CADAS takes the health and safety of our patients, families, visitors and staff very seriously. The COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation is rapidly evolving. CADAS’s Leadership Team is closely monitoring updates issued by the CDC and the Tennessee Department of Health.
We are committed to serving individuals, families and communities affected by addiction/substance use disorder as we continue to monitor and respond to emerging situations as the pandemic evolved.
In accordance with CDC and TN DOH recommendations we have taken the following measures to date:

  • Ensure the highest level of infection prevention and control, sanitation and hygiene and will continue to follow the CDC’s and DOH’s infection control guidelines
  • Screen visitors for symptoms of a respiratory infection, international travel and exposure to Persons Under Investigation (PUIs) or someone with a known case of COVID-19
  • Continue to monitor the health of our patients
  • Ask staff with a reported illness to stay home and provide medical clearance before returning to work
  • Are reducing on-site public events and off-site patient activities to reduce exposure risk. Visitation, Family Day and 12-Step Meetings at CADAS have been cancelled until further notice.

Ionization

CADAS continues to take steps in making sure its clients and staff are safe. Through iWave Advantage, CADAS has implemented “Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization” at 81 points of contact throughout our HVAC systems. The GPS device system uses an electronic charge to create a high concentration of positive and negative ions.

These artificially generated ions are drawn to airborne particles by their electrical charge thus binding and creating a larger particle which increases the filtration effectiveness. This system can have up to 89.7% particle count reduction throughout our HVAC system.
In the fight against COVID-19, CADAS has implemented this system to impact particle reduction and pathogen control thus providing an extra level of protection. In using the iWave Advantage system, the elimination of harmful airborne particles and pathogens has shown to be a high as 99% in recent studies.

Pathogens like COVID-19 are attracted to the positively charged hydrogen atoms from the cell structure. Over time this hydrogen depletion breaks down the RNA/DNA of the pathogen rendering it inert. This system is very effective towards reducing the spread of airborne pathogens which also include bacteria, viruses and fungi.

CADAS is one of many Healthcare Organizations across the Country that has implemented this technology in it fight against COVID-19 and other harmful pathogens. We continue adhere to all CDC guidelines as we continue to provide a safe environment for our clients and staff.
