Why You Should Not Put Off Addiction Treatment
In light of the evolving COVID-19 Coronavirus situation, you may have questions about seeking addiction treatment at this time. Although large gatherings are banned in many places, and social distancing is quickly becoming the new normal, addiction treatment is still accessible.
Like hospitals and other healthcare providers, addiction treatment is an essential health need, and all four of our campuses remain open to provide life-saving and transformative care.
Addiction never takes a day off, even though much of the world is currently waiting on the sidelines. If you’ve been struggling with substance abuse, but haven’t wanted to disrupt your normal daily routine, now can be the perfect time to seek care.
How We’re Keeping Our Treatment Centers Safe
Although everyone’s lives have been a bit more worrisome and unconventional in recent weeks, your care and well-being remain our top priority at each of our campuses.

The Importance Of Addiction Treatment Right Now
In addition to the measures we’re taking to ensure patient and staff safety, this is also the time to acknowledge that addiction is a disease that requires immediate attention, care, and treatment.
If you contract COVID-19 in the midst of struggling with addiction, things could get worse.
Many people struggling with substance use disorder (SUD) also may be at an increased risk for developing COVID-19 because of limited access to quality healthcare and medication and co-occurring physical and mental health conditions.
However, there is added safety for being around healthcare professionals at this time. If you should have any need arise during your stay, our clinical staff can take immediate and appropriate steps for getting you medical attention on-site, or to a higher level of care.
Rest assured, we continue to serve our patients with the highest quality of addiction treatment care. Please connect with us and we can address any of your questions related to the treatment experience and our heightened health and safety preparedness actions.
