Admission to Oxford Treatment Center can be initiated by the patient, a family member or a referring provider. We assess patients either by phone or in person to determine whether they are appropriate and eligible for our residential or outpatient programs.
When you call Oxford Treatment Center, our admissions team will be listening with one goal in mind: Removing any and all barriers that stand between you and the help you need.
Our team is available 24/7. When you call, we are there to listen to your concerns, and to provide empathy and professionalism as we help you navigate the challenges you face. We take seriously the task of answering your questions and providing the information you need.
To begin the admission process, you’ll need to have your insurance card ready. We will ask you for your name, date of birth, Social Security number and address. If you are insured through a family member, you will also need to provide us with that person’s full name, date of birth, Social Security number and place of employment.
Once we have your information in hand, we will check your insurance benefits and call you back as soon as we have that information for you. You may also verify your benefits immediately by entering your information here.
While not Medicaid-eligible, Oxford Treatment Center accepts most commercial insurance. Oftentimes, insurance covers a portion of the treatment cost. Our staff intercedes with your insurance provider on your behalf, navigating through the terms of your policy to ensure you get the greatest benefit from the coverage it provides.
For patients entering our residential program, we will work with you to determine your admission date and time and prepare for your arrival. Oxford Treatment Center can arrange transportation, or patients can be brought to our campus by a family member or significant other.
