When we began this year, no one had any idea that a pandemic would interrupt so much of our lives. Centered Recovery swapped to a fully Virtual IOP program on March 11, 2020, and for the last eleven weeks has provided hundreds of hours of mindfulness-based recovery education and individual sessions for our clients. Clients and prospective clients have been asking: When will Centered resume in-person groups?
Georgia Opens, Centered Resumes in-person
Now, with much of Georgia beginning to open back up and some clients desiring the connection of an in-person session, we have made the decision to offer limited services in person at both our Roswell and Marietta locations. We understand that everyone has different needs for their own personal recovery journey, and some wish to physically participate in our unique groups while others still desire the safety and security of virtual sessions from home. When we began offering virtual sessions back in January 2019, we had no idea how useful our virtual program would be! We are ecstatic to be able to offer our clients both in-person and virtual sessions at this time. Clients of Centered may choose to attend in person up to five times a week, remain involved virtually, or choose a combination of in-person and virtual sessions.
As Centered resumes in-person sessions, we have taken every precaution we can think of to help make our facility safe and clean for both our clients and our amazing staff. However, no precautions are fool proof! Please take care to follow CDC guidelines to ensure your own personal safety and that of your family and friends. Here are a few tips from the CDC on hand hygiene:
- CDC recommends using ABHR with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol in healthcare settings. Unless hands are visibly soiled, an alcohol-based hand rub is preferred over soap and water in most clinical situations due to evidence of better compliance compared to soap and water. Hand rubs are generally less irritating to hands and are effective in the absence of a sink. 
- Hands should be washed with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when visibly soiled, before eating, and after using the restroom. Learn more about hand hygiene in healthcare settings.
Hope to see you soon!
