With the increasing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic and the coronavirus spread in the United States, unique and unprecedented precautions are taking place across the country to keep us safe.
At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, our drug rehab center is committed to protecting our patients and staff. This is why we continue to follow all the suggested guidelines by local, state, and federal health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
COVID-19 Protocols at Lighthouse Recovery Institute
Our first priority at our Florida rehab treatment center is the health and safety of our patients and staff members while they all continue to works towards recovery. We specialize in various addiction treatment programs. We’re taking the threat of the coronavirus seriously, as it could dampen the health and wellness of those seeking addiction recovery.
Our team has implemented a thorough Coronavirus protocol adapted for drug rehab centers to protect current patients and staff members. These safety protocols also allow us to be ready to accept anyone beginning their addiction treatment recovery journal.
Lighthouse Recovery Institute’s Coronavirus protocol includes such measures as:
- We are screening for COVID-19 symptoms before admission into our addiction treatment center.
- Thorough disinfection and sanitation of all facility grounds, including inpatient residences, therapy rooms, and other rooms regularly.
- Continous monitoring of staff members to screen for possible symptoms of Coronavirus.
Simultaneously, requiring any staff member who believes is presenting symptoms of Coronavirus to remain home until proven otherwise.
- Continued monitoring of all patient’s health and signs of Coronavirus through testing efforts.
- Deployment of cleaning supplies, face masks, and hand sanitizer to help prevent the spread of the virus.
- Enforcement of social distancing guidelines in group therapy sessions and any other close contact situation between patients and staff.
As the Coronavirus continues to spread in our communities, our efforts remain with our patients and staff members. We’ve seen the devastating effects this pandemic has had on everyone’s mental health state and how fragile those struggling with substance use disorders feel right now. This is why, today more than ever, our commitment remains to offer a safe and protected environment to anyone seeking help for addiction.
Unfortunately, when it comes to substance abuse, holding off on seeking help isn’t an option. When your life is at stake, we do everything in our power to keep you and your loved ones safe. That’s why we’re taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of our rehab facility, so we can keep our doors open to you whenever you’re ready to start your recovery journey.
Helping Prevent the Spead of COVD-19 In and Out of Drug Rehab
In addition to our Coronavirus safety protocols for drug rehab, we’re also following the CDC’s suggestions on preventing the spread of Coronavirus. To help prevent the spread of the virus in and out of our drug rehab center, we’re encouraging patients and staff members to follow these tips, including:
- Washing hands regularly with soap and water.
- Using hand sanitizer after touching any surfaces.
- Avoiding touching the face.
- Covering mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, washing the hands immediately after.
- Maintaining social distancing.
