Adapt, provider of integrated addiction treatment, mental health care, and primary care in Southern Oregon, has remained open at all locations with all services available during the COVID-19 public health emergency. During this time, Adapt (including Opioid Treatment Programs), Compass Behavioral Health, and SouthRiver Community Health Center, have used additional screening measures and safeguards for in- person visits and expanded phone/telehealth services to ensure safe and accessible care. 

Adapt is monitoring and adjusting safeguards as updated information and recommendations are released by local, state, and federal authorities. Safety measures are reviewed against the anticipated reopening of some businesses in Oregon and federal phased re-opening guidance. 

To slow the spread of the virus, the CDC advises the use of a cloth face covering when one leaves their homes, regardless of fever or COVID-19 symptoms. Effective Monday May 11, Adapt will require facial coverings for all staff, patients, and visitors entering its buildings. The additional safety measure will apply to all Adapt, Compass Behavioral Health, and SouthRiver locations in Douglas, Coos and Josephine counties. 

“We have been incredibly fortunate in Southern Oregon not to have the number of cases seen in some parts of the country. We expect that there will be a resurgence in some places as our economy reopens,” said Jerry O’Sullivan, Adapt Senior Director of Operations. “If there is an uptick in cases in our community, we want to make sure our employees and patients are protected. Individuals visiting Adapt may bring their own face covering or receive one at Adapt’s outpatient screening stations. 

Screening and social distancing measures based on CDC guidelines are in place at all locations to ensure the safety of patients, caregivers, and staff. Patients and visitors will still be asked appropriate screening questions and have their temperature taken. Patients feeling sick are asked to call before coming in.
