Medical Detox Unit
We have now commissioned a Medical Withdrawal Service, available for alcohol and/or prescription drug dependent patients with private health insurance or a DVA Gold Card. Under this shared model of care, patients are dually treated by a gastroenterologist and psychiatrist.
This exciting initiative, the first of its kind in Geelong, will allow immediate access to detox and provide patients with an intensive multi-disciplinary approach to care within Geelong Private Hospital.
Patients will undergo phone triage and outpatient assessment by our staff at The Geelong Clinic, to ensure they meet suitability criteria for subsequent admission at Geelong Private Hospital.
All staff working in the area have expertise and knowledge in caring for patients undergoing medical withdrawal. They are well supported by the 24-hour cover provided by our onsite Medical Officers and Hospital Intensivists.
