Hope for those with Addiction
DCH Inpatient Medical Stabilization treats patients who suffer from substance abuse addictions while in a safe and confidential environment. Medical Stabilization begins with a short hospital stay while providing evidence based treatment for opiate addiction.
During your stay at DCH, you will receive compassionate care and support, educational materials, and a discharge plan to assure proper support is in place after you leave.
Medical Stabilization is a voluntary, scheduled admission, and patients must meet certain requirements.
The use and abuse of opiates and/or other chemicals can disrupt a person's life in many ways. Loss of job, breakup of marriages and families, loss of self-esteem, and even loss of life can result from the continued abuse of opiates and/or other drugs. However, with proper treatment and an ongoing desire to remain free of substance use, individuals can resume and maintain healthy and productive lifestyles.

DCH Medical Stabilization allows patients to concentrate on their own physical well-being while preparing to begin follow-up treatment and counseling after discharge. Patients will receive daily medical and nursing care that is physician directed.
