Help for Addiction Withdrawal
New Vision at Genesis Hospital
ZANESVILLE, OH (Sept. 25, 2017) – Genesis HealthCare System has partnered with one of the leading substance withdrawal and medical stabilization and management organizations in the United States. New Vision™ and Genesis began discussions in January 2017 and will begin offering this much-needed service to our community Tuesday, Sept. 26. New Vision at Genesis Hospital will offer medical stabilization services to help people overcome withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addictions.
“We’re looking forward to providing this much-needed service for those in our community needing help managing substance withdrawal,” said Abby Nguyen, chief nursing officer, Genesis HealthCare System. “Genesis is one of the few hospitals in the area offering this inpatient care, and we’re pleased to bring this to the community in an effort to help break the cycle of addiction.”
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 a nursing assessment. Most insurance plans are accepted.
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. For information about New Vision at Genesis Hospital, call (740) 454-5680.
New Vision™, a hospital-based medical stabilization and withdrawal management service, is provided through a partnership with SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation of St. Charles, Missouri, and is currently offered in many hospitals across the United States. SpecialCare 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.
