Health First's Cape Canaveral Hospital Adds New Vision Medical Stabilization Service for Patients Battling Addiction
Cape Canaveral, FL (February 12, 2018) - Health First's Cape Canaveral Hospital is now offering New Vision medical stabilization services to help people overcome withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addictions.
"Across the nation, substance addiction impacts millions of people and their families. The good news is there is hope - addiction can be successfully treated," said Aaron Robinson, CEO of Health First's Community Hospitals. "Health First is dedicated to helping people in our community deal with issues that impact their health and wellness. This new program is just one more avenue where we can provide assistance."
New Vision serves adults through a medically supervised, inpatient hospital stay for stabilization. The stay, which usually spans three days, will include prescreening, an assessment, admission, medical stabilization and discharge planning. Upon admission, patients will undergo an evaluation of their 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 healing.
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 offered in many hospitals across the United States, is provided through a partnership with SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation of St. Charles, Missouri. SpecialCare has been providing inpatient medical stabilization in collaboration with short-term acute care hospitals for more than 25 years. More information can be found at Specialcarecorp.com
