COVID-19 has paralyzed daily life. Travel, restaurants, and sports have all suspended operations. Large parts of the workforce are working from home under quarantine. With social isolation in place, going to an addiction treatment center can be more complicated. However, for those struggling with addiction, treatment is still available. Northern Illinois Recovery’s telehealth intensive outpatient program allows clients to access treatment materials and staff, no matter where they are. Just because you are quarantined does not mean you can not get help.
Telehealth covers a broad spectrum of services that do not require the patient to be physically present. Telehealth opportunities have increased in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, using the Internet to cut out the risk of exposure to the disease. Anyone with a phone or another working internet device can access treatment when, where, and how they want.
Telehealth intensive outpatient programs aren’t limited to addiction, either. Some patients, for example, may struggle with a dual diagnosis of substance use and mental health disorders. Other patients may only need mental health treatment. Both sets of patients can access their mental health therapists and treatment materials remotely.
Methods used in Northern Illinois Recovery’s telehealth intensive outpatient program include:
Addiction can affect anyone. It affects people of every age, race, gender, and economic class. Unfortunately, many people do not seek the help they need for a variety of reasons. Telehealth intensive outpatient programs break down barriers of location and schedule to allow more people to get the treatment they need. Help should be available to all who need it, and Northern Illinois Recovery wants to make that possible.
In this climate, telehealth also removes the fear people understandably have of person-to-person contact. No one wants to get, or to spread, COVID-19. By keeping treatment virtual and practicing social distancing, both staff and clients keep themselves and others safe.
We offer a number of addiction treatment programs for those looking to make a positive change in their lives. These programs are now available remotely and online via our telehealth programming. Programs we offer include:
Do not let COVID-19 keep you from getting the help you need to live your life. You can overcome addiction and a brighter day is coming. To learn more about a telehealth intensive outpatient program and addiction treatment options, call 855.786.1978 today.
