New Vision™ Medical Stabilization The road to recovery from drug and alcohol abuse is an arduous journey. And withdrawal symptoms can be a particularly difficult obstacle. Medically managing withdrawal symptoms in a hospital setting—also called “medical stabilization” —is an option for those who are concerned about the dangers associated with suddenly stopping the use of alcohol or controlled substances without proper medical support. If you or someone you love could benefit from medical stabilization, please call for more information 800-939-2273 or 954-883-7771, or request information online. Location Memorial Hospital Pembroke 7800 Sheridan Street Pembroke Pines, FL 33024 Memorial Hospital Pembroke, in collaboration with SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation, provides medial stabilization for adults in our community who are currently using or experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Our physicians that care for patients are Suboxone certified. How does it work? New Vision™ medical stabilization is a voluntary service for adults who have used alcohol and/or controlled substances within the previous 72 hours. It begins with a confidential telephone screening, followed by an intake appointment. Each patient undergoes a medical history, complete laboratory work-up and a nursing assessment. Typically, the patient’s hospital stay lasts between 3-5 days. What happens after the hospital stay? Before a patient is discharged from the hospital, a plan is made for the patient’s follow-up care with an appropriate community-based treatment program. Support groups offer education about chemical dependency and ways to prevent relapse. Scheduled admissions are conducted 7 days a week.
