Cell Phone Use Policy
Cell phones have become essential tools that connect us to the world, providing access to news, entertainment, social media, and keeping us connected to business, friends, and family. While the benefits of cell phone usage are evident, recent studies have also highlighted the potential risks associated with overuse, particularly concerning physical and mental wellbeing.
Research indicates that excessive cell phone usage, especially during the night, can lead to sleep disturbances, physical ill-health symptoms, and exhaustion. Additionally, evidence suggests that cell phone dependence may negatively impact lifestyle, affecting dietary habits, daily routines, resulting in more sedentary times, less physical activity, and obesity.
Anna Lembke, a psychiatry professor at Stanford and author of Dopamine Nation, emphasized that "phones are engineered to be addictive," contributing to compulsive use and potential negative consequences. However, recent studies have also explored the positive aspects of smartphone interventions in supporting recovery from chronic diseases and addiction.
At Visit Recovery Center, we recognize the importance of a balanced approach to cell phone and computer use during treatment. We understand that individuals in treatment need to stay connected to the world, their loved ones, and their careers. However, we also acknowledge that cell phones can be a distraction to treatment, and overuse may negatively impact treatment success.
To address these considerations, we have developed a user-friendly cell phone use policy:
72-hour Blackout Period.
Clients entering residential treatment will experience a 72-hour blackout period.
Phone access during this period will only be granted with supervising staff for treatment-related business, including medical appointments via telehealth.
Daily Access Hours.
After the 72-hour blackout period, clients will have daily access to their phones. Phone access will be allowed during the time periods of 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
This policy is designed to strike a balance between maintaining connectivity and ensuring a focused and effective treatment environment. We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to your recovery journey.
Visit Health Recovery is a safe space where you can be your authentic self without fear of judgment. Your identity is respected, and your privacy is paramount.

People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer are at an increased risk of substance use due to many social stressors that heterosexual individuals do not experience.
According to a recent report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration:
Gay and bisexual males and females were 2 to 3 times more likely than straight people to use illicit drugs other than marijuana.
About one third of bisexual females, bisexual males, and gay males had a substance use disorder (SUD) in the past year.
Bisexual females were three times more likely than straight females to have had an opioid use disorder in the past year.
We embrace individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions. Everyone is welcome here.
Our team is dedicated to fostering an environment where everyone feels heard, respected, and supported throughout their recovery journey.
