New Admissions Center Responding to Wisconsin's Opioid Crisis Now Available for Patients Seeking Treatment

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - May 20, 2016) -  Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers is pleased to announce the opening of its new regional admissions center to connect patients to their nearest provider throughout Wisconsin. This is the first call center that has been designed to confront the opiate epidemic that has plagued the entire state of Wisconsin. Those who require the treatment provided by Wisconsin's Comprehensive Treatment Centers will now be able to contact one admissions center, where all questions can be answered and appointments scheduled within Wisconsin's largest network of opiate addiction treatment clinics.

Due to the surge in the abuse of heroin and other opioids, it is imperative that individuals have easy access to receiving treatment for their addiction. Without having a simple, straightforward means of finding appropriate treatment options, many individuals who are suffering from opioid addictions may neglect to seek care at all.

"Heroin and prescription painkiller addictions have reached epidemic proportions. Without proper interventions, these drugs will continue to destroy lives," said John Peloquin, Division President for Acadia Healthcare. "By having access to our new regional admissions center, people who are battling these addictions have an easy way to find the help they need. The RAC offers individuals one call, one solution, one network of treatment providers."

With the opening of this regional admissions center, prospective patients or referral sources benefit from only having to make one phone call. This streamlined approach will allow more people who are in crisis to receive the care they need in a timely manner by connecting prospective patients with a number of treatment centers as opposed to having to seek out options for care one-by-one. It allows prospective patients or referents to make one call, receive one solution, and have an appointment scheduled within 24 hours for their nearest treatment center.
