REFERRAL AND ADMISSION
Morris Village accepts three types of admissions: voluntary, judicial (by order of probate court), and emergency (by examination and affidavit of a licensed physician).
Referrals are received from hospitals, probate courts, county alcohol and drug treatment providers and local mental health centers. Prospective patients should contact their designated county alcohol and drug commission or their county mental health center to facilitate a referral to Morris Village. Family members can contact their local probate courts if they have any questions about judicial commitments.
Eligibility: The criteria for patient admission to Morris Village:
- Must be a South Carolina resident
- Must be 18 or older
- Must be diagnosed with substance dependence
The progression of addiction must be severe enough to warrant inpatient treatment (i.e. previous outpatient treatment experience, history of relapse, poor recovery environment, need for 24 hour treatment structure, etc.)
Patients will not be denied services based on their ability to pay. Many insurance companies cover services provided by Morris Village. Morris Village does not accept Medicare A and Medicaid. Patients are responsible for payment of services.
Questions regarding charges or payments of charges, inquiries should be directed to the South Carolina Department of Mental Health Reimbursement Office at (803)-898-8405.
