New Vision™ Medical Stabilization at Sunrise Hospital
Alcohol and drug abuse are common problems in both the youth and adult populations of the United States and can pose a variety of health hazards. In addition to increasing a person’s risk for health issues, such as liver disease, substance abuse can also increase the likelihood of HIV infection, injury, or other medical conditions. At Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center, we understand the challenges associated with substance abuse and have introduced a state-of-the-art inpatient option for men and women struggling with drug or alcohol-related illnesses.
New Vision™ Medical Stabilization is staffed by a specially-trained medical and support team dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of substance abuse-related health issues. For adults who are currently struggling with addiction or who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms , this inpatient service can provide the encouragement and medical treatment needed to regain control of their health.
The typical New Vision™ stay involves the following steps:
- Pre-screening , in which the patient’s physical and emotional needs are determined
- Assessment , including a full medical history, physical and laboratory workup, and nursing assessment
- Admission into the program by a licensed physician
- Medical stabilization overseen by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, lasting approximately three days in the hospital
- Appropriate discharge planning to provide the patient with a long-term plan for improved physical and mental health
During the medical stabilization process, each patient will be closely monitored and cared for by the Sunrise Hospital New Vision™ team. It is our goal to help our patients regain their optimal state of health and refrain from harmful substance use or abuse.
