The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the practice of telehealth to the forefront of medical and mental health treatment. Telehealth, while not a new approach, has allowed American’s access to essential and routine medical treatment while the COVID-19 pandemic has forced limited or no access to clinics, hospitals, and treatment centers.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth, sometimes referred to as telemedicine or virtual medicine uses electronic means (such as zoom or other telecommunication methods) to seek and receive care when you and your doctor are not or cannot be in the same place at the same time. All you need to participate in a telehealth appointment with your addiction treatment provider at Relevance Recovery is a device such as a phone, computer, or iPad with internet access. Many are surprised at the wide range of care one can receive through telehealth.

Can Telehealth for Addiction Help Me?

There are many benefits to telehealth, and telehealth is growing significantly in popularity. Spurred by the ongoing need for medical treatment while social distancing remains crucial to community health, telemedicine allows patients to receive access to addiction treatment while limiting physical contact. The ability to access patient care in a virtual setting reduces the need to travel or congregate in public areas, thus limiting potential exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses. Also, telehealth options often significantly reduce wait times to see a provider and increase access to treatment services that may not be local to you at this time. 

Telehealth for addiction uses two common methods to aid in ongoing addiction treatment in a virtual environment: text messages and computer screenings. Although not as personal as “in-person” contact or video conferencing, these methods increase the amount of contact time between clients and treatment counselors. The need for increased connection between providers and patients has become more essential now than ever before. Substance use disorders and addiction relapse are rooted in loneliness, isolation, and lack of accountability. During the pandemic, each of these struggles has become increasingly common. While many addiction treatment facilities are still offering inpatient rehab services, group meetings and support services have been significantly disrupted by the pandemic leading to increased treatment challenges. Organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) have begun utilizing virtual meeting opportunities, as have many outpatient addiction treatment services. For many, especially in the early stages of recovery, the ability to participate in support groups and therapy appointments is essential to preventing relapse.

Although COVID-19 has presented challenges to the scope of addiction treatment, virtual drug rehab provides crucial treatment opportunities for those needing or wanting to seek addiction treatment. When you have decided to seek treatment, you should not feel like you must wait for the perfect time. Today is that time.
