Ranch Creek Recovery is committed to the health and safety of all our clients and staff members during this time. We are monitoring the coronavirus, or COVID-19 situation closely, and taking the following precautions.
First and foremost, we are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Beyond that, we are taking additional measures within our own treatment facility, including:
- Temporarily cancelling recovery meetings and family education meetings while providing virtual meeting alternatives
- Offering Telehealth IOP services
- Limiting family and other visitation, and screening those who are coming onsite
- Disinfecting all areas of our facility and residences, especially high traffic areas
- Requiring scheduled handwashing for all clients and staff throughout the day
We are still accepting new clients to our treatment center, but we are taking precautions that include screening all calls for infection and doing additional screening upon entering our facility. These measures are being taken to protect all our current clients and staff at Ranch Creek Recovery.
Should I Seek Addiction Treatment in the Wake of the Coronavirus?
The CDC has said that alcohol or drug overdose still far outweighs the risk of contracting COVID-19. Those suffering from alcohol or drug addiction may also be at greater risk of getting the virus because substance abuse can weaken the immune system.
If you’re struggling with addiction and not sure if you should seek treatment, now is actually an ideal time to enter rehab. At Ranch Creek Recovery, our treatment center only treats 6 clients at a time. This means you’ll be away from crowds of people, be near medical personnel if you need them and have a support system close by to help you avoid isolation and boredom that often trigger substance abuse.
Please don’t let COVID-19 stop you from seeking treatment and reach out to us today to learn how you can get started.
How to Prevent Contracting COVID-19
As you’re trying to prevent contracting and spreading the virus, remember to follow standard sanitary procedures. Most importantly, remember to wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.
You should also follow the following best practices:
- Regularly disinfect and clean countertops, doorknobs, workstations and any other surfaces that are touched often
- Cover your mouth with your arm, elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing
- Avoid touching any part of your face, especially your mouth, nose and eyes
- Use hand sanitizer often if you aren’t in a place where you can wash your hands
- Distance yourself from people showing COVID-19 symptoms
