Wilson Health adds detox services for patients battling addiction


SIDNEY – Wilson Health is now offering medical stabilization and detox services to help people overcome withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addictions through New Vision medical stabilization service.

“The battle to be free from alcohol or drug dependency is never easy, but it can be won,” said Linda Maurer, chief nursing officer at Wilson Health. “We are committed to offering our patients hospital detoxification services with a compassionate and personalized approach. Every patient has unique needs in his or her personal battle and we are here to help break the cycle of addiction.”

New Vision at Wilson Health serves adults with a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization, which usually lasts three days. The inpatient stay will include prescreening, assessment, admission, medical stabilization and discharge planning. Upon admission, an assessment will be completed with an evaluation of the patient’s medical history, a physical, a laboratory workup and nursing assessment.

Discharge planning will occur prior to leaving the hospital; the patient will be referred to appropriate community-based treatment programs to help prevent relapse and continue their treatment.

New Vision at Wilson Health accepts patients who self-refer: a physician’s referral is not necessary for admission. Patients can only be admitted by a licensed physician, and will be admitted five days a week. The hospital accepts most commercial insurance, Medicaid, Medicare and cash pay.
