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.

The Sanctuary at Sedona’s health and safety protocol in response to the COVID-19 include the following:
  • Upon arrival, all new clients will undergo a physical assessment and screening for COVID-19 by our medical team. All new clients must be cleared before being officially admitted into our program and facility.
  • All new admissions have an agreed health and safety discharge plan in place in the event they should develop common symptoms of COVID-19 and have a fever of 100.4. (Primary symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and/or shortness of breath—similar to other respiratory illnesses and the flu.)
  • Our staff is monitoring clients throughout the day. Any client who presents with COVID-19 symptoms and has a fever of 100.4 will be discharged as agreed upon and specified in their health and safety discharge plan.
  • All staff have their temperature taken upon arrival and are monitored throughout the day. Any staff who presents with COVID-19 like symptoms and has a fever of 100.4 will be sent home and not allowed back until medically cleared.
  • Extra sanitation and cleaning measures have been implemented throughout the facility.
  • Immune-boosting protocols are being added for all residents to strengthen their immune systems at this time.
    • The protocols were designed by our Functional Medicine doctor and include an anti-inflammatory diet, immune building supplement protocols, and mitochondrial upregulation protocols. (These treatments are not intended to treat COVID-19, rather they are designed to strengthen the immune system.)
  • Suspension of on-campus visitation and events.
  • All Food Handlers and Housekeeping Staff wear face masks and gloves at all times.
  • We honor the social distancing guidelines to the best of our ability and in consideration of the necessities of the therapy sessions, and have face masks available for clients and staff as requested.
Sincerely, Dean Taraborelli Founder, Administrator, Counselor
