Regular visits with your therapist are an important part of your treatment plan when you’re struggling with addiction or trying to gain control over a mental health condition like bipolar disorder or depression. However, getting to the office to see your therapist isn’t always a viable option. To ensure you continue to get the prompt care you need to manage your mental wellness, 2nd Chance throughout the greater Phoenix, Arizona area, offers telehealth appointments. To learn more about telehealth and whether it’s an option for you, call the office or request an appointment online today.
Telehealth is a form of remote health care. Instead of an in-person meeting with your therapist at 2nd Chance, you meet remotely using advanced telecommunication technology. This means you meet with your specialist from a location that’s convenient for you, whether it’s your home or office, using an electronic telecommunication device such as your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
The team at 2nd Chance is dedicated to helping you get the attentive and compassionate care you need without placing any additional stress on your recovery or mental health treatment.
If you’re an established patient, your specialist at 2nd Chance determines if you’re a good candidate for telehealth services.
Your specialist may suggest telehealth appointments for ongoing therapy sessions to help manage your addiction. You may also be a good candidate for telehealth for follow-up care for a mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or bipolar disorder.
The team at 2nd Chance may also suggest telehealth appointments to monitor and refill any prescription medication you take to manage your mental health condition or addiction. This includes medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid or alcohol addiction.
You may not be a good candidate for telehealth services if you’re struggling with an addiction and you’re not an established patient. In order to provide the comprehensive care you need, the specialists at 2nd Chance need to conduct a comprehensive physical and mental health evaluation, which may not be possible without an in-office visit.
You can expect the same attentive and compassionate care you get at your in-office visit during your telehealth appointment. Your telehealth visit is conducted using advanced telecommunication technology to ensure your information is safe and private.
During your telehealth visit, your therapist reviews your health concerns and medications, talks to you about your struggles, and offers strategies to improve your mental, emotional, and physical health. Your therapist also adjusts your prescription medications as needed and transmits your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
