As we all know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has been changing almost on a daily basis and if you're like us, you've been keeping up with the new information as it comes out.
We are continuing to admit patients with increased precautions and will continue to do so until further notice. There are often serious health risks associated with not entering into treatment at Yellowbrick for our patients.
Yellowbrick has the capacity to contain an individual who develops symptoms, separating them from the rest of the community until medical guidance determines further actions.
Yellowbrick has the capacity to shift to video teleconferencing for individual and group treatments as necessary.
From the CDC as well as the Illinois Department of Health, key government, regulatory, and local entities for the latest information and guidelines. As a treatment center, we already follow incredibly strict health and safety guidelines including frequent sanitation and medical infection control procedures. We want to keep everyone updated and aware of how we are continuously working to keep up with the changing guidelines as they come out. Our goal is to continue to provide the best care for our clients and staff in the safest way possible.
At Yellowbrick, we take the safety of our patients, families and staff very seriously. With that in mind, we cancelled PAP Weekend (3/13-15), and may cancel the next one (4/10-12) depending on the situation at the time. Regarding the cancellations, we had Dr. Jessup as Director of Family Services & Systems contact any families that were planning on attending to explain the situation and offer support.
At Yellowbrick, emerging adults find their way home.
If you or someone you know could benefit from the community-based treatment programs available at Yellowbrick, please contact Yellowbrick today at 847-869-1500.
