Telehealth Rehabilitation Services Near Fort Lauderdale and Miami

As the U.S. continues to be mindful of the number of COVID-19 patients, many people are wondering how they are supposed to get the healthcare services they need. You’re still able to go into a doctor’s office, but why risk it when you can do that consultation from home?

Enter telehealth. Also known as telemedicine, this approach to healthcare creates the opportunity for you to work with doctors, therapists, and other medical professional either over the phone or online for some of your appointments.

Recovery First Treatment Center in Hollywood, Florida, recently adopted telehealth technology for all of its outpatient services in Florida to help reach as many people as possible who are seeking out addiction treatment but cannot travel due to coronavirus restrictions. Read on to learn more about how our telehealth programs work.

Telehealth Services in South Florida at Recovery First

Recovery First is offering telehealth services both to its remote patients and the patients within its facility. For patients who are on site, they can expect the following services to be offered in a virtual setting:

  • Inpatient therapy groups.
  • Individual counseling sessions.
  • Psychiatry services.

These in-facility telehealth services are being offered to protect certain medical staff deemed high-risk for serious complications from the novel virus. With this option, the patient is onsite at the facility and the staff member connects with them virtually in a designated room.

For those who are choosing remote outpatient services from Recovery First, you can expect:

  • An assessment at the beginning of treatment.
  • Therapy sessions, both one on one with your therapist and in groups.
  • Psychoeducational groups on various topics such as relapse prevention.
