What to look for in Telehealth addiction treatment.

With “virtual rehabs”, patients who live with addiction dial into secure platforms to access their treatment, therapists, group sessions, and other types of recovery treatment — all from the comfort of their own homes.

When searching for the right telehealth addiction treatment service, there are many factors that play into the decision – and it isn’t one to be taken lightly.  First, does the provider accept your insurance? The cost of telehealth addiction treatment is often a deterrent for those who need help, but it doesn’t need to be. Cove Recovery accepts commercial insurance as well as Medicaid and Medicare plans in Ohio.  If you are located outside of Ohio, please give us a call to confirm your insurance, because we are quickly adding new states to the program. It is essential that the telehealth addiction treatment center you choose will do everything in its power to accommodate you and work with you to have access to its services.

As equally important as affordability of services, is the quality of services.  Often, when you are looking up a new restaurant, or thinking about buying a new product on Amazon, you read reviews to see what the pros and cons of that person’s experience with that restaurant or that product was.  It is just as wise to read patient reviews of telehealth addiction treatment to gain perspective.  While no two experiences are the same, it often helps to hear that the telehealth staff is incredibly welcoming and friendly, or the therapists are kind and professional. Little tidbits of confirmation that as a patient, you will be treated with dignity and respect, can go a long way when you’re looking for high quality telehealth addiction treatment. 

Flexibility of treatment services is another important element in telehealth addiction treatment.  One of the sole purposes of telehealth addiction treatment is to ensure convenience of services, therefore, offering plenty of time slots during the day and evening for doctor’s appointments, individual and group counseling sessions, and case management appointments; is essential to a well-oiled telehealth addiction treatment service.  

It isn’t a secret that getting help for alcohol or drug addiction takes courage. Receiving help from a private, comfortable, and familiar setting reduces a major barrier to seeking help.  Also, privacy and confidentiality of patients’ personal health information are both critical to running an effective telehealth addiction treatment service. A company that respects your privacy and has the technological bandwidth ensure that your personal health information is protected and secured always, is important for all parties.
