What Should I Ask a Treatment Center to Ensure I will be Safe from CoVID-19 during Treatment?

Now that you have decided to seek help for your struggle with addiction, you should be vetting potential treatment centers to which you will seek admittance. One additional consideration is the individual center’s strategies for protecting their clients from CoVID-19 during the treatment process. There are a few key questions which you should ask each center’s representative in order to determine how comfortable and safe you will feel residing in the facility in the midst of the pandemic. Let’s go over a few of them now.

First, you should ask what sort of screenings for the virus are performed on clients entering the residential facility This is important as a major component of any inpatient treatment program involves contact with other clients either in group therapy or other social activities. It is therefore important to ensure all clients are virus-free in order to prevent the spread of CoVID-19 in the residential community. As long as clients are thoroughly screened prior to admission or, better yet, are required to provide documentation of a negative CoVID-19 test result conducted recently, you can rest assured you will be safe as you participate in the recovery program at your selected treatment center.

Next, you should inquire as to the frequency of testing conducted on staff members at each treatment center. While the clients spend all of their time in the confines of the facility, staff members clock out and re-enter society at large, with all the potential for exposure to CoVID-19 that entails. Due to this reality, a reputable treatment center will test each staff member regularly and often to ensure the safety and health of everyone involved in the treatment program, clients and employees alike.

The decision to seek help for a substance abuse problem is one of the most difficult, and most important, choices you will make in your lifetime. You would be doing yourself and your sobriety a disservice by not thoroughly vetting your treatment center of choice to make certain they will protect your health during your time at their facility. This can be easily accomplished during your conversations with the representatives of these centers in the course of your exploring their admissions processes.
