With social distancing rules in place across the country due to the coronavirus, many individuals are left wondering about what to do for addiction treatment.
During times like these, it’s easy to push other problems aside and let information overload convince you that there are more pressing problems to face.
COVID-19 and addiction treatment are two large battles to face, a combination that none of us could have predicted.
But it’s important to understand that your addiction doesn’t care about the timing.
Addiction treatment is something that you owe to yourself, not something that should be put on hold.
To make these trying times a bit less overwhelming, we’re staying open for our current patients and new admissions.
Yes we are currently admitting new patients during this pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have provided us with guidelines to follow that will help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Because the virus is often transmitted from person to person through sneeze or cough droplets, following their social distancing rules is crucial in staying healthy.
Additionally, they’re calling for everyone to make the following adjustments:
Without putting your addiction and mental health on the back burner, you can still make healthy choices to keep yourself, your loved ones, and society’s most vulnerable safe.
The coronavirus pandemic doesn’t overshadow your need for addiction treatment, which is why we’re here to tell you about what we’re doing to keep you safe.
Pathfinders is unique in its approach to our temporary new way of living due to COVID-19.
We are closely monitoring our existing patients and new admissions, checking daily to make sure that everyone is healthy and safe.
We have established separate housing for patients that are showing symptoms of coronavirus so that they can be isolated in a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment until we can confirm they are safe to return to normal living accommodations.
If their symptoms progress, they will stay in isolation until they can be admitted to the local hospital. Additionally, we will move forward with social distancing rules in mind.
Whether this means putting more distance between patients and implementing virtual meetings, we are working diligently to hold the same high standard of care while adjusting to the guidelines put in place to keep us all safe.
While we follow the CDC’s guidelines, check for updates daily, and monitor the progress of each of our patients.
We will continue to welcome new patients, as well.
If you are ready to begin your journey to recovery, we’re ready to help you get started.
