Especially in such difficult times, CoveCare Center is here for you. We are committed to your health, your wellness and your recovery journey now more than ever.

We are working hard to ensure that our team is available to our clients and the community even as we are all working at the new “normal” of social distancing. We have implemented telephone sessions to allow people to stay in the safety of their homes while still receiving the support they expect from us. We hope to add video conferencing in the days or weeks ahead as the public health scenario develops. You will hear from us regarding scheduled appointments, and you are welcome to reach out if you haven’t heard from us regarding upcoming appointments.

We are subject from state guidance for how we can operate, and up to this point New York has offered us great flexibility in how we can serve you. We anticipate that things will change as time goes by, and we will do our best to communicate with you regarding those changes.

Circumstances like what is happening in our community can elevate fear, anxiety, and depression. So, we ask that you do not treat social distancing as self-isolation. It is essential that we all take care of our emotional health and our physical health at times like this. Make sure to reach out to loved ones, friends and family in all ways possible. A quick chat and some social connection are worth so much, especially when times are difficult. If you need CoveCare, we are a phone call away. Your provider will connect with you as soon as possible.

If you feel that you are in a state of crisis, please call us, whether during or after hours. We do not advise you to come to the office in such a situation; we can support you remotely so there is no need to put yourself at risk.

As this situation continues to unfold, we will communicate with you regarding any changes to our operations.

Best of health to all of you.

Eric A. Toth, CEO, CoveCare Center
