Is it Safe for me to Attend Inpatient Treatment Amid the Pandemic?

We are living in strange and unprecedented times, with the pandemic showing little sign of receding and fresh closures being announced in several hotspots. This environment of fear may have you second guessing whether or not this is the best time for you to seek treatment for your substance abuse problem. As long as you take some common sense precautions when vetting the specific treatment center you end up choosing, this could be the perfect time for you to take the leap and begin pursuing sobriety.

There have been a wide range of consequences stemming from our government’s attempts to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. For many, business closures have forced management to furlough large portions of their staff for the foreseeable future. While this is not an ideal circumstance for you to find yourself in financially, it could be a blessing in disguise for your recovery. What better time to seek inpatient residential treatment for your substance abuse disorder than when a temporary absence from work is already necessitated by the shutdown? This is an excellent opportunity for you to escape the anxieties of the outside world and focus on restoring your health and mental clarity through recovery.

When it comes to protecting your health as it pertains to the spread of CoVID-19, you will be hard pressed to find a better location to find yourself in than a controlled, medically supervised facility complete with disinfection protocols and community controls designed to mitigate the spread of germs. At Evolutions Treatment Center, we have taken all necessary precautions to ensure our clients will not be at risk for exposure to CoVID-19. All our staff undergo regular testing for the virus, and incoming patients are screened for the virus as well. We take every step to ensure our residential facilities continue to be a safe place for you to begin your journey in recovery.

A substance abuse disorder is an even greater risk to your life during these uncertain times. The ongoing pandemic has had a ripple effect on everything in our lives, from an increase in stress to the increasing prevalence of overdose deaths due to tainted drugs hitting the streets. Given these facts, you should feel even more compelled to seek treatment for your addiction in the current chaotic environment. Here at Evolutions Treatment Center, we are equipped to keep you safe and comfortable during these critical early stages of your recovery.
