Seeking Treatment

Congratulations on deciding to take the first step towards recovery.

Here at Morse Clinic, our focus is on easing you through the recovery process. Our highly trained and compassionate doctors and staff will develop a results-based, individualized treatment plan based on your addiction history and specific needs. 

Visits at Morse Clinic are by appointment only. To be admitted to an Opioid Treatment Program, you must be at least 18 years old and have been struggling with addiction to opioids for at least one year. Before beginning treatment at one of our outpatient facilities, you must complete our Intake Process.

The Intake Process

The intake process is a clinical assessment that determines whether you are a good candidate for Medication Assisted Treatment at Morse Clinics. A team of trained, qualified technicians, including a counselor, nurse and physician will gather health information and any related history with past and present drug use.

Along with this assessment, patients will have their vital signs measured by a nurse and be evaluated by a physician. The entire process can take from two to four hours.

Clients who transfer into the program will need to go through the same admission procedures as new admissions. Any take-home privileges given at a previous program will be verified and documentation obtained must meet program guidelines for approval by the Medical Director.

Contact the Morse Clinics location closest to you to schedule your intake appointment.

For intake, you must have the following items with you

Valid photo ID

Insurance card

List of medications you are taking

Intake and treatment fees, if applicable

Does insurance cover any portion of my treatment?

Our Medicaid patients have no copayment. Treatment services are billed directly to Medicaid as an in network provider. All Clinics are in network with the new PHP plans in their area. Traditional Medicare (Palmetto) patients should not have a co-pay and coverage must be verified. If you have another form of insurance, you will need to pay our fees and request documentation for you to be able to file out of network and be reimbursed directly by your insurance company. All requirements for proper filing of out of network reimbursement are the responsibility of the patient and the clinic can not file on your behalf..

Can I work while on methadone and also take drug screens?

If you are using opioids or other substances, a positive result will be detected on a drug screen. Methadone alone will not create a positive result on a drug screen. 

How long does it take to dose?

Typically, after the intake day, just a few minutes. We have multiple dosing windows and work very hard to have little to no line.

How do I get started?

To schedule intake, call us today. Please bring a valid photo ID, insurance card, list of medications you are taking, and intake and treatment fees to your intake appointment. 

Does Medicaid cover any portion of my treatment?

Morse Clinic is in network with Medicaid MCOs - Cardinal Innovations, Alliance, Eastpointe, and Sandhills.  Patients are fully covered for services. Earned take home doses will be $10 for Methadone and $15 for Buprenorphine for Medicaid patients. 

Can I transfer from a different clinic?

Yes! In order to transfer to Morse Clinic, you or your current clinic must provide documentation for the following in advance: copy of UDS for the past 6 months, dosing record, and discharge/transfer paperwork. These documents must be reviewed by the intake team before you can begin dosing at Morse Clinic. 

What do I do if I need to leave town?

If you are going to be out of town and unable to attend the clinic for medication, you must inform your counselor as soon as you are aware of the situation. Your counselor will make every effort to arrange dosing at a clinic where you will be. 

You will need to complete a Guest Dose Packet for approval by the Treatment Team. You will also be responsible for a $25 guest-dose set-up fee and all dosing fees at the other clinic. 

What do I do if I lose my take-homes?

Morse Clinics will not replace lost, stolen, broken, or spilled take-home bottles. You are responsible for the safety and security of your take-home bottles once you leave the medication window. 

Stolen bottles should be reported to the police first. Provide documentation (police report) to Morse Clinics for replacement doses.
