Coronavirus and Addiction Treatment

With person-to-person transmission being the most common method of spreading the coronavirus, it’s easy for other problems and health concerns to fall to the wayside.

Coronavirus and addiction treatment are two things you may have never thought would go together, but addiction doesn’t wait for the timing to be right.

The heightened stress and anxiety levels that are caused by all of the uncertainty around the coronavirus make it even more important to seek addiction treatment.

That’s why we’re staying open for our patients during this difficult time. Yes, we are admitting new patients during this pandemic.

Precautions to Slow the Spread of Coronavirus

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the best way to prevent contracting Coronavirus is to avoid being exposed to it.

This means following proper social distancing guidelines.

Frequently washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (or using hand sanitizer if you don’t have access to soap and water).

You should avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. You should also avoid being close to people you know are sick, and others in general, especially if you know that you or they are considered at-risk individuals.

The CDC has also recently released updated travel guidelines that suggest you proceed with caution. Consider the safety of yourself and other travelers before you plan any non-essential travel.

Additionally, take some time to look into the Suncity and Surprise areas since you will be traveling here: what precautions are we taking? You can find this information on our local health department’s website.

We can also let you know what our area is doing when you call. We can all play our part in keeping ourselves, our loved ones, and others safe.

And this can all be done without sacrificing our own mental and addiction health in the process. Addiction and recovery don’t take breaks, no matter what else is going on outside.

So, with all of that being said, how do Coronavirus and addiction treatment go together at your local rehab centers?
