Achieving long-term sobriety from addiction can be challenging, requiring effective and personalized treatment programs and plans to help patients reach their goals in recovery. As a nationwide addiction treatment center, we operate a family of facilities providing all levels of treatment for patients who need help getting sober. Addiction, alcoholism, mental health disorders, and co-occurring disorders require professional assistance for effective treatment. On this note, not only do our rehab locations offer inpatient care, but we also provide several types of virtual addiction treatment through our Banyan Telehealth Programs 


Our Virtual Substance Abuse Treatment 

With millions of Americans facing the challenges of substance abuse, there is no one way to treat addiction. Our Banyan rehab locations are committed to helping people recover from all types of substance use disorders, offering them not only inpatient services but also outpatient services, particularly telehealth addiction treatment offered on an intensive outpatient level of care.  

Our locations offer multiple types of virtual addiction treatment, specialized according to the substance, including:  

  • Alcohol Addiction Treatment 
  • Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment 
  • Cocaine Addiction Treatment 
  • Heroin Addiction Treatment 
  • Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment 
  • Opioid Addiction Treatment 
  • Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment 

Our online addiction treatment services are designed to help clients transition to sober lifestyles following inpatient care. Telehealth is also often combined with residential services like medically assisted detox to ensure clients receive continuous support no matter where they are. These services are available to adults ages 18 and older of various demographics and backgrounds, including:  

  • Adults struggling with addiction 
  • Adults struggling with mental illness 
  • College students (ages 18 and older) 
  • Executives and other high-level professionals with addiction or mental illness 
  • First responders 
  • Pregnant women struggling with addiction and/or mental illness 
  • Veterans and their families 

Banyan Telehealth Mental Health Providers 

In addition to virtual substance abuse treatment, our telehealth program also addresses mental illness and co-occurring disorders. Also offered in intensive outpatient and outpatient levels of treatment, below is more on our telehealth mental health services.  

Co-Occurring Disorders 

People with substance use disorders are at particular risk for developing one or more primary conditions or chronic diseases. The coexistence of both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder is otherwise known as a co-occurring disorder. These disorders may include a combination of addiction and mental illness.  

Common mental health disorders that co-occur with addiction and are addressed in our telehealth program include:  

  • Anxiety and mood disorders 
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) 
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Conduct disorders 
  • Major depressive disorder 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 
  • Schizophrenia 

Patients being treated for these disorders often struggle with the following types of substances:  

  • Alcohol 
  • Hallucinogens 
  • Marijuana 
  • Opioids 
  • Prescription drugs 
  • Stimulants 
  • Tobacco 

Our telehealth mental health treatment is designed to help clients cope with recovery from both addictions and mental illness without relying on the harmful behaviors of the other. Included in our services are individual therapy and group counseling. We also encourage family involvement in counseling to help clients rebuild relationships and sustain their recovery at home.  

Grief & Loss 

Unfortunately, grief and loss are inevitable and inescapable parts of life. Grief and loss are not only generally common, but they are also common contributing factors to conditions like addiction and mental illness. Many people turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with loss and sadness, while others develop mental health disorders because of unaddressed grief and loss. For these reasons, our telehealth services also include treatment for grief and loss, as these emotions are common struggles among individuals with substance use and psychiatric disorders.  

PTSD & Trauma Disorders 

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of mental health disorder that develops when trauma-related symptoms are left unaddressed and untreated. Traumatic events that could cause symptoms that lead to PTSD – either by witnessing or experiencing them – include natural disasters, sexual assault, physical assault, shooting or stabbing, the sudden death of a loved one, hospitalization, and receiving the diagnosis of a chronic illness. While some people eventually recover from the trauma, some traumatic events can be more difficult to come to terms with.  

For individuals who do not naturally recover from trauma exposure on their own, confronting your feelings and seeking professional help is often the best way of treating PTSD. With this in mind, our virtual addiction treatment facilities offer telehealth for trauma to help those with PTSD and other trauma-related problems learn how to cope with their symptoms in their everyday lives.  

Virtual Addiction Counseling & Treatment at Banyan 

Considering the many challenges, the nation faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, including a lack of medical attention due to cancellations of in-person appointments, Banyan Treatment Centers knew something had to be done. Along with select other facilities in the country, our family of rehab centers worked to create an effective telehealth program that would offer services necessary for those in recovery to sustain their sobriety and healing no matter where they were in the world.
