- Drug & Alcohol Treatment
The Detox Unit at Nassau University Medical Center helps people safely withdraw from alcohol, opiates and other addictive drugs in a controlled medical environment. Both the Detox and Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Units are closed units on the hospital’s recently renovated 10th floor. There, our multidisciplinary team of physicians, psychologists, chemical dependency counselors, social workers, nurses, nutritionists and clergy provides not only help, but also hope for those affected by chemical dependency. Along with medically-managed detoxification, patients are educated about addiction, with particular stress on detoxification as only the first step in treatment. On average, patients complete detox in five days, but all treatment plans are tailored to best facilitate each individual’s own process of recovery.
Above all, the staff of NuHealth’s Chemical Dependency Detoxification Unit at Nassau University Medical Center strives to motivate patients to continue treatment and do all we can to see that our patients are placed in an appropriate inpatient or outpatient program as soon as they are ready for discharge.
Our psychiatrists, nurses, licensed social workers, credentialed addiction counselors and other professionals also provide full medical evaluations and arrange consultations with specialists as needed. Most important, the staff at NuHealth’s Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Unit helps patients organize continuing treatment and obtain referrals for essential support services – because we know well that the journey to freedom from substance abuse is often long, difficult, and accomplished in fits and starts.
