Residential Treatment Facilities and Providers are facing unique challenges while navigating the surge in care demands throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. While this service is critical to patients in need, Residential Treatment Facilities and Providers are juggling treatment for behavioral health and substance use disorders, staffing shortages due to outbreaks, and a lack or shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In order to provide care while ensuring the health and safety of their residents and staff, behavioral health residential facilities need more support and resources to effectively serve those in need.
Join us for our first Office Hour session focused on Residential Treatment Services. We’ll discuss the strengths, challenges and opportunities for equipping residential treatment staff to safely and effectively care for residents during the COVID-19 response. We invite you to join the conversation and share with your innovative approaches to care at this time-
• How are you navigating the emerging challenges within residential treatment facilities during the pandemic i.e. PPE, staffing, quarantine?
• What strategies are you using to safely care for residents?
• How can we advocate or support you and residential treatment staff to safely and effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic?
