Jefferson Health adds service for patients fighting addiction
NJBIZ - 5/24/2019
Jefferson Stratford Hospital in Voorhees announced on Monday it is offering 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.
In a statement, Jefferson Health said that the inpatient stay includes pre-screening, assessment, admission, medical stabilization and discharge planning. Discharge planning occurs 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, will be admitted five days a week and most insurances are accepted.
New Vision, a hospital-based medical stabilization and withdrawal management service, is provided through a partnership with SpecialCare Hospital Management of St. Charles, Mo., and is currently offered in nearly 50 hospitals across the U.S. SpecialCare has been providing inpatient medical stabilization in collaboration with short-term acute care hospitals for more 26 years.
