Welcome to Medication-Assisted Treatment!

Welcome to Medication-Assisted Treatment!

Recovery Centers of America offers many options for SUD treatment, including our free-standing MAT clinics in Trenton and Somerdale, New Jersey and Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. You probably have a lot of questions on how this process works. Here’s some helpful information to help you get ready as you start this journey.

What time should I be there?

As a new patient, please arrive at your scheduled time to ensure you will be seen by a physician and likely receive your first dose. The admissions process can take up to four hours. New patients will not be seen after 7:30 AM. During this appointment, an intake will be completed, and your level of care will be determined. Our nursing staff will complete a urine drug screen and bloodwork, and the physician will perform a history and physical, which includes a TB and Serology test. One you’ve been assessed by the physician, the physician will determine your dosage and you will be assigned a counselor.

What if I don’t have insurance?

Self-pay is an option a lot of patients take advantage of in order to get the help they need. Self-pay is:

  • Methadone: $95 per week, with a one-time admission fee of $100
  • Suboxone: $200 per week, with a one-time admission fee of $200

These totals include daily dosing, individual counseling, and group counseling. Cash and credit cards are accepted, but checks are not. If you are using someone else’s credit card, that person must be present.

Please note: If you start later in the week, your rate will be prorated.

What should I bring with me?

Please bring the following items with you to your first appointment:

  • Your insurance card
  • 2 forms of ID (1 must have a photo and be state or federal issued)
  • Proof of address

A urine test will be required, so please arrive with a full bladder.

What if I drink or use drugs beforehand?

Impaired patients will not be able to be seen and given their medication. Please do not use or drink 12 hours before coming in for best results.

What can I expect the first week?

In your first week of our MAT program, an individualized course of treatment is determined with your treatment team. Your physician will assess you and determine your initial dose. You will be assigned a counselor, who will assist you in making your treatment program successful.

I’m pregnant. Can I still receive MAT?

Yes, RCA facilities treat pregnant patients. We do not need any additional documentation at the initial assessment. Our physician and team will coordinate with you to get additional information on your pregnancy.

When will I be allowed to get take-homes?

Once you have had 90 days of consecutive negative drug screens, your treatment team will use an 8-point criteria system to determine if you are eligible for take-homes. Because our New Jersey facilities are closed on Sundays, Trenton Healthcare and Bravo Medical patients will be offered take-homes on Saturdays for Sundays. However, our Delaware County Healthcare Clinic is open 7 days a week.

Can I dose at 2 facilities at once?

Due to state law, you are not able to dose at two clinics at once – we are required to check for dual enrollment and current prescriptions. If we find any of these, we will work with you to transfer enrollment from the other clinic to ours and work with the prescribing physician in regards to any medication prescribed that would prevent you from admitting with us.

Can I detox at your facility?

Yes. We can do a 30, 60, or 90-day detoxification program.

What are the dispensing hours?

As a new patient, you will need to arrive for your first appointment as scheduled. After that, dispensing hours:
