Touchette Regional Hospital Raises Awareness for Addiction Recovery Resources

January 10, 2018

Touchette Regional Hospital (TRH) is raising awareness for addiction recovery resources. While the most common New Year’s resolution surrounds weight-loss, some individuals are focused on addiction recovery. 

An addiction is the use of substances that disrupt a person’s life. They can develop from any number of life circumstances ranging from job loss, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Recovery involves setting goals and working to achieve them, and the new year naturally feels like a perfect opportunity to take on the challenge of a recovery program. 

TRH offers the NEW VISIONTM medical stabilization service for individuals facing addiction challenges with drugs, alcohol, and other health-related difficulties. This service accepts patients who are experiencing incapacitation due to substance use or those who are experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms.

“When beginning stabilization with NEW VISIONTM, the patient participates in a medically supervised hospital stay at TRH,” says Dr. Louis Gary, medical director for NEW VISIONTM at TRH. “This time is essential for inpatient treatment and substance management. The stay typically lasts three days and is overseen by qualified hospital personnel, which include a medical director and nursing staff.”

Addiction recovery is possible and Touchette Regional Hospital can help. The NEW VISIONTM medical stabilization service combined with goals of becoming substance-free, can help secure a healthy lifestyle. With qualified medical personnel serving as your support system, you can achieve great progress in just one year. If you haven’t met with a healthcare professional to create a plan for a successful recovery, call NEW VISIONTM at 618-332-5204.
