Hospital Offers New Service to Help Patients with Substance Abuse Withdrawal

February 21, 2013

LewisGale Hospital Alleghany, in partnership with SpecialCare Hospital Management Corporation, is pleased to introduce New Vision™, an inpatient medical stabilization service designed to help adults safely withdraw from drugs and/or alcohol.

The service is targeted to patients who are experiencing incapacitation due to substance use or abuse, or are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms and other related health issues. Patients who are under the influence of chemical substances, and are considered medically unstable, will be closely observed and stabilized.

“We believe this service will give patients the medical help they need to begin to break the cycle of addiction in a safe and effective manner,” said Greg Madsen, CEO, LewisGale Hospital Alleghany. “With this service now available in our community more families will get the support they need when they need it most.”

The New Vision™ service utilizes a multi-disciplinary team approach in the individualized treatment of each patient. The inpatient stay typically lasts between three to five days and includes the following aspects:

•  Pre-Screening
•  Assessment
•  Admission
•  Medical Stabilization
•  Appropriate Discharge Planning

New Vision™ Service at LewisGale Hospital Alleghany will begin accepting patients on February 27. The service accepts most insurance, Medicaid and Medicare plans. For additional information, please call 800-939-2273 or 540-862-6770.
