After a three-month interruption of on-site client care due to the coronavirus, High Point very much looks forward to reacclimating clients back into our community. The initial phase of reentry, to begin on July 6, will be carefully structured to support quality care of our substance use clients, offering PC, IOP and outpatient clinical services. Our program is strategically designed to accommodate our clients’ needs, both on-site as well as with tele-health supports, as necessary. Clinical services will encompass individual, group and continued psychiatric and medication monitoring supports. High Point remains committed to client and staff well-being, with cautionary standards intact to help reintegrate our clients back into the High Point community.
At this time, High Point Partial Care Mental Health clientele will continue receiving daily case management, wellness checks psychiatric monitoring to promote their mental health stabilization. These case management tele-health contacts help tremendously towards managing clients’ treatment need as well as provide direct guidance to assiste them with posting coping mechanisms during this challenging time.
For the returning clients, High Point will resume providing transportation assistance to clients in need. High Point is abiding by CDC guidelines and New Jersey State/Governor’s mandates, which include but are not limited to the use of masks, practicing six-feet social distancing, and maintaining daily sanitary and disinfection standards throughout the day.
Anytime a client or visitor enters the High Point building, a Covid-19 questionnaire and temperature check will be required. Additionally, staff and clients are undergoing Covid-19 testing to ensure negative results to ensure safe transition back to program. Any staff or clients who conveys that they feel ill will be – as under normal circumstances – encouraged to stay home and seek medical guidance. Tele-health services are being maintained in addition to on-site supports to assist with clinical needs, especially given concerns surrounding overall health and wellness.
During these last three months of providing tele-health supports, staff and clients alike have expressed eagerness to promote positive transitioning to the return of on-site programming. The therapeutic and human connections that exist at High Pont is extraordinary component that bring our community together towards effecting change and achieving our clients’ treatment plan goals. High Point will remain vigilant, closely monitoring our clients’ transition back in order to deliver the outstanding care for which we are known.
