As communities begin to see a resurge in COVID-19 cases, we want to remind you of Averhealth’s COVID-19 Action Plan and how important patient safety and well-being is to us. Averhealth remains focused on helping our clients achieve recovery, as well as the health of our participants and staff. We will continue to make decisions informed by science that support our mission of reclaiming lives, uniting families, and strengthening communities.
Averhealth has taken a number of steps to help prevent infections and avoid care disruptions. We have taken precautionary steps that include increased cleaning and sanitizing of our patient care centers and ensuring our team follows sound hygiene practices, such as increased hand washing. We are also increasing supply levels to mitigate potential supply chain disruptions.
Our patient care centers across the U.S continue to operate and our doors remain open. Averhealth provides an essential health benefit that is even more critical in the current high stress environment across all of our communities. Essential Critical Infrastructure and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provides guidance to ensure that substance use disorder treatment services are uninterrupted during this public health emergency – a duty we will strive to fulfill.
Today, more than ever, your clients deserve evidence-based practices that are delivered in a manner designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Since 1995, Averhealth has delivered the highest quality care and continues to do so in this difficult period. Our COVID -19 safety protocols allow us to continue the use of evidence-based practices proven to help clients develop coping and refusal skills to new drug and alcohol use events. Practices that include daily notification, random selection, directly observed collections, and at least two (2) tests per week have proven to help interrupt the behavior chain by stopping new use cravings.
We believe that in times like this, it is more important than ever to adhere to evidence-based practices proven to position clients for success. Averhealth is focused on our mission of reclaiming lives, uniting families, and strengthening communities.
We appreciate all that our partners, employees, and clients are doing. Everyone has come together to limit the spread of this virus during this uncertain – but temporary – time. Please take care of your families, your clients, and yourselves. Thank you for your trust in us. We’re in this together, so let us know if there’s anything we can do to help.
