How We Are Responding to COVID-19

The Sanctuary at Sedona’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Response Policy

Arizona is on a stay-at-home order, which took effect March 31st, except for essential businesses and those who work for essential businesses. Addiction Treatment Centers are listed as an essential business.

The Sanctuary at Sedona is an essential business and will remain open until otherwise instructed not to do so.

We are fortunate that The Sanctuary is small and secluded. We have a client population of 10, are located on 22 acres surrounded by national forest, and the majority of our practitioners live and work on the Sanctuary campus, thus limiting possible external exposure concerns.

As new information becomes available all safety measures to be taken, we are absolutely committed to the health and well-being of our staff, clients and community and will respond by updating this policy as needed.

We are daily monitoring information and implementing recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, The National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, state and local public health authorities, as well as from our Clinical Director, Doctors and Nurses.
