Discovery Institute has implemented several new policies to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, and their families. We are still accepting new clients and all programs will continue to operate as they normally would, except for outside activities. We will proceed with extreme caution during this time of increased risk and continue to update our protocols based on the CDC standards. Our number one priority is to stay in unity and continue to help individuals find long term recovery from substance use disorder.

  • Family may drop off items, those items will be collected wearing gloves and stored for 24 hours before given to clients.
  • Family therapy sessions will be done by phone or telehealth.

Outpatient Services

  • We are providing telehealth for all outpatient services.

  • All staff and clients who enter and exit the building will have their temperature read by touchless infrared thermometers. 
  • Clients will not attend outside meetings, nor will outside presenters be allowed to bring in meetings.
  • Any outside urgent appointments for clients must be approved by the Medical and Clinical Director.
  • Clients will be rescreened upon re-entering the facility.
