COVID-19 and Your Health

At Revolution, our patients' health is our top priority, and Telehealth support is now available! We want you to know that within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of alcohol and other substances can affect the general health of the body, leading to potential outcomes like sleeping less, and a weakened immune system. Self-medication and substance use can already be problematic for many people in everyday life as they typically appear as quick-fix solutions that may help with anxiety or depression in the short term, but ultimately lead to further issues and instability. Marijuana and other inhaled substances including cigarettes and e-cigarettes, or vaping devices can be acutely dangerous because of the stress they place on the pulmonary system. We are here to support you to address any concerns that you may have during this challenging time. Please contact us at 425-243-5773 to speak with our dedicated team of professionals about any concerns you may have…

Developing positive ways of coping with the stress from the Coronavirus outbreak is essential to maintaining your health and wellness goals. Creating a routine that suits your unique personality and interests can be helpful in preventing feelings of boredom or isolation while protecting yourself by following best hygiene practices and social distancing rules. Meditation, yoga, spending time with pets, music, reading, blogging and connecting with friends and family through social media and Facetime are examples of some ways to channel your creativity, and discover new ways to enjoy a sense of purpose and joy while being mindful about the safety of yourself and those around you. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus2019/advice-for-public
