Withdrawal Treatment

Break through the cycle of addiction.

Drug and alcohol addiction is a significant burden for individuals and families alike, as well as for society as a whole. Unfortunately, far too many people are hesitant to go to the hospital for help because they fear the symptoms of withdrawal during detoxification. Additionally, abruptly ceasing alcohol or drug use can be dangerous.

What to Expect

Upon admission to the hospital for medical stabilization, assessment of the patient’s fundamental needs are conducted. These assessments include a medical history, physical, a complete laboratory workup and a nursing assessment. This pre-screening process will enable the patient to be admitted alongside a personalized plan for treatment.

Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances, and are considered medically unstable, will be closely observed and stabilized. New Vision™ accepts patients who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms from cessation of use of certain substances, in conjunction with other related health issues.

The diagnosis of need for inpatient admission can only be made by a licensed physician.  The service accepts most insurance plans.

SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation administers New Vision™ for the hospital, and has a financial interest in this service.
