Clean Recovery Centers Now Testing all Clients and Employees for COVID-19 and Antibody to Minimize Risk of Exposure

Tampa, FL, May 20, 2020 – As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a risk to the Tampa Bay community, Clean Recovery Centers has implemented new testing protocols, increasing its effort to minimize exposure to employees and clients.

With the assistance of Ammon Labs, all clients, employees, and contractors of Clean Recovery Centers will be tested for COVID-19 and IgG Antibody prior to admission/care. The new COVID-19 Antibody IgG test is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay used for the qualitative detection of IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2.

Ammon Labs is committed to running their toxicology and blood Lab 24/7 while they continue to provide screening testing results within 9 hours and confirmation results within 25 hours. These timely results will allow clients in dire need of detoxification to be admitted to the facility as quickly as possible.

“We are following CDC guidelines as we continuously expand our efforts to minimize risk within our facilities and community,” said CEO Shayne Sundholm. “These tests are another layer of confidence that we are doing as much as we can to fight this pandemic.”

Clean Recovery Centers COVID-19 Policies and Procedures continue to expand as new learnings and technologies are known. The addition of blanket testing will provide peace-of-mind to clients who are already suffering from anxiety that often accompanies addiction.

Clean Recovery Centers Offers COVID-19 Testing for Clients

Tampa, FL, March 26, 2020 — As part of its ongoing efforts to help combat the COVID-19 virus, Clean Recovery Centers now offers testing for its clients and staff who may be at high risk or symptomatic. “It’s an additional precaution, should it be needed, to help ensure that existing and newly admitted clients and staff are safe,” said CEO Shayne Sundholm. “It is comforting to know we at least have access to these tests. Our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures precludes any new or existing client or staff member from entering any Clean Recovery Centers facilities or residences should they show any signs, symptoms, or have had possible exposure to COVID-19. That said, should the need arise for whatever circumstance, we do have the ability to test. Of course, whatever option has the fastest turnaround time in terms of results will be utilized, whether that is here or at local testing facilities,” he added.

Those wanting to admit into our center who answer affirmatively to the prescreening questions regarding COVID-19 symptoms and criteria will not be permitted into our facilities or residences until such time as it is certain that they are negative for COVID-19. These people will be offered telemedicine services. Any existing client or staff member that our medical team determines should be tested, will not be permitted into our facilities again until such time as we know that the test is negative for COVID-19.


New Medical Detox and Addiction Residential Treatment Opens in the Tampa Bay Area

Tampa, FL, March 3, 2020 — Clean Recovery Centers, an innovator in the treatment of addiction, announces the opening of its second location to battle the ongoing epidemic of substance use disorder (SUD). The new facility, located in New Port Richey, specializes in Medical Detox and Residential Treatment for those struggling with a drug or alcohol dependence.

Detox services typically provide an initial period during recovery where individuals focus on overcoming their physical dependence on alcohol or drugs. It’s a crucial part of treatment and recovery.

“This is a big step forward for the treatment of substance abuse and for our work at Clean Recovery Centers,” said Shayne Sundholm, CEO. He noted that, “There is a need for more detox facilities in the Tampa Bay area and we are proud to offer the addition of this facility.”



Tampa, FL, September 1, 2019 – Clean Recovery Centers is throwing down the gauntlet – challenging anyone and everyone to “Give It Up” for 30 days during Recovery Month in September. While the focus is on drugs and alcohol, any addiction is in play – smoking, shopping, chocolate, gossiping, golf, soda and more . . .  anything that has you in a tight, tough-to-break grip.

“At Clean Recovery Centers we know how tough it is for our clients to give up drugs and alcohol but that is the absolute key to recovery for those suffering from addiction,” said Clean Recovery Centers’ CEO Shayne Sundholm. “During September we encourage you to give up whatever you’re addicted to – it’s not easy.”

Here’s how the Oxford American Thesaurus lists Addiction: dependency, craving, devotion, obsession, dedication, enslavement, habit.

Take your pick – the noose of addiction is a tight one. But Recovery Month celebrates the fact that many addicts work hard and get well. Can you kick the habit?

Are you up to the 30-day challenge? Visit www.cleanrecoverycenters.com/giveitup to commit to your 30 days.

Tampa, FL, August 27, 2019 – Clean Recovery Centers is pleased to announce that they are now In-Network with Cigna, Beacon and First Health. “This is very important for our treatment business and for the clients we serve,” said Shayne Sundholm, CEO of Clean Recovery Centers. “Going in-network makes it easier for clients with these insurance policies to be admitted to our Center, and it saves them a significant amount of money.”

Sundholm added that Clean Recovery is working hard to get in-network with numerous other providers. Currently, the treatment facility accepts almost all insurance policies out-of-network.  

Clean Recovery Centers is Joint Commission Accredited and Legitscript approved and offers Day/Night Treatment with Community Housing (PHP), Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient levels of care. All services are delivered in a clinically and medically phased approach geared towards permanent recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.

“Very soon, we anticipate adding a residential level of care for mental health,” Sundholm said. “Our clinical and medical program is very powerful and highly unique. We consider it best-in-class. The program combines leading edge Western and Eastern holistic approaches.”

Clean follows a Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) model that includes vocational, educational and post care planning for clients. Therapeutic leisure activities included yoga, physio, massage, a gym and games room plus a beach and other fun and helpful activities.

The 10,000 square foot treatment center is state-of-the art and includes yoga and physio areas, a Zen room and a therapeutic games room. The Level IV FARR certified community and transitional living accommodations are clean, comfortable, well adorned and monitored 24/7 via CCTV and BHTs.

“We also feature an Alumni Program and a Client Sobriety App for ongoing care and support post-treatment,” Sundholm noted.
