New Vision Medical Stabilization Unit
New Vision™, an inpatient medical stabilization service provided and managed by SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation in partnership with Fairfield Medical Center, provides help for individuals within the community who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. Medical stabilization is the process by which withdrawal symptoms are medically managed in a hospital setting.
The service accepts appropriate adults who are currently using or experiencing withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs. It is a voluntary program that begins with a confidential telephone screening, followed by an intake appointment. Each patient will undergo a medical history, physical, complete laboratory workup and a nursing assessment. The diagnosis of need for inpatient admission can only be made by a licensed physician. Once admitted, the patient’s medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization typically lasts between 3-5 days. Before the patient is discharged, a plan is made for his or her follow-up care.
Fairfield Medical Center has a fully qualified treatment team that includes specially trained physicians and nursing personnel who utilize a multi-disciplinary approach in the individualized treatment of each patient. The medical staff at Arbor View Family Medicine in Lancaster serves as the admitting physicians caring for these patients.
New Vision™ accepts most insurance, Medicaid and Medicare plans. If you feel you are in need of this service or you know someone who is, please call 740-689-4457 for a confidential phone screening. The office at FMC is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday by appointment only.
