As we continue to monitor the latest developments of COVID-19, our priority remains the health, safety, and security of our patients, workforce members, and community. We are taking a measured response to mitigate risk and have made the following decisions about our services.
Beginning Monday, November 30th, Keystone will be having onsite services. Walk-in assessments will be held Monday – Wednesday 8 am – 2 pm or Fridays 8 am – 10 am. To schedule a telehealth assessment, please call 803-324-1800.
Outpatient groups will move back to small group sizes following social distancing guidelines. All patients will have their temperature taken upon entering. Patients will wash their hands before receiving any services, and they are required to wear a mask at all times while inside the buildings. If a patient does not want to wear a mask or has a medical condition preventing them from wearing a mask, they will be offered telehealth services.
MAT appointments will resume onsite. Narcan is available for patients and/or individuals who have a loved one in need to help reduce the risk of overdose from coming in contact with opioids. To obtain Narcan, contact Keystone’s main office Monday-Friday 8 am – 4 pm at 803-324-1800. If it is outside of this time frame, please contact our inpatient unit at 803-324-0404.
Our withdrawal management services (detox) and Residential services will operate as usual with a decreased census to allow for social distancing between patients by giving each patient their own room. New patients will be accepted as decreased census allows.
Prevention services will continue programs and presentations virtually.
Keystone’s leadership team will continue to monitor the situation daily for the safety of our staff and patients.
