February 23, 2022 – Beginning March 1, 2002, Holy Cross Health will offer medical detoxification services to help people overcome withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addiction through the New Vision withdrawal management service.
The New Vision service supports adults with a hospital stay under medical supervision for stabilization, which generally lasts three days. The patient is able to detox from a substance in a safe, medically supervised environment.
“We look forward to being part of the framework for addressing substance use disorders in South Florida,” said Mark Doyle, President and CEO of Holy Cross Health. “We know that the ill effects of drug addiction are felt far and wide. This new service offering will provide a viable option and hope for individuals and families struggling to break free from addiction. »
New Vision at Holy Cross Health will provide treatment for substances, including opioids (heroin, OxyContin, Percocet); alcohol; cocaine; benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax); methamphetamine; and combined substances.
Discharge planning will take place before leaving the hospital; the patient will be referred to appropriate community treatment programs to help prevent relapse and continue treatment.
New Vision accepts self-referred patients: a doctor’s referral is not required for admission. Patients can only be admitted by a licensed doctor and will be admitted five days a week. Holy Cross Health accepts Aetna, AvMed, Florida Blue, Humana, United and more. For a complete list of accepted plans, visit www.holy-cross.com/for-patients/billing-and-insurance.
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 more than 30 hospitals across the United States . SpecialCare has been providing inpatient medical stabilization in conjunction with acute acute care hospitals for nearly 30 years and is a subsidiary of BayMark Health Services.
