During this turbulent time, we want to first take a moment to remember all those most affected by this crisis, from patients and families to the healthcare workers and first responders who care for them and the many Americans working in “critical industries” at this time. The mental health pressures are enormous right now, and we want to reassure you that we remain committed to serving as a trusted treatment resource— now more than ever.
We want to assure you that we are continuing to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak and we are actively following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in real time. The welfare of our staff and patients remains our utmost concern and is at the forefront of all of our policies and procedures.
We are taking every possible precaution to protect our staff and our patients and to keep our community free of the virus. We have therefore implemented high-level infection control procedures and have enacted strict policies to ensure that patients have minimal exposure to any viruses in the outside population. Our experienced and dedicated medical professionals are checking patients’ and staff-members vital signs regularly and vigilantly monitoring them for any first signs of illness.
These measures are part of an evolving plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are staying in close communication with state, local and federal officials so that we can monitor and manage any new, on-the-ground developments. We are prepared to respond quickly and effectively to protect our staff and patients. Their best interests are (and will remain) at the center of our decisions regarding how to respond to COVID-19.
Given the larger climate of fear and uncertainty over the Coronavirus, we wanted to end with a note of reassurance: We are here for you. We will continue to provide the high-quality treatment that our patients need, because we understand the human urgency of addiction and mental health disorders. These do not stop for Coronavirus. Neither will we. Our admissions counselors are available 24/7 to answer any questions. Please do not hesitate to call us if we can be of assistance in any way.
