For 22 years as a leading addiction treatment center in the United States, Mountainside has worked to promote health and wellness among clients and staff. During this outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we remain committed to safeguarding the well-being of all in our facilities. Please be aware that we are taking the following safety precautions in response to recent concerns and events:
• Strengthening sanitation measures throughout our facilities with frequent sanitizing of workstations, computers, and phones in common work areas.
• Advising staff and visitors to prioritize their health and refrain from entering our facilities if they have exhibited fever symptoms.
• Empowering our clients and staff to stay informed regarding best practices in preventing the virus’s spread, including frequent hand-washing, frequent reminders to avoid touching your face, and more. See the CDC's full list of Prevention Measures.
• For staff, putting official protocol in place for overall sanitation and prevention measures (as mentioned above), as well as instructions for reporting of symptoms and travel.
Please be advised that in order to continue to provide a safe and therapeutic atmosphere for all who walk through our doors, visitation policies may be impacted in light of new developments regarding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We'll provide updates to that effect here with recent updates at the top.
