COVID-19 PROGRAM UPDATE

Residential Admissions to a Precautionary Facility

During this pandemic, instead of organizing our adult residential campuses by client age, all adult clients admit to the precautionary floor of South Campus and then transition to the residential floor of South Campus or Rollins Campus.

On the day prior to the scheduled admission appointment, all patients must receive a COVID-19 rapid antigen test. Clients must schedule a test with a testing site in the community that provides same-day results.

If test results of the first antigen test are negative, the client should return home or to local accommodations directly from the testing site. The client should have no close physical contact with any other individuals, including individuals in the same household before departing for the admission appointment the following day.

Adult residential clients receive a history & physical exam within 48 hours of the day of admission. As part of the exam, a swab will be taken to be submitted for a COVID-19 PCR test.

While waiting for PCR test results and medical clearance, clients are assigned to the precautionary floor and must remain isolated in their private rooms until medically cleared.

While on the precautionary floor, meals and medications will be delivered to the client’s private room. With approval, clients may leave their room to spend scheduled time individually in the gardens. Clients participate in individual and group therapy sessions remotely via zoom online video conferencing while in their rooms.

Typically, clients may expect to leave the precautionary floor on the Monday or Tuesday following the admission day. To leave the precautionary floor, clients must be medically cleared. A negative PCR test is required for medical clearance. Note that Skyland Trail sends samples for PCR tests out to a third party lab for processing. Lab processing times, though typically 2 to 3 days, may vary and may affect the length of a client’s stay on the precautionary floor.

When a negative PCR test result is received AND at least 72 hours have passed since the history & physical exam without the client developing any symptoms, Skyland Trail will administer a third COVID-19 test: an on-site rapid antigen test. Results of the on-site rapid antigen test will be available within an hour.

If results from the on-site rapid antigen test are negative, the client may be cleared to transition to the residential floor at South Campus or directly to Rollins Campus, depending on bed availability. Note that Skyland Trail is unable to conduct the on-site rapid antigen test or transition clients to a residential room on Saturdays or Sundays.

Clients at Rollins Campus meet in person for groups and individual primary counselor sessions while practicing physical distancing. Individual psychiatry sessions take place through zoom. All residential clients at South Campus and Rollins Campus reside in private rooms with private bathrooms.

Clients on the residential floor of South Campus are transported to Rollins Campus to participate in treatment Monday through Friday and to participate in LEAP on Saturday and Saturday. Clients on the residential floor of South Campus may transition to Rollins Campus as rooms become available.

*Clients who are traveling to Atlanta by plane must arrive in Atlanta, then quarantine in a hotel (or other local accommodations) for four days before the day of admission.

Preparing for Life After Treatment

The support and services we provide at Skyland Trail South give clients the opportunity to build their capacity, strength and confidence to begin working toward recovery.

We help our clients take steps toward normalizing their daily routine and improving daily living skills. To restore healthy sleep patterns, we set expectations for lights out and wake up times.  We also set expectations for personal hygiene and cleanliness of personal and community areas. A licensed nurse is onsite 24/7, and our staff administers medications.

Clients are served continental breakfast. Evening and weekend meals are prepared onsite by our dining services staff. Precautionary clients may order lunch from local restaurants. Residential clients at South eat lunch at Rollins Campus.
