We wanted to reach out to share an update.
We are very concerned about the COVID-19 virus and how the many changes it has caused are affecting our extended treatment community.
As of right now, Cycles of Change Residential is open and accepting clients.
Our Response to the Increased recommendations for Sanitary Measures Includes:
- All facility staff have been vaccinated.
- Increased sanitization of our facilities for infection control. We have increased cleaning and maintenance for a complete thorough wipe down of all facilities and common areas. The staff has been trained and instructed to perform continuous disinfection of surfaces and other areas where infection can be transmitted, i.e., doorknobs, light switches, etc.
- Provide all necessary PPEs and equipped additional sanitary supplies including soap, hand sanitizers, antimicrobial wipes, and disinfectant sprays.
- Posted informational signs on proper hand-washing techniques and hand sanitizing.
- Implemented mandatory training for employees on hand-washing and hand sanitization.
- Instituted screenings for visitors. Anyone deemed a possible risk to our clients or staff will not be allowed at the facility.
- An additional screening process for potential admissions includes questions about symptoms, recent illnesses, travel overseas, and family or friends who have symptoms or traveled abroad.
- Upon admission, All new clients will be provided FDA EUA approved COVID-19 antigen test, evaluated in person by our intake staff and have a physical screening by a medical professional within 24 hours to further reduce the possibility of the introduction of a virus into the treatment environment. We continue daily screenings for current clients to monitor their conditions closely.
- Developed specific health and safety protocols for any clients presenting with flu-like symptoms, including emergency isolation protocols.
- Temporarily postponed client outings (this includes outside meetings) – alternative & virtual options are being made available
We will continue to follow directives from the CDC for the next steps as to what precautions to take and how to evolve our treatment protocol. Our Clinical and Executive Teams are monitoring the situation closely and we are able to make necessary adjustments in real-time.
