Telehealth for Addiction – Services & Remote Rehab Access
“Our number one goal is to save lives and to give support to those in early recovery who may be at risk for relapse in the midst of this pandemic –Derek Price, Desert Hope CEO”
Telehealth Outpatient Services
AAC’s Telehealth Services will be offered through a confidential, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing service. Patients will receive a personalized access code that they can use throughout the course of treatment from the comfort of home. Currently, more than half of Desert Hope’s patients utilize outpatient services. For most people, after medical detox and residential treatment they transition to outpatient services, which is the longest stretch of care and can last 30 days or more.
Outpatient Care Topics
Some of the topics covered in outpatient care can include:
“During this time, some in recovery may be experiencing stress, anxiety and isolation, which are all triggers for relapse. We also don’t want the fear of catching COVID-19 or childcare concerns to stop them from seeking lifesaving care at this when our nation is still facing an addiction crisis,” –Derek Price, CEO of Desert Hope Treatment Center, an AAC facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
