Coalition Recovery’s Online Treatment Program
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. The approach has been through a striking evolution in the last decade and it is becoming an increasingly important part of the American healthcare infrastructure.
Telemedicine allows healthcare professionals to reach people and areas that were once near impossible. For instance, people who rely on wheelchairs had difficult times going to and from their health check-ups. It would often require special transportation to-and-from or they would require in house-call appointments. Either scenario is neither cheap nor convenient. Thanks to the ever-growing accessibility of technology people can now receive healthcare wherever they are through their phone, tablet or computer.
Telehealth is changing the healthcare industry by providing care to anyone with a smart device and internet. Over 90% of Americans use and have access to the internet, making healthcare accessible to 9 in 10 individuals – making healthcare far more accessible than ever before.
Outpatient and Ongoing Recovery Care
Tele-treatment doesn’t have to stop once the treatment program ends. Part of the recovery process is continual engagement and monitoring. To obtain the best chance for success, individuals are required to participate in some form of outpatient care after completing treatment. Thankfully, tele-treatment makes outpatient care easier than ever. No more driving to and from your psychiatrist’s office and then two and from your therapist’s office every week. Now you can do both in an hour over your lunch break!
What Does Tele-Treatment Look Like?
Where tele-health encompasses any medical practice done remotely over the phone or online, tele-treatment is specific to drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Tele-treatment offers everything an in-person rehab offers – from group therapy sessions, family therapy, and even individual therapy sessions with a private therapist.
The beauty of tele-treatment is that it fits with any schedule. You have a busy day today? No problem, schedule an hour during your lunch break! Couldn’t make the group therapy this morning? You can reschedule for later this afternoon! Too often life gets in the way, but your recovery shouldn’t suffer because of these circumstances. Tele-treatment makes it easy to overcome these obstacles and keep your recovery on track.
Worried about confidentiality?
No need. Here at Coalition Recovery, we utilize the utmost safest software available to keep your information secure. Every documentation needed can be done through our secure portal – meaning any information sent and received will be transcribed and coded to prevent hacking of any kind.
Limitations of Tele-Treatment
While an online rehab offers most of an in-person rehab, there may be some preliminary requirements based on history of use and level of care. Because our virtual rehab is done entirely over telecommunications, if a physical examination is required, this could be performed in our Tampa facility or by a local physician. A detox process may also be required depending on the substance and frequency of use. If detox is required, this can also be performed at our facility in Tampa, Fl. For further assistance please call and speak with one of our representatives; they are available 24/7 to walk you through the virtual rehab process and assess any necessary preliminary procedures before starting our online treatment program.
Cost of Online Treatment
Insurance now covers tele-health treatment! To find out if your insurance covers tele-health, call your insurance provider and ask. You say you don’t want to deal with insurance companies (completely understandable), well then call us anytime and we can figure everything out for you!
“What if I don’t have insurance?” Tele-Treatment is extremely affordable. Telehealth is actually more economical than an inpatient rehab facility. Because everyone’s program, frequency, and schedule is different; pricing is done case-by-case. To find out how much tele-health will cost you, all that is required is a 5 minute phone call with one of our representatives who are available 24/7
Tele-Treatment is great for…
Anyone in Active Recovery
Leaving a treatment center doesn’t have to mean you must give up on therapy. Much like other chronic illnesses like diabetes, substance abuse requires ongoing maintenance and care to keep it in check. Tele-treatment can be an option for individuals to continue their therapy no matter where they go after treatment.
Individuals With Physical Limitations
Opioid addiction is extremely common for people with physical disabilities due to chronic pain typically associated. These limitations make it especially difficult to attend a treatment center. Tele-treatment mitigate these challenges by bringing treatment to a person’s home.
People with Work and Family Obligations
One of the most common ways people do not receive proper care for their SUDs. People have financial obligations; it can be hard to afford these while taking 3-months off work for treatment. Families are similar; it can be hard for almost all single parents to attend a full inpatient treatment program. Tele-treatment can help these individuals obtain some form of medical care while working and caring for children.
Locations Where Treatment is Not Accessible
Treatment centers are often located in urban areas to reach and care for a large demographic. Unfortunately, this leaves people in rural areas to travel long and expensive distances to receive proper care. Tele-treatment can help solve this problem!
Students have busy schedules. While medical leave is an option to temporarily take time off of school to focus on treatment, after treatment ends, students continue to participate in weekly therapies while in college. Often times these schools are in different states than their treatment center. Tele-health allows students to continue care with their therapist while also being flexible enough to work around a hectic academic schedule.
Tele-treatment can be an option for individuals with a hectic work schedule. It can not only be difficult to take time off of work but due to the stigma surrounding addiction, leaving for a substance abuse problem can disrupt many aspects of work and life. For this reason, tele-treatment can be a viable option. Without proper management of substance use disorders, work performance will eventually suffer – tele-treatment can help executives overcome their addiction all while maintaining a work-life balance.
