What is telehealth addiction treatment?
Telehealth, sometimes referred to as telemedicine, makes use of various online technologies to connect counselors to outpatient clients in their homes. It's designed to make addiction treatment more accessible for individuals who for whatever reason cannot or choose not to participate in inpatient care.
Many outpatient treatment services can be provided via telehealth, including:
• One-on-one therapy
• Group therapy
• Addiction counseling
• Medication-assisted treatment
These services can be provided via video conferencing, telephone calls, or web-based assessments. This enables patients to receive the treatment they need in the privacy of their own homes via their mobile phones, tablets, or computers.
