Inpatient Medical Stabilization Available at DMC
Approximately one year ago Dale Medical Center entered into a partnership with a medical stabilization service, providing patients a path to recovery.
New Vision, a service for adults with drug, alcohol and other related health issues, is available at Dale Medical Center. The service accepts adults who experience addiction and intoxication, or who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs or alcohol.
The program consists of a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization, which typically lasts three to five days. The inpatient stay includes crisis intervention, assessment, pre-screening, admission, stabilization and appropriate discharge planning, according to Dale Medical Center.
"Dale Medical Center's medical stabilization program is an important service to offer to our community." Vernon Johnson, CEO said. "We believe our partnership with New Vision will help people take the first step toward breaking the addiction cycle."
New Vision has a fully qualified treatment team which includes a medical director and nursing personnel who utilize a multidisciplinary team approach in the individualized treatment of each patient. It is a medical stabilization service for people with drug, alcohol and health-related issues.
New Vision is a service operated through a contract between Dale Medical Center and SpecialCare Hospital Management Corp. of St. Louis and accepts appropriate patients who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms. It is a voluntary service that individually treats patients who are experiencing alcohol and drug withdrawal.
The service accepts Medicaid, Medicare insurance and most commercial insurance.
