The Raleigh House’s Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Raleigh House’s COVID-19 Precautions and Protocols

The Raleigh House is committed to the health and safety of all our clients and staff members. We are currently monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely, and are taking precautions in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations.

Our treatment and recovery approach is built upon high standards for our clients. With an 8-bed detoxification program and 14-bed residential program, we remain committed to smaller treatment settings that are personalized to the needs of each client, supporting health, wellness and recovery.

Cleanliness and hygiene protocols are in place for all staff and clients to create the safest possible space for everyone during recovery. Our other precautions during this time include the following:

  • A multidisciplinary team has been established to ensure best practices and to deploy all CDC recommendations
  • Screening protocols have been enhanced at all levels of admission
  • Visitation has been suspended to protect the health and safety of our clients
  • Additional infection control policies and procedures have been distributed and made visible in all treatment settings
  • Personal protective equipment is being utilized by all staff with direct patient care responsibilities
  • Our detoxification program has added features such as IV fluids and nutrition screening to supplement immune system recovery
  • We continue to monitor all updates from the CDC, DORA, WHO and Joint Commission
  • We remain in communication and collaboration with our local health department to receive important Denver community updates.

In addition, The Ranch, our detox and residential treatment wellness-lodge, has an on-site 24/7 nursing staff that monitors all clients throughout their recovery.

Should I Seek Addiction Treatment in the Wake of the Coronavirus?

If you’re struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction, it’s important that you still seek treatment immediately. We have taken the necessary precautions needed to continue providing high-quality addiction treatment that puts your safety and health first.

According to the CDC, the risk of alcohol poisoning or drug overdose outweigh the risks of contracting COVID-19. Those struggling with substance abuse and addiction tend to have weakened immune systems, which can make you more vulnerable to COVID-19.

Ways to Help Prevent Contracting the Virus

The number one way to avoid COVID-19 is to follow standard sanitary procedures. First and foremost, this means washing your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

Other best practices include:

  • Regularly disinfecting and cleaning countertops, doorknobs, workstations and any other surfaces that are touched often
  • Covering your mouth with your arm, elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoiding touching any part of your face, especially your mouth, nose and eyes
  • Using hand sanitizer often if you aren’t in a place where you can wash your hands
  • Distancing yourself from people showing COVID-19 symptoms
