The use of alcohol and/or other substances can disrupt a person’s life in many ways. Loss of job, breakup of marriages and families, loss of self-esteem, and even loss of life can result from the continued abuse of substances without proper treatment. However, with stabilization, and an ongoing desire to remain free of the burden of substance use, many individuals can resume and maintain healthy lifestyles. To assist individuals who are suffering in this situation, Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital offers the New VisionTM service.
New VisionTM medical stabilization service at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital is specifically designed to help people with drug, alcohol and health related issues. New VisionTM accepts appropriate patients who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms. Most insurance plans are accepted for the cost of the service.
The service begins with a medically supervised hospital stay for the inpatient treatment phase, which typically lasts 3-5 days. Upon admission, initial assessments of the patient’s fundamental needs are accomplished. These assessments include a medical history, physical, a complete laboratory workup, and a nursing assessment.
Discharge planning will occur prior to leaving the hospital; the patient will be referred to appropriate community based treatment programs. The goal of these support groups is to blend education for all patients regarding chemical dependency with practical methodologies to prevent relapse.
The Service has qualified hospital personnel, which includes a trained Medical Director/Attending Physician and experienced nursing staff. By utilizing their training and experience, the staff will ensure that each person receives the attention necessary for safe medical stabilization in the hospital setting.
Over the years, New VisionTM has treated thousands of patients nationally, one at a time. After the inpatient phase, each patient is referred to an appropriate outpatient service or rehab for further treatment as deemed necessary.
The past is yesterday and cannot be changed. If you or a family member needs help, please consider this service. Let today be the first day of your commitment to a New VisionTM which offers hope for your future. Help is only a phone call away. Substance Abuse and Dependency does not have to be a way of life.
