New Vision™ Medical Stabilization Services
Drug and alcohol addiction is a significant burden for individuals and families alike, as well as for society as a whole. Unfortunately, far too many people are hesitant to go to the hospital for help because they fear the symptoms of withdrawal during detoxification. Additionally, abruptly ceasing alcohol or drug use can be dangerous.
New Vision™ at Jefferson Health in New Jersey offers an inpatient medical stabilization service for adults with drug, alcohol or related health issues.
The program accepts appropriate adults, who are in active or impending withdrawal from certain drugs. The treatment consists of a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization that typically lasts three days. The inpatient stay includes the following aspects:
- Medical Stabilization
- Appropriate Discharge Planning

What to Expect
Upon admission to the hospital for medical stabilization, assessments of the patient’s fundamental needs are conducted. These assessments include a medical history, physical, a complete laboratory workup and a nursing assessment. This pre-screening process will enable the patient to be admitted alongside a personalized plan for treatment.
Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances, and are considered medically unstable, will be closely observed and stabilized. New Vision™ accepts patients who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms from cessation of use of certain substances, in conjunction with other related health issues.
