COVID-19 Precautions at Hillside
Hillside is committed to prioritizing safety for our clients, their families, and our employees. Using the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and the Georgia Department of Public Health, Hillside leaders implement program changes, infection control procedures, staffing and clinical care processes for our clients.
Below is an outline of some of the safety practices in place at Hillside. If your family is currently in our program and you have additional questions, please reach out to your family therapist or program manager. If you are a prospective client or prospective client’s family, please reach out to Admissions Department with your questions.
Residential and Day Treatment Actions
Clients entering our residential treatment or day program are required to be fully vaccinated prior to admission. Your admission coordinator will confirm this requirement during the pre-admission process.
All employees working in client facing roles or performing job duties on the Hillside campus are required to be vaccinated against COVID.
All new clients in the residential and day programs are COVID tested upon admission.
Masks are optional for all employees and clients. If a residential client tests positive after admission they will be required to quarantine on campus and wear a mask for seven days. If a Day Program client tests positive after admission they will be asked to quarantine at home. The length of time for quarantine should be confirmed with the program staff.
Community Based Program Actions
In-person services are offered as well as telehealth sessions via Zoom.
Tours and Visitors
A virtual tour is available on our website. If you would like an in person tour, please arrange this with someone in the Admissions Department.
Due to the recent decrease in the community infection rate, Family Visitation and Therapeutic Home Passes have resumed for current clients in our residential treatment program. However, if the rate of infection in the community were to increase, Family Visitation and Therapeutic Home Passes may be cancelled or put back on hold.
