Inpatient Medical Detoxification
The 4-East nursing unit is a 30-bed general medicine unit providing multidisciplinary care to patients with acute opiate and/or alcohol withdrawal or alcohol intoxication as their primary diagnosis. Medical detoxification is the safe management of the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping drug and/or alcohol use. The healthcare team works with the patient to stabilize their withdrawal symptoms as well as manage any other acute medical problems. While detoxification alone does not treat addiction, for many patients it is the needed first step. Once stabilized, patients are provided with referrals for treatment of their addiction as well as follow up for any other medical problems. Better Addiction Care provides pre-screening for patients seeking direct admissions as well as referrals for addiction treatment for discharge planning.
