Substance Abuse/Medical Stabilization Service
Abbeville General now has a substance abuse/medical stabilization service called New Vision™. New Vision™ is a medically-supervised, hospital-based service for adults experiencing impending or active withdrawal from alcohol, prescription medications, and/or other drugs. We offer inpatient medical stabilization and withdrawal management for appropriate adults. Only a licensed physician can determine who qualifies for the services of New Vision™. Patients are admitted to the hospital for a short, inpatient stay and are treated by the hospital’s doctors and nurses.
Our New Vision™ staff work with patients along with the Medical Director and the nursing staff, creating a discharge plan and connecting the patient with continuing care in the community. Our withdrawal management services include short-term, inpatient hospital stays (typically 3-5 days), confidential hospital environment under the supervision of a Medical Director and nursing staff, and post-stabilization referral to a continued care recovery program. Aftercare referral can consist of inpatient rehabilitation, long-term detox, or outpatient rehabilitation dependent upon the individual needs of each patient. Contact us today if you find yourself or a loved one in need of medical stabilization or withdrawal management.
