Eleanor Health Mooresville Offers Virtual Addiction Treatment In Charlotte, North Carolina
NC based Eleanor Health Mooresville is pleased to announce that they are now accepting virtual customers for addiction treatment in Charlotte North Carolina. Eleanor Health’s mission is to help people affected by addiction lead amazing lives, and this has remained consistent even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic continues to disrupt people’s daily lives and cause more restrictions affecting how they travel, work and socialize. As a result, Eleanor Health is taking steps to ensure the safety of their members and staff while still being able to continue providing treatment, and they are now accepting virtual members for their telehealth services. Eleanor Health assures patients that even though COVID-19 has changed how they deliver their services, their level of care and compassion in doing so has not changed.
Interested parties may now use any internet-capable device to access Eleanor Health’s intake system to start their journey to recovery. Under Eleanor Health’s telehealth services, members can virtually visit nurses and discuss both old and new physical health needs. Patients can also undergo virtual therapy sessions with their therapist or counselor individually, with a group or with family members. In addition, they can receive treatment for co-occurring disorders (mental health disorders experienced alongside addiction) as well by consulting with psychiatric practitioners. Eleanor Health’s telehealth services also allow patients to connect with and receive support from their community recovery partner, helping them feel more secure and stable throughout their treatment.
Meanwhile, patients can also meet with a member of the Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) team to receive prescriptions for medication and undergo MAT. Those who undergo MAT take medications in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies. MAT helps reduce an individual’s cravings for substances and boosts the chances for a successful, long-term recovery. According to studies, MAT also reduces the risk of death from overdose by as much as 60% in a year.
However, methadone, one of the most commonly used medicine for MAT, is strictly regulated and requires regularly scheduled clinic visits. The COVID-19 pandemic makes adhering to these regular visits raise health concerns. People who undergo MAT may have to encounter long lines and close contact with other people in order to receive medication. On the other hand, those who choose to stop going to clinics regularly will lose their access to essential medications and may fall into relapse and overdose. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration responded to this problem by allowing up to four-weeks of take home doses for stable patients. However, patients whose recoveries are considered less stable are still required to regularly visit their clinics to receive their medication.
Eleanor Health is taking steps in order to continue providing their members with the medication they need to continue their treatment. Patients who cannot continue to safely receive methadone will be provided assistance in transitioning to buprenorphine, a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for MAT.
Eleanor Health also offers free online support groups. There are support groups for individuals who identify on the LGBTQI+ spectrum, who identify as BIPOC, are recovering from addiction, who use substances and even loved ones of people suffering from addiction. Members of the support groups share strategies, experiences and successes to help each other.
As noted on their website, Eleanor Health’s approach uses evidence-based physician services, therapy and counseling and community-based resources and support services. It is an approach that recognizes the importance of evidence-based medical care, its members’ mental health and the need to receive ongoing, focused support.
Eleanor Health also roots their actions in respect for their members’ values, culture and life experiences. The clinic assures patients that they will be seen as unique individuals and treated with dignity and compassion. Everyone on their team works together to improve their patient’s quality of life. Eleanor Health is passionate about transforming the quality, delivery and accessibility of addiction treatment, and they recognize that people need better addiction care that is focused on their personal needs. They assert that addiction care must be made available and accessible to everyone who needs it in order to save more lives.
