Can Online Addiction Rehab Help?
When someone has an addiction problem, most say “just go to rehab”. But obstacles abound, and untreated addictions can be fatal. Everyone deserves treatment options, says Recovery Direct. Access to care and support should not be hampered by inability to attend an in-person rehab programme Our virtual IOP was designed for clients who cannot attend in-person rehab.
One of the most cited reasons for going virtual is the COVID-19 pandemic. When a public health crisis prevents them from interacting, addicts must seek support elsewhere. Many people cannot leave their daily lives to attend a rehab programme. Private rehab is costly. There may be a lack of local services. Addiction treatment in person can be difficult for people with disabilities.
Many people simply prefer virtual alternatives.
Recovery Direct customises each client’s addiction treatment programme to their unique needs. We have them too. Starting with a phone assessment, we learn about you, your addiction, your goals, and other details. So we can customise your treatment plan. Addiction and recovery are personal stories. Your initial phone assessment will determine your treatment plan. Online yoga and meditation are just a few of the options available to you.
Treatment for addiction online
This is a practical way to reach people who may not otherwise seek help. It may be more effective than in-person rehab for some.
Among the benefits
