    ​​Anyone have experience with a stand alone medical withdrawal unit?  We have some reimbursement questions however most facilities in the area have medical withdrawal units in combination with inpatient rehab.

    Interesting....I have never heard of a medical withdrawal unit.  We are an LTCH and do therapy withdrawals from the ventilator,  but do not a dedicated unit.

    This is a detox unit for drug and alcohol.

    My facility has detox that sometimes is combined with a 28 day rehab, but most chemical dependency patients are detox only.
