Drug & Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment
Break through the cycle of addition
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 East Liverpool City Hospital, offers an inpatient medical
stabilization service for adults with drug, alcohol, or related health issues.
The service 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 3 days.
The inpatient stay includes the following aspects:
- Medical Stabilization
- Appropriate Discharge Planning

What to Expect
Upon admission to the hospital for medical stabilization, assessment of

These assessments include:
- A medical history
- A complete laboratory workup
- A nursing assessment
This pre-screening process will enable the patient to be admitted alongside
a personalized plan for treatment.

of use of certain substances, in conjunction with other related health issues.
