Mansfield Rotary Club

Rotarian Secretary and Treasurer, Teri Byrd, introduced fellow DeSoto Regional Health System co-worker Natalie Ball.  Mrs. Ball is the NewVision Administrator there and told the Club about her department now at DeSoto Regional called NewVision Withdrawal Management.  NewVision has offices nationwide and offers inpatient medical stabilization and withdrawal management for individuals with drug, alcohol or related issues.  They accept most insurance plans, and the service is consisting of a medically supervised inpatient hospital stay the typically will last for 3 days.

Natalie lives in the Haughton area with her husband and children and is passionate about getting NewVision up and running in the DeSoto Area.  She stresses that the individuals that come to her must want help in withdrawing from the drugs or alcohol that is ruining their lives.  Several of the members, Retired Judge Robert Burgess, Judge Nick Gasper, and Asst. D.A. Lisa Lobrano Burson were eager to question Mrs. Ball about how her department could interact with the Parish’s court systems.  You may call her for a free assessment at 1-800-939-CARE or email

The weather cooperated and attendance was a little better, but the self-made sandwiches were as good as always and the Club welcomes Mrs. Natalie Ball back for the next meeting.  That meeting will be on 03/01/23 at the Mansfield Female College Museum Library for lunch.
