The current environment under COVID-19 has made daily life more complicated than it was. Mayors, governors, and presidents are continually adding more quarantine measures, and newscasters are repeatedly stating the risks of catching this disease. As a result, leaving the house may not be appealing. However, if you still want to get treatment for an addiction or mental health disorder during this complicated time, we can help. At Crestview Recovery, we’re now offering a telehealth intensive outpatient treatment program for those who need it. In short, just because you can’t leave the house, doesn’t mean that you can’t get the help you need. 

What is a Telehealth Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program?a woman uses an ipad to enroll in a telehealth intensive outpatient treatment program

The term “telehealth” covers a variety of services that don’t require the patient to be in a room with the therapist or treatment specialist. This fairly new treatment method opens the door for more people to get help than ever before. You’re no longer limited to getting help from people in the community. Instead, anyone with a phone or an Internet connection can get treatment. We offer a range of different methods to attend a telehealth intensive outpatient treatment program, including:

  • Help over the phone: This is the original telehealth method. This program allows a person to call a treatment center for the help they need. It is an effective way of continuing your addiction treatment.
  • Video chats: We use a secure channel to video chat with our patients. This method allows you to use your computer to speak to an addiction specialist, even if you’re out of state. 
  • Texting: This treatment method is one that many people choose because they find it the most comfortable. You don’t have to stop what you’re doing to speak to someone. Additionally, it is easier to do if you’re in a public place. 
  • Apps: Many mobile apps are designed specifically to allow people like you to get in touch with a treatment specialist in a matter of minutes. This method may be useful in helping people who struggle with alcohol addiction.
  • Web-based treatment programs: These programs are available 24/7, as long as you are connected to the internet. They can help you stay on track in your recovery.
  • Virtual reality: This telehealth option is based on some of the newest technology. It builds on a computer-generated world that you can simulate around real-life scenarios. We can adapt this technology to virtually any situation, including addiction treatment.
