you are intoxicated (from alcohol or any other drug) you will not be able to give informed consent for treatment, therefore, we will not be able to treat you. In addition, if you are intoxicated, it may not be safe to give you methadone.
If you use heroin, or any other opiate such as Oxycodone, Percocet, Oxycontin, Hydrocodone, Codeine, or Morphine, and you cannot stop on your own:
PLEASE CALL 410-323-9811, extension 224.
