Avoid the Coronavirus with Rehab

Avoid the Coronavirus with Rehab

The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is an unprecedented epidemic that started in China but has spread around the world.

With the coronavirus in the United States now, people are being more cautious than ever and are practicing social distancing, which has become the new trend.

At Banyan Treatment Centers, we are taking this threat seriously and have even begun a coronavirus protocol for rehab. While many people are concerned about contracting coronavirus, you may be able to avoid COVID-19 with rehab.

How to Avoid Coronavirus with Rehab

While many people are trying to stay in more and avoid crowded public places, human contact may be unavoidable with complete quarantine. If you aren’t working remotely or you need to run to the store, you could be at risk of getting the coronavirus. Although many people are too preoccupied with the virus to think about much else, you may be able to protect yourself from coronavirus with rehab for several reasons.

Controlled Environment

You may be able to avoid the coronavirus with rehab because rehab offers a more controlled environment. Residential treatment especially creates less contact with the outside world. Because of this separation, rehab may be able to lower your risk of getting COVID-19. Rehab also offers a hospital-like setting with medical personnel on staff to monitor any issues and provide patients with immediate attention. Also, at all of our nationwide drug rehabs, we are doing coronavirus screening before admittance into our programs to ensure that our current patients remain safe.


Events, concert, and sporting events have been canceled or postponed. With restaurants and bars closing early, people are being forced to stay in. The world is mostly at a standstill, so now may be the perfect time to avoid the coronavirus with rehab. Not only are you mostly separated from the outside world with inpatient treatment, but you also have nothing to miss out on. Instead of being locked inside struggling with withdrawal alone, take this free time to do something that will change your life for the better for good.

Poor Health

If you have been a drug addict or an alcoholic for a long time, chances are your health is suffering because of it. Because the coronavirus tends to be more severe for those with existing health problems, your addiction could be putting you at risk. The sooner you get sober, the sooner your health may improve.

Addiction Increases Risk of Exposure

Not only is drug abuse a risky endeavor normally for your physical and mental health, but also, trying to fuel your addiction can put you at a higher risk of contracting coronavirus. Whether you are getting your drugs off the street from a drug dealer or doctor shopping, you are putting yourself in contact with more people than you need to. Not to mention the fact that the drugs themselves have been circulating and may have come in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Dirty needles are no longer just problematic for HIV. Even just touching the needles of someone with coronavirus could cause you to get sick.

While everyone may be preoccupied with the coronavirus, the time is now to go into rehab. If you are interested in learning more about our facilities and our programs, do not wait to call us today at 888-280-4763.
