As we all do our best to navigate the challenges that are being presented with COVID-19, Spokane Falls Recovery Center is taking necessary precautions to help contain and mitigate the spread of this virus. We have stayed diligent in our fact finding and are working by the hour to stay up to date on all the recommended changes that are being given by the President, the Governor, the Washington State Department of Health, The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Spokane Regional Health District. We are monitoring staff and the individuals we serve for signs and symptoms of the virus with the recommendation that anyone who is not feeling well, has a fever, cough, shortness of breath or has been in contact with anyone with these symptoms, to stay home and contact your providers office, local urgent care or other provider to discuss symptoms.
We are still actively admitting individuals into our programming. We understand that all individuals may not be able to come into the facility to participate in services they may need. With that in mind, Spokane Falls Recovery Center has implemented telehealth services for those individuals.
We understand the disease of addiction and how the stress brought on by the COVID-19 virus may trigger an individual to return to substance use or other negative coping skills. We want to remain available to individuals in need and continue to provide guidance with compassion in this stressful time. In complying with the guidelines that have been set regarding “social distancing”, Spokane Falls Recovery Center will keep our group sizes to 10 or less individuals, as well as paying attention to the six-foot distance recommendation for interactions. We will be suspending massage therapy and yoga services in order to comply with these guidelines. The staff at Spokane Falls Recovery Center will remain diligent in disinfecting our facility multiple times throughout the day to do our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Spokane Falls Recovery Center was founded on the belief that addicts CAN recover from this devastating disease. We believe in the miracle of recovery, because we are miracles of recovery. Spokane Falls Recovery Center will continue to stay up to date on all the latest developments and we will continue to be diligent in our efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 while providing substance use disorder services for those in need.
