Telehealth Therapy is a fast, effective way to receive personalized mental health and addiction therapy services online from the comfort and privacy of one’s home.
If you have ever used Skype, FaceTime, or Zoom before, telehealth functions the same way, but you are talking to a licensed, qualified therapist or physician. An additional added benefit is that all calls are protected to the strictest confidentiality and privacy standards.

For individuals who might be unsure about trying mental health or substance abuse treatment services for the first time, scheduling a telehealth appointment can be a great starting point. Participants can get a feel for how this therapy works and if it’s right for them.
Other people who benefit from telehealth therapy are those who are struggling with substance abuse or mental illness and need support. This type of therapy can be accessed at any point in the recovery process.

Is Telehealth Therapy as Effective as Face-to-Face Sessions?
Even though telehealth is getting more attention these days, it has been around for many years. This has given researchers a chance to study this type of therapy, how it can be used, and its effectiveness. Overall, the research tells us that teletherapy is just as effective as traditional therapy.
Telecounseling and in-person services revolve around the same core principles: Communication between the licensed therapist and the client, identifying motives for seeking treatment, and setting personal goals for the individual.
It’s important to note that the factors that make face-to-face therapy effective matter in telehealth, too. For example, successful therapy sessions depend on a positive relationship between the therapist and client. To ensure our clients receive consistent, high-quality care, only trained therapists lead our in-person and online therapy sessions.
How Does Your Telehealth Service Work?
Our telehealth services work similarly to other services of this kind. After scheduling your session, log into our secure platform at your designated appointment time. A qualified therapist or physician will talk with you and lead the session as they would in a face-to-face setting. The only difference is that you and the therapist are not in the same room.
With this approach, you can access all of the essential treatment services you need to maintain a high quality of life.
Are Your Telehealth Services Private?
Your data privacy is something that we treat with utmost importance. All telehealth appointments that you schedule with us are as private as a face-to-face session. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible, knowing that your confidentiality remains intact and you can share what you are thinking, feeling, and experiencing with our therapists.
Therapists are ethically and legally bound by privacy and confidentiality laws not to share details about their clients. To ensure these standards are met, our therapists provide their services in a safe, secure room on a secure platform. Sessions are also not recorded or shared.
Aside from the practicality and convenience of telehealth services, there are other reasons to consider online therapy. We want our clients and their families to know that help is always available! Here are a few important benefits of participating in our telehealth services:
Accessible to more people
Some people live in rural areas in Florida and have a harder time accessing quality substance abuse and mental health treatment services. Others have disabilities that make travel difficult or lack a dependable mode of transportation. Telehealth removes these barriers and makes talk therapy accessible to more people.
Compatible with multiple devices
Not everyone can access the same electronic devices. For example, if you do not have a computer but you have a smartphone or tablet, you can still attend your session. If you have an internet connection, you can schedule an appointment with us.
Flexible for busy schedules
It’s easy for people to put off their therapy sessions when there are limited hours. If you’re recovering from an addiction or transitioning into your everyday life, you may have other responsibilities keeping you busy during the day. Our teletherapy services are flexible and accommodating, allowing you to access treatment when you need it most.
Our teletherapy and telecounseling services are designed to be flexible and accommodating, allowing you to access treatment when you need it most. They are a resource to help you live a better quality of life and should never be an obstacle.
No travel or wait times
When you utilize our telehealth services, you can enjoy reduced travel and wait times. While this might sound like a small thing, it can make all the difference to someone who is unsure about receiving treatment.
During a remote session, you log into the secure platform at your exact appointment time from wherever you are. This can be done with a computer or smartphone device and can be done with cellular data if you cannot access WiFi from where you are.
Safe, supportive environment
If you’re someone who experiences anxiety when visiting a doctor or therapist, you’ll find a teletherapy session to be less stressful. Whitecoat syndrome is real and can interfere with a healthy therapy session.
When you’re relaxed, you’ll have an easier time opening up about your struggles. A comfortable environment can provide an extra sense of security and confidence to share with your therapist.
Support healthy lifestyle
When you’re out and about, it’s easier to grab fast food or a snack from the vending machine. You might also skip your nightly walk or meditation session. By accessing therapy services from your home, you have access to your own facilities. Grab a healthy snack from the fridge, open the window to let in a fresh breeze, or sit in your favorite chair. This will make therapy more enjoyable and rewarding for you.
Can be combined with face-to-face sessions
For those who prefer face-to-face communication, but cannot always travel to appointments, telehealth sessions can be done in combination with in-person treatment – often with the same therapist.
For example, if you are planning to travel with your family for a vacation but do not want to miss an appointment, you can schedule a remote session with your usual therapist. This allows you to continue accessing the services you need without having to worry about being within driving distance.
If you are interested in our telehealth services, contact Compassion Behavioral Health today. We are committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive substance abuse and mental health services to our clients. We are here for you and your family.
In an effort to be as flexible and accommodating as possible, you can utilize our teletherapy services in various ways. For example, you can schedule weekly therapy sessions or participate in group therapy. Our goal is to make therapy as accessible as possible despite a person’s circumstances.
