What is a Telehealth Program?a patient talks to her doctor through a telehealth program

Telehealth involves the use of communication technology such as:

  • Web-based tools
  • Smartphone applications
  • Texting
  • Videoconferencing
  • Telephone-based services

With the use of advanced equipment and systems, you can receive treatment at home without traveling to an addiction treatment center or a therapist’s office. While telehealth services are not ideal for every client, the technology has been beneficial in helping people maintain a sustainable recovery during or after rehab.

Our programs are flexible enough so that you can use them on virtually any device – your phone, tablet, computer, or video monitor. We can help you set up your service and guide you through the steps to learn how to access the technology online.

The Benefits of Telehealth Services

Although a telehealth program does not guarantee that a patient will complete at-home rehab or therapy, there are several benefits to the services:

Instant Remote Access

Regardless of where you are located, you can logon to your computer and reach your therapist or treatment center instantly. This means when you travel you can still meet with your treatment specialist instead of finding someone new. 

Perfect for Clients in Rural Areas

If you live in a rural area, you may not have access to the type of care you need when you need it. Driving to a treatment center or seeing your therapist regularly can be a hassle. Telemedicine allows you to visit with a treatment specialist without driving long-distance. 

Digital Messaging Can Keep You on Track

We provide digital messaging platforms that allow our therapists, family members, friends, and support groups to deliver ongoing and timely messages. Instant messages can be motivational, informational, or reminders.

Medical Alerts

If you have health problems due to your addiction, a telehealth program in CO can monitor your health at all times. We can assess your vital signs and receive alerts if there are any emergencies. When it comes to addiction and your health, you never have to feel alone.

Relapse Prevention

When you complete detox and rehab, you may have a difficult time transitioning back into your normal life. Telehealth services help you stay on track by giving you instant access to a support group or therapist when you are tempted to drink or take drugs.

Convincing a Loved One to Try Telehealth Services

If you have a loved one who is struggling with addiction, the idea of trying new technology may seem intimidating. This is especially true for someone who doesn’t use technology in any area of their life. It is important to provide encouragement and support for those who are accessing technology for the first time. 

Speak with a treatment specialist at CMAR to find out how you can be instrumental in helping someone warm up to using a telehealth program. Having technology as an additional resource can help someone in recovery avoid a relapse.
