In most traditional addiction treatment programs, you visit the center one to five days a week for therapy sessions, medication monitoring, and support from your treatment team. This model may work for most people. However, it may be challenging for others to get to the facility regularly for treatment. Telehealth intensive outpatient programs have been popping up all over to accommodate those who struggle with transportation or a jam-packed schedule.
At Bayview Recovery, we strive to make addiction treatment accessible to everyone. Our full range of outpatient programs ensures that we have a program to fit your recovery needs. The addition of telehealth IOP expands our reach even further. To learn more about how our addiction telehealth IOP works, call us today at 855.478.3650.
What Is an Addiction Telehealth IOP?
Telehealth IOP, or a telehealth intensive outpatient program, shifts treatment sessions from the facility to video or smartphone. You receive all the same sessions you would at a traditional IOP, including individual counseling, group therapy, and family therapy. You would also continue to meet with a physician to monitor your medication and discuss any withdrawal symptoms or cravings. The only difference in the telehealth IOP model is that you attend sessions through platforms like Zoom or Google Meet. These virtual meetings take place on your PC, laptop or mobile device.
Is a Telehealth Intensive Outpatient Program Right for You?
A telehealth IOP might be your best addiction treatment option if:
You live far from the treatment facility
Telehealth treatment for addiction removes the obstacle of distance when it comes to getting help for recovery. This expands your options so that you can pick the treatment center you prefer without concern for the location.
You don’t have reliable transportation
Whether you have a vehicle you cannot count on or you don’t drive, telehealth IOP allows you to stay consistent with your treatment. You don’t need to worry about whether your car will start or if you can get a ride to the treatment center. All you need is a reliable internet connection and a laptop, cell phone, or another digital device.
You have a busy work or school schedule
By eliminating the commute to the treatment facility, you will be more likely to find the time you need to accommodate work, school, and addiction treatment. Some clients even find that they can attend telehealth IOP sessions during their breaks at work or between classes.
You don’t have help with childcare
Some people don’t have a partner or family members who can assist with childcare duties so that they can attend treatment at a facility. A telehealth intensive outpatient program enables you to receive addiction treatment at home so that lack of help with childcare doesn’t interfere with your recovery.
Bayview Recovery: Convenient Telehealth Treatment for Addiction
Even if none of the above apply to you, you may still enjoy the convenience of telehealth IOP. Telehealth addiction treatment has benefits beyond accommodating the inability to get to the treatment center. Attending virtual treatment sessions may feel more comfortable for some people, especially those with anxiety disorders. Telehealth IOPs remove multiple barriers to treatment. As a result, more people can (and will) get the help they need to overcome addiction.
At Bayview Recovery, we understand that traveling to our treatment facility one to five days a week can be challenging for some. Therefore, we want to ensure that all of our clients can access the help they need when and where they need it. Our addiction telehealth IOP makes it easier than ever to keep up with your treatment from the comfort of your home. Reach out to us at 855.478.3650 to enroll in our telehealth IOP and get the convenient support you need to maintain your recovery.
