Crisp Regional adds New Vision Medical Stabilization Service for patients battling addiction

Crisp Regional Hospital

CORDELE – Crisp Regional is now offering medical stabilization services to help people overcome withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addictions through New Vision™ medical stabilization service.

The New Vision™ service serves adults with a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization, which usually lasts three days. The inpatient stay will include prescreening, assessment, admission, medical stabilization and discharge planning. Upon admission, an assessment will be completed with an evaluation of the patient’s medical history, a physical, a laboratory workup and nursing assessment.

Discharge planning will occur prior to leaving the hospital; the patient will be referred to appropriate community-based treatment programs to help prevent relapse and continue their treatment.

Patients can only be admitted by a licensed physician, and will be admitted five days a week.

New Vision™, a hospital-based medical stabilization and withdrawal management service, is provided through a partnership with SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation of St. Charles, MO, and is currently offered in many hospitals across the United States. Special

Care has been providing inpatient medical stabilization in collaboration with short-term acute care hospitals for over 25 years. More information can be found at www.specialcarecorp.com.

For more information about the New Vision™ medical stabilization service please contact New Vision at Crisp Regional Monday through Friday at 229.276.3580 .
