Safety for Patients and Staff
Our superior addiction treatment program for men and women is anchored by the unmatched care that we provide to our patients and staff. With this in mind, we ensure that our hygiene and safety standards are strict and followed at all times. Our medical staff remains up-to-date on all coronavirus best practices. Based upon the CDC guidelines, any staff member who has had direct contact with COVID-19 or shows virus symptoms is required to self-isolate for 14 days with no symptoms from the time of contact.
Admissions at Windward Way
Windward Way screens every patient prior to starting our addiction recovery program. Additionally, we sit down with each new patient and review essential matters such as potential exposure, symptoms of the virus, travel history, and direct contact with any other persons diagnosed with COVID-19. If a patient does screen positive, they will not be admitted to treatment. If a patient screens negative, they will then be eligible for admission to our treatment program.
Sanitation at Our Facility
Windward Way has a stringent cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing standard policy. Nevertheless, we have increased our deep cleaning processes in order to appropriately tackle any potential hygiene concerns. Beyond that, our staff and our patients are told to practice proper hand hygiene and avoid any skin to skin contact.
COVID-19 Therapy Options
The emotional influence of COVID-19 has hit every person in one way or another. With this in mind, Windward Way’s therapists have been trained on the impact of anxiety connected to COVID-19. We are running groups to work through these challenges together.
