Arrow Passage Recovery Response to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
Published March 18, 2020
At Arrow Passage Recovery, the health and well-being of our patients, their families, staff, and communities are top priority. We are committed to takingr responsive measures in accordance with Ohio Governor Mike Dewine and recommendations from our own Chief Medical Director, the Center for Disease Control, OhioMHAS, and our local health department.
Implemented Safety Measures
We have implemented changes to programming, visitations, and have taken measures to ensure the safety of our Addiction Placement Specialists. Some of the changes are as follows:
- We have enhanced our already comprehensive sanitation/disinfectant process and protocols in all of our office spaces, vehicles, and residential location.
- We have implemented stricter hygiene protocols for staff and patients.
- Staff are required to monitor for any symptoms. If they feel ill, they are required to stay home. All staff are to have their temperature logged before every shift.
- All outside activities have been temporarily postponed. Our patients will not be attending outside meetings, rec center, or community sober fun events. Our patients will be taking advantage of online meetings and we are adding additional fun activities to our programming.
- Visitation has been postponed until further notice and phone calls have been increased in order for loved ones to check on each other.
- All in-person business meetings have been cancelled in order to protect our workers in the field. All of our Addiction Placement Specialists have been working remotely from home and will continue to do so until further notice.
- Only required personnel are permitted into Arrow Passage Recovery facilities.
We Are Currently Accepting New Patients
When our admissions team are speaking to individuals seeking treatment, we are completing more in depth, comprehensive medical screenings. If an individual is reporting any symptoms of COVID-19, we are referring them to their primary care physicians in order for their doctor to determine if an emergency room visit or hospitalization level of care is required. If they do not have a primary care physician, we are recommending they call their local emergency room for further instruction/guidance.
We are continuing to monitor this worldwide pandemic extremely closely and will keep you informed on further updates.
We are still accepting new patients. For more information, please call our admissions department at 844.80.ARROW
