Vertava Health Offers Telehealth Services to Help Patients Struggling with Addiction
Vertava Health, a national provider of addiction treatment services with headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, has announced that they are offering telehealth services to help patients struggling with addiction during the COVID-19 pandemic. They want to point out that telehealth or “healing at a distance” has become a key element of the treatment of substance use disorder (SUD) during this time when the threat of the coronavirus still exists. Telehealth services for patients struggling with addiction include: care management and coordination, monitoring and psychoeducation, individual and group psychotherapy/counseling, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and peer support groups.
Telehealth makes use of laptops, smartphones, desktop computers, and tablets to provide a secure and a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant method of contact between patients and treatment providers. The Vertava Health telehealth services are available for all patients, including current patients, prospective patients, and alumni. Support is provided for all phases of addiction treatment, from one-on-one physician-patient consultations to support group meetings and aftercare.
The telehealth services are also helpful for alumni who are on the road to recovery to assist them in coping with stress, disruption, and anxiety, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because telehealth enables off-site therapists and counselors to conduct sessions with those who require their help.
Telehealth may also be used to help new patients get the care that they need. Before they finally decide to attend a residential treatment program, new patients may talk to psychiatrists via telehealth. Vertava Health also enables first visits with clinical providers for patients who require addiction assessment and treatment. And those who are currently undergoing therapy can get it from clinical social workers or licensed therapists with the use of telehealth technology. Ongoing medication monitoring and psychiatric care can also be provided through virtual meetings with treatment providers.
Telehealth may also include recovery text messaging, chats, voice messaging, and video support. Studies have shown that telehealth or telemedicine may be able to boost access to treatment and therapy for patients with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Vertava Health is currently pursuing more additional accreditation to be able to expand its telehealth/ telemedicine support for people who require treatment for substance use disorder.
Vertava Health is a fully certified behavioral healthcare provider of both onsite and virtual care for substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health issues. They use evidence-based treatment programs that have been developed by licensed professionals who help establish a comprehensive life for patients in recovery beyond the usual 30-day plan. They have several residential inpatient and outpatient treatment centers across the US and a nationwide network of healthcare providers. Vertava Health offers 24-hour nursing care, daily consultations with medical providers, and regular monitoring of any withdrawal symptoms and vital signs. Recently, they underwent a rebrand from Addiction Campuses to Vertava Health.
Those who are interested in learning more about their continuum of care that spans the whole recovery process, from acute detox to residential care to extended outpatient support through telehealth, may want to check out the Vertava Health website, or contact them on the phone or via email. They can be contacted 24 hours a day, from Monday to Sunday.
