We believe that Chemical Dependency is a treatable medical disease. At Behavioral Health Center (BHC) CMC-Mercy Horizons, we treat adults age 18 and older who are suffering from alcohol and/or drug addiction. Patients admitted to this level of care will receive a complete medical evaluation and follow a prescribed detoxification regimen directed by a licensed physician.
We are proud to offer a medical detoxification program providing the highest quality of care in the Carolinas. Our program offers individual patient-centered care and has consistently been rated with a high degree of excellence by our patients.
- Medical detoxification in a hospital setting
- Ability to treat medically compromised patients
- Medicaid, Medicare and most insurance plans accepted
- Admissions and referrals accepted around the clock, seven days a week
We offer the only hospital-based medical detoxification program in Mecklenburg County. With an 11-bed detoxification unit, we are able to give each patient personalized attention. Additionally, we are a part of a large regional medical facility which means we are able to treat patients who may have a higher level of medical acuity. CMC-Mercy Horizons succeeds because of its well-trained, skilled, seasoned professionals who design and implement treatment plans based on patients' individual medical and clinical needs.
