FAQ for COVID-19

How are you handling COVID-19? Are you screening?

Yes, we continue to be vigilant in protecting our staff, patients and visitors. If you (or any staff member) meets any of these criteria you will be asked to postpone your visit:

  • Traveled within the last 14 days to restricted countries?
    (View the updated list via the CDC)
  • Show signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection such as fever, cough or sore throat?
  • Had contact with someone with or under care for possible COVID-19?

Because COVID-19 primarily spreads through respiratory droplets people generally must be within six feet of someone who is contagious and come into contact with these droplets. We remain committed to “social distancing” in our housing, dining room, groups and other gathering spaces.

It may also be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Should I be tested for COVID-19 before I come?
Call your healthcare professional if you feel sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
Will I have to wear a mask?
Yes, you will need to wear a mask in most places on campus except when sleeping or when you are alone, outside, with no one less than 10 feet from you (such as for a smoke break or during a walk.)

FAQ for Patients and Families

You want to succeed after treatment – we know it is your goal – so it is imperative to your recovery that you do at least three things:

  • Continue with recommended treatment
  • Find and participate in a fellowship of your choosing
  • Identify and commit to a path towards recovery that will continually enhance your quality of life over time

Patients discharging from Hudson receive an individualized Discharge Plan. This includes a referral to the next appropriate level of care recommended by your counselor, mental health treatment coordination, housing options, as well as other sober resources that are available in the community.

Key components in the Discharge Plan include, but are not limited to:

  • Identifying 12-Step meetings in the community
  • Identifying a sponsor
  • Referrals to outpatient treatment
  • Building and maintaining relationships in recovery
  • Identifying stress and its impact as a relapse trigger
  • Finding a balance in mind, body, and spirit in recovery
  • Rediscovering boundaries in recovery
  • Addressing co-occurring issues such as medication management and/or marriage counseling, physical and medical needs

Counselors at Hudson work collaboratively with clinical and medical staff to begin aftercare planning soon after the patient arrives. Our long-standing relationship with Outpatient Programs locally and in our surrounding areas, specialized housing programs, and other treatment providers in the Mental Health and Substance-Use Disorder fields, allows us to help patients continue the effective work they started at Hudson Behavioral Health.
