COVID-19 UPDATE: July 22, 2021
Valley Hope continues to take precautions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, working with public health officials, our staff, our communities and our partners to ensure our facilities are safe and remain open to new patients.
Based on updated guidance, the following processes have been updated to align with recent successes in the fight against COVID-19:
New patients will continue to be monitored during their medical detoxification in the facility’s recovery area for the first 24 hours of their stay.
In addition to monitoring for withdrawal symptoms, patients will be monitored for signs of illness and introduced to Valley Hope’s policies of mask wearing and distancing that comply with the CDC’s recommendations for health care facilities.
Patients are required to stay on campus except for essential activities. Examples of these are certain health care appointments, legal obligations, and sober living interviews.
Valley Hope facilities remain closed to social visitors.
Therapeutic family sessions have resumed at Valley Hope facilities. Family care is often recommended for the loved ones and family members of our patients.
Alumni and Friends
Off-campus community-based alumni events have resumed and we continue to host virtual peer support meetings bi-monthly. See our events calendar for more details.
