Rainbow Recovery Center requires a complete medical profile once you’ve finished the screening and intake procedures. This profile includes the following areas from you: medical history, physical examination, a urine sample, and an RPR test for Syphilis. Our medical staff will also explain about what methadone is, how it works, and answer any questions that you have about methadone. A referral will be provided for HIV testing at your request. If you are a pregnant woman seeking treatment with us you will be provided with referrals for prenatal care immediately and strongly encouraged to follow through. The medical staff will want to meet with you more frequently to monitor your progress and ensure stabilization on methadone.
