Doing drugs is never good for your body. But now, during the time of the COVID-19 outbreak, it could put you even more at risk. That’s why the coronavirus crisis could be the best time for you to get clean and sober.
Doctors have found that people who smoke marijuana, vape, and smoke meth, heroin, or other drugs, are especially susceptible to getting a serious case.
There’s more than one reason why. First, doing drugs gives you a weaker immune system in general. Your body is pretty beat down, and it’s likely that you’re not exactly running on a perfect sleep schedule and nutritious, organic diet.
Second, the COVID-19 coronavirus specifically attacks the lungs. If yours are weakened by the effects of chemical substances, they could be less ready to fight back against the virus’s attack. Snorting drugs like cocaine can put your respiratory system at further risk.
Since we’re all facing a stay-at-home order in California, there’s no better time to protect yourself and get safe for the long-term than by entering detox and residential treatment.
At Transformations Care, we have serious protocols in place to make sure that everyone who comes to our facility is kept safe from potential COVID-19 transmissions. We do temperature checks at the door, have all patients screened by our doctor, and even take patients to the ER for official sign-off if needed.
That’s all on top of our normal clinical detox and residential treatment programs. Plus, we have TVs and Xboxes in each room if you need to get your mind off of what’s going on in the world during treatment.
Will you use this time to change your life, or to spiral deeper into the hole of addiction? The choice is yours. If you’re ready to choose a different path, we’re ready to help. Contact us today.

Getting Clean & Sober at Home
Today, more than 75% of hospitals and healthcare providers offer access to telehealth treatment, with 29 states having gone so far as to enact telehealth parity laws, which force insurance companies to reimburse patients for telehealth at the same rates as they would for in-person treatment.
If you’ve been thinking about getting clean and sober, or if you’ve been wanting to work on and strengthen the recovery you already have, it’s never been easier to do it through telehealth.
