Examples of types of care that may be provided at CARE Medical Detox at Care Regional Medical Center Hospital in Aransas Pass, Texas:
I would like to introduce a new service at Care Regional Medical Center Hospital (CRMC) in Aransas Pass, Texas. We are a detox service that treats the withdrawal and medical complications associated with dependency on alcohol and other drugs.
The service we provide is assisting people who are physically dependent on alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal drugs. CRMC provides this service by screening the individual, and if appropriate, facilitates the admission to Care Regional Medical Center Hospital for medical stabilization during the acute stages of withdrawal. Since this is considered a medical procedure the person is provided with a private room on a medical floor. Once admitted the patient will be monitored by the Medical Director and a full nursing staff. All patients admitted to CRMC will be treated as a confidential patient. The average length of stay is three to five days, dependent upon the patient’s need
Since we are a medical hospital we treat the medical condition of the patient, whereas behavioral hospitals or treatment centers focus is on the psychological components. The patient is admitted under a medical diagnosis rather than a psychiatric diagnosis. The patient is not in a locked facility, unit or wing of the hospital. They are treated like any other patient on a medical floor. During the patient’s stay at the hospital, the detox staff is working with the patient on a discharge plan. We will help facilitate the admission to a residential or outpatient treatment center upon discharge for the continuum of care and their recovery process. We also have a Psychiatric unit and provide Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment.
As a Medical Center Hospital, we consider ourselves to be the highest and safest level of care for treating the withdrawals from alcohol and other drugs. And we have immediate access to the intensive care unit and emergency room if serious complications develop. Often patients that go to a behavioral hospital or treatment center for detox need to be transferred or referred to us because hey are unequipped to handle some of the serious medical complications associated with withdrawal. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, most insurance, and cash or credit cards. We also accept approved County Indigent clients from Webb and Hidalgo counties.
You might ask, how can you benefit from our services?
As a patient you can regain your life, spirituality, health, and possibly your job and family. As an employer you can regain your key employee, cut down on absenteeism, increase productivity, and cut back on lost revenue due to addiction in the workplace. Your employee can be admitted on Friday and possibly be discharged the following Monday.
As an insurance provider you can decrease the high cost of health care by utilizing an effective 3-5 day hospital medical stabilization service that is significantly less costly than a 7-21 day treatment program.
As a referral source we can “help you help you help your client” towards the first step to sobriety. To facilitate the continuum of care we will obtain consent and will contact you regarding the patient’s recommended discharge plan.
I would welcome the opportunity in providing a presentation on our services to you and your staff at your convenience. If we can be of any further assistance, or if you have a referral please don’t hesitate to call and ask for Frank. Thank you for considering CRMC detox, psyche, and outpatient services
