Telehealth for Veterans

Substance abuse and mental illness can be particular challenges for veterans, but different treatments specifically geared toward this group can help reduce substance use and improve the overall quality of life and well-being. Banyan’s telehealth for veterans is focused on the wellness of the veteran, not just the treatment of their disorder. Our telehealth rehab for veterans offers specific, dedicated resources and programs for those who struggle with addiction and mental health disorders like alcoholism, PTSD, or depression.

What Is Telehealth?

Also referred to as telemedicine, telehealth is a healthcare delivery model that connects clients and their providers via technology as opposed to in-person visits. While veterans’ telehealth visits have soared by over 1,000% due to COVID-19, the VA has actually relied on telehealth delivery methods for half a decade.1

While telehealth services are available for the treatment of all kinds of medical conditions, Banyan’s addiction treatment facilities focus on helping its clients recover from substance use and mental health disorders. The main benefits of these services are convenience and safety since clients can conduct telehealth visits from the comfort of their own homes.

We understand that, aside from COVID-19, other roadblocks could prevent clients from getting to a facility. From the inability to commute due to busy schedules, clients are now able to receive consistent treatment because of the flexibility offered by our telehealth addiction treatment.

An additional benefit of our online rehab programs is that specific technologies are used that can monitor and aggregate important health data and track patients’ progress, thereby making it easier for our specialists to keep track of their recovery. Telehealth for veterans ensures that they receive continuous treatment no matter where they are or what their schedule looks like.

Our Telehealth Veterans Recovery Program

All of our telehealth services are offered on an intensive outpatient level of care. Otherwise referred to as an intensive outpatient program, IOP is a continuum of addiction care used in the treatment of not only substance use disorders but also mental health disorders and eating disorders. This form of care is best suited for individuals who do not require medically assisted detox or 24-hour supervision, making it the perfect basis for our telehealth services.

Our online addiction treatment is administered in an IOP structure for patients who have busy schedules, families to sustain, or other responsibilities but they want to finish their rehab programs. Clients in our Veterans in Recovery program online connect with our specialists, therapists, and counselors via video chat, online chat, and telephone. All sessions and information shared remain confidential, as they would in any other rehab setting.

  • Alcohol Addiction Treatment
