Through a unique inpatient medical stabilization service known as New Vision™, patients at Davis Hospital and Medical Center undergo medically supervised detoxification. A typical inpatient stay lasts three to five days. During the medical stabilization process, withdrawal symptoms are medically supervised by a fully qualified substance abuse treatment team. This team includes a medical doctor and nursing personnel.
New Vision is neither a residential nor an outpatient treatment program. New Vision services are exclusive to three-to-five-day inpatient detoxification and discharge planning. There are no counseling or psychiatric services offered in the New Vision program. Patients with acute psychiatric needs may be admitted to another program. Also, New Vision is not intended for use in pregnant patients.
