BHG Coronavirus Update
Last updated November 4, 2020
At BHG, our patients’ health has always been our top priority.
We are continuing to put the safety of our patients and staff first and can assure you that we are proactively complying with every CDC-issued recommendation, from disinfection methods to procedures that dramatically limit the number of individuals going into our centers.
The measures we have put in place are as follows:
- Counseling is now done via in-person and tele-counseling (where physical distancing guidelines can be met and as states permit). Please contact your local BHG center for details.
- Parameters for take-home privileges may be temporarily expanded. For some patients, this could mean additional take-home medications for those that they are currently receiving. The specific amount of medication we can send home with patients varies under state laws and regulations and is dependent on each patient’s individual treatment plan and stage of recovery.
- Anyone who has a known exposure to COVID-19, or is experiencing symptoms, or who has tested positive for COVID-19, are asked to phone the treatment center before arrival, and then stay in their vehicle to receive their medications. Staff are stationed at the door of each center to help screen all individuals entering the facility.
- We’re requiring all persons (patients, staff, and visitors) entering BHG facilities to practice physical distancing and wear personal protective equipment like masks and gloves. Additionally, we’re thoroughly disinfecting our centers throughout the day.
We continue to find ourselves in an unprecedented time as we come together to fight two public health crises simultaneously — an opioid epidemic and the global coronavirus pandemic — and we will continue to ensure that every effort we make is done to strengthen and improve the lives and communities of those we serve.
