Coronavirus and Drug Addiction

Coronavirus and drug addiction is a serious topic at present. You may be concerned that your addicted loved one is at risk of contracting the deadly virus. The reason for this is that people who are abusing drugs usually have underlying health conditions, such as:

  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Heart or lung Disease

NA and AA meetings may also be closed and there is no support during a time they may need it most. People who are suffering from the disease of addiction are fearful by nature and this is a trigger that could result in relapse.

Dr. Daniel Solomon, an infectious disease physician at Brigham Health Bridge Clinic stated that:

“We know they are particularly vulnerable. What can be disruptive to us can be devastating to them”

Are Rehabs High-Risk Areas?

South Africa is at present riddled with fear of the coronavirus and many would want to avoid rehab. The good news is that the CDC is managing the spread of the disease while drug overdoses remain and always will. Alcohol and drugs kill more people daily than most diseases. This is why ARCA has made sure they have all the necessary procedures in place to eliminate the risk of Coronavirus.

Abusing drugs has a huge impact on your health. An addicted person will have a weakened immune system. This is why drug addiction treatment is the best way to reduce your risk of contracting the virus and spreading it. You could choose an inpatient or outpatient rehab. ARCA is a safe and medically sterile environment for patients who are going through withdrawal and require detox. Coronavirus and drug addiction is nothing to take lightly – get help today!
