Inpatient Chemical Dependency Program

New Vision Medical Stabilization Service
314.653.4452 

Christian Hospital partners with New VisionTM Medical Stabilization, an inpatient medical stabilization service for adults with drug, alcohol and related health concerns. 

The service accepts appropriate adults, who are currently using or are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs. It consists of a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization that typically lasts three nights, with discharge on the fourth day.

The inpatient stay includes the following aspects:
  • Pre-Screening
  • Assessment
  • Admission
  • Medical Stabilization 
  • Appropriate Discharge Planning
New Vision's treatment team includes a medical director and nursing personnel who use a multidisciplinary team approach in patient stabilization.

Upon admission to the hospital for medical stabilization, the patient's fundamental needs are assessed. These assessments include a medical history, physical, a complete laboratory workup and a nursing assessment. Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances and who are considered medically unstable will be closely observed and stabilized. 

The hospital accepts appropriate patients who are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and drugs. The diagnosis of need for inpatient admission can only be made by a licensed physician. The service accepts most insurance, Medicaid and Medicare plans.
