Substance Abuse Treatment

New Vision™

There are many reasons people use and then abuse alcohol and other chemicals. Severe depression, grief, break up of marriages, loss of jobs, homes and families are all familiar causes. The truth is, alcohol and drug dependencies are medical and personal. The question of why does not overshadow the reality of who and what. That is, who the disease of chemical addiction is hurting - women, men, children, parents, friends and families to name a few, and secondly, what harm the disease can do to one’s physical health and well-being.

Like other diseases, addiction impacts men and women of all ages, all faiths, professions and walks of life. During times of crisis and before the road to long-term recovery, sometimes there is a need for immediate and emergent medical intervention. Stabilization comes first and then a new lease on life and a New Vision for living healthy, balanced and free of addiction.

Offered through HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital, New Vision™ is a short-term inpatient medical stabilization service for adults with drug and/or alcohol issues.

New Vision accepts appropriate patients who are experiencing incapacitation due to substance use or are experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms. The service is administered by qualified medical professionals and ensures that each person receives individualized care and safe, appropriate treatment.
New Vision accepts traditional Medicaid, Medicare and most commercial insurance plans for inpatient treatment. The hospital and New Vision offer the privacy and sensitivity families need to become stable and begin the road to long-term recovery.
