 Do you allow smoking and pets in the residential home?

Smoking and pets are not allowed within the residential homes operated by Joseph Rehabilitation Center. Smoking is allowed in designated areas outside the residential homes. This policy is designed to protect the safety, privacy and health of all its consumers. The organization considers the policy necessary because of the following reasons:

*      Smoking is a known fire hazard.  

*      Smoking is also scientifically documented to be injuries to health, both direct and second hand smoke.  

*      Many individuals are allergic to smoking.  

*      Many individuals are allergic to fur and pets in general.
