Chemical Dependency: New Vision Medical Stabilization Service
In partnership with New Vision™, Research Medical Center is providing a comprehensive medical stabilization service for adults with alcohol, drug and related health issues.
The service accepts adults who are currently using or are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs such as alcohol, heroin, prescription and other addictive substances. Patients are treated with a medically supervised hospital stay that typically lasts three days and includes the following aspects:
- Crisis intervention
- Medical management
New Vision™ has a fully qualified treatment team including a medical director and nursing personnel who take a multidisciplinary, team approach to stabilize the patient.
Upon admission to Research Medical Center, our skilled staff completes assessments of the patient’s fundamental needs. This assessment usually includes obtaining a medical history, completing a physical and processing a complete laboratory workup.
Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances and are considered medically unstable will be closely observed and stabilized. Research Medical Center accepts patients who are unable to function because of substance use or abuse, or who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from stopping the use of certain substances along with other related health issues.
