Here at Scottsdale Providence, we believe that nothing should stand in the way of change. For people that are ready and willing, transformation can happen under any circumstances. Even lockdown.
During the international crisis caused by COVID-19, treatment facilities are considered an essential service. People in need of treatment for substance abuse or behavioral health issues can leave home to seek care. And thankfully, treatment is the best possible place to be during this time.
At SPRC, we take the safety of our clients, staff, and community very seriously. We are strictly adhering to recommendations from state and federal health agencies, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for facilities such as ours, including:
- Before admission, asking potential patients questions on travel history, flu-like symptoms, and their contact with individuals who are confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19
- Increased cleaning and sanitation services within our facility and housing services, posted educational material for patients and staff regarding personal hygiene and increased availability of sanitation/disinfectant materials
- Implemented health and safety protocols for patients presenting with flu-like symptoms, including emergency quarantine and medical transfer protocols
- Implemented hand hygiene protocols in accordance with guidelines issued by the CDC
- Suspending visitation to our facilities and limiting outside excursions by patients
- Instructing staff to stay home if they are sick, pursuant to CDC recommendations
- Limiting business-related travel to essential trips only
Currently, there are no reports of any infectious illness at our facility.
We believe that there is opportunity in crisis. Whether it’s coronavirus, a job, or a relationship – nothing needs to stand in the way of your recovery. There is no better time than now to prioritize your health and well being.
If you have questions, please reach out. Our commitment to the health of our clients and community remains as important as ever. We are taking robust measures to make sure we can continue to provide our vital service to those in need, while also protecting our staff and other vulnerable populations within our state.
We are confident that we will successfully navigate this unprecedented territory together. Thank you for your continued trust.
