What are the Benefits of Your Telehealth Program?
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.
