Breaking an addiction to drugs or alcohol is a tough challenge to face, and the odds of success are greatly stacked against patients who do not seek medically-supervised care through the initial phase of withdrawal. To create a pathway to success in this area, St. Petersburg General Hospital provides inpatient medical stabilization to manage withdrawal symptoms. With this added comfort and support, patients will not only improve their safety during detox, but they will have a higher chance of a successful recovery. The inpatient program may last three to five days, depending on the patient’s needs, and care is completed with referrals to rehabilitation and counseling programs.
If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, St. Petersburg General Hospital may be the first step in breaking the cycle. You can learn more about our inpatient addiction recovery program by calling us at (888) 741-5122 to speak with one of our registered nurses that are available 24/7.
