What is New Vision™?

Millions of people across the country struggle with substance use disorder. Substance use is rarely an “at home” problem and can affect every aspect of the person’s life, including school, community, and work.

Substance use disorder is a health issue, not a personal choice.

Unfortunately, far too many people are hesitant to go to the hospital for help because they fear the symptoms of withdrawal during detoxification. Additionally, abruptly ceasing alcohol or drug use can be dangerous.

New Vision at Anderson offers an inpatient medical stabilization service for adults with drug, alcohol or related health issues. The service accepts adults 18 & older who are currently using or are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms from certain drugs.

What to Expect

Upon admission to the hospital for medical stabilization, assessments of the patient’s fundamental needs are conducted. These assessments include a medical history, physical, a complete laboratory workup and a nursing assessment. This pre-screening process will enable the patient to be admitted alongside a personalized plan for treatment.

Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances, and are considered medically unstable, will be closely observed and stabilized. New Vision accepts patients who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms from cessation of use of certain substances, in conjunction with other related health issues.

The treatment consists of a medically supervised hospital stay for inpatient stabilization that typically lasts 3 days. The inpatient stay includes:

  • Pre-screening
  • Assessment
  • Admission
  • Medical stabilization
  • Discharge planning

Discharge planning occurs prior to the patient leaving the hospital, and the patient is referred to appropriate community based treatment programs to help prevent relapse and continue treatment.

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines (like Valium or Xanax)
