Medical Stabilization Unit

Centra's Medical Stabilization Unit at Virginia Baptist Hospital offers medically supervised stabilization from alcohol and drugs.  We offer medication to relieve the pain of withdrawal while medically supervising the process.

Our mission is to assist our patients in engaging in effective substance use disorder treatment. The unit is designed for rapid (2-4 day) treatment during which patients undergo medically supervised withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, along with medical  stabilization. Treatment is conducted with the clear goal of engaging our patients in effective treatment after discharge.
