At Footprints Beachside Recovery, our top priority is the health and wellness of all of our clients and staff. We know this is a scary and confusing time, which is why we’re determined to help and continue providing safe and high-quality addiction treatment. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus, or COVID-19 situation, and are following the advice and guidance of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.
As a small, boutique addiction treatment center that only treats a small group of people at a time, we are set up to keep all clients and staff healthy and safe during this time. We encourage all our clients and staff to practice social distancing and we are taking additional steps to ensure the cleanliness of our treatment facility and residences.
Should I Wait For Addiction Treatment Because of Coronavirus?
Although it might seem overwhelming at first, we encourage all who are seeking addiction treatment to reach out to us immediately. Drug or alcohol abuse poses a greater threat to your health and may even make you more susceptible to COVID-19.
Enrolling in addiction treatment right now also guarantees that you will have people around you caring for your health and supporting you through treatment. COVID-19 is leading to a lot of isolation in order to lower the spread of the disease, but this can be dangerous for those suffering from addiction. While our facility is practicing social distancing, you’ll still have a core group of people with you to keep you company and prevent you from drinking or using drugs.
If you’re suffering from addiction and need help, Footprints Beachside Recovery can be that safe haven you’re looking for during this time.
Ways to Help Prevent Contracting the Virus
There are a number of ways to limit your risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19. Whether you are in addiction treatment or not, be sure to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Other ways to help protect yourself against COVID-19 include:
- Avoiding touching your eyes, mouth, nose or any part of your face
- Disinfecting any areas of your home that are used often, such as countertops, door handles and light switches
- Using hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol if you can’t wash your hands
- Distancing yourself from people showing COVID-19 signs and symptoms
- Covering your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
