Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Northridge Addiction Treatment Center takes the health and safety of our residents and staff very seriously. We are staying informed with the evolving information around COVID-19 and following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations to help stop the spread of illness in our facility. We have also implemented strong safeguards to protect our residents and staff. Residents will be tested upon arrival and subject to quarantine if exhibiting any sign or symptom. We have increased the cleaning frequency in our common areas, regularly touched surfaces, and deep cleaning of bedrooms.
We ask staff and residents to wear a protective mask except when eating, sleeping, or alone, wash hands regularly, practice social distancing, avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth, and avoid contact with people exhibiting any sickness symptoms. Our goal is to keep our residents, their families, and loved ones, and our staff safe and informed.
