What to Know and Expect

Accessing treatment services at Prairie Center generally begins with what’s known as an intake assessment or a screening. This assessment helps us determine what type of help you need and if accepted for treatment, it will help our team design a custom treatment plan for you to consider all variables impacting your addiction.

The assessment process often begins with a short screen, or pre-assessment, to help us understand your financial situation and outline certain demographics for our files (name, address, etc.)

The next step is a full assessment which can be done at Prairie Center’s Urbana or Danville location. In this screening, you’ll be asked a lot of questions covering things like:

  • Drug use, criminal, and medical history
  • Mental health issues, emotional concerns, and life stressors
  • Substance use triggers and readiness to change
  • Relapse potential and support systems

The assessment process is completely confidential and takes about two hours.

What to bring to your assessment:

  • Medicaid card or MCO insurance card
  • Private medical insurance card (of all working dependents in household)  
  • Recent paystub (of all working dependents in household) and $5.00
  • If you have no insurance and no job: Bring a recent copy of your FICA report and $5.00
  • List of all prescribed medications
