Care Regional Medical Center provides services assisting people who are physically dependent on alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal drugs. Individuals are screened, and if appropriate, admitted to Care Regional Medical Center for medical stabilization during the acute stages of withdrawal. Our patients are provided with a private room on a medical floor where they are monitored by the Medical Director and a full nursing staff. All patients admitted to CRMC will be treated as a confidential patient.
The CARE Medical Detox Service treats the medical condition of the patient. Our patients are admitted under a medical diagnosis and are not in a locked facility, unit or wing of the hospital.
CARE Medical Detox will help facilitate the admission to a residential or outpatient treatment program upon discharge to assist in the recovery process.
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, most insurance, and private pay patients. We also accept County Indigent patients from Webb, Hidalgo and other counties with approval from that County Indigent Program.
Care Regional Medical Center provides the highest and safest level of care for treating the withdrawals from alcohol and other drugs. We have immediate access to our Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Room if serious complications develop.
