BreakThru – Medical Withdrawal Management Service
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Lake Pointe is pleased to offer BreakThru, a medical withdrawal management service for individuals that are in imminent or active early withdrawal from alcohol or drug abuse. The service:
- Addresses the needs of patients seeking to take the first step toward breaking the cycle of alcohol and drug abuse.
- Patients are served on the medical/surgical floor, where the physical symptoms of the withdrawal process are medically supervised to ensure safety, comfort and confidentiality.
- Doctors and nurses monitor patients’ status, administer medications to ease symptoms and ensure their safety and comfort
- The average length of stay is about three days and the service assists patients entering into the next phase of their recovery after discharge from the hospital.
The initial stages of withdrawal are considered the most difficult. Symptoms can cause severe anxiety, pain, distress and other potentially life-threatening symptoms. The treatment is covered by most health insurance providers, as well as by Medicaid and Medicare.
