UPDATE MAY 2021: Telehealth services are not currently being offered as the world continues to open up and our in-person treatment services have been able to resume in full. We will continue to monitor the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and telehealth services will always be a resource available should we need them as our top priority is providing quality care for individuals in need.
Accessibility during the pandemic is a major issue for individuals in need of mental health treatment. Fortunately, telehealth services or online therapy has grown over the last few months. Here at Integrative Life Center, we have implemented virtual therapy services and treatment in these unprecedented times as a way to safely serve people during lockdown. If you or a loved one is in need of help in dealing with depression, anxiety, or any mental health issues, we’re here to help. When you or a loved one reach out, you’ll find our compassionate and experienced therapists and counselors ready to give the support necessary.
Our Telehealth Services During COVID-19
Telehealth services are when treatment facilities use virtual and telecommunication technologies to support long-distance clinical health care. By using Internet video conferencing, streaming media, and wireless communication, we supply the therapeutic services and treatment programs individuals need. For example, our online therapy includes:
- Anxiety treatment
- Grief and loss treatment
- Depression treatment
- Trauma-informed therapy
Our telehealth services provide wider access and flexibility. Many of us have our smartphones on us nearly all the time. Thus, online therapy is in the palm of your hand. Our virtual treatment is convenient and comfortable. You’re able to find a place in your home or elsewhere that gives you a sense of security and ease, and you make contact with your therapist or counselor. Doing so saves you time and money while meeting your mental health needs. It’s vital during these times that individuals don’t allow their mental health to fall to the wayside.
Our Virtual or Online Programs During the Pandemic
Our telehealth services allow individuals access to our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) virtually during pandemic times. By using a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer with a camera, microphone, and Internet connection, individuals can connect to our online therapy. Scheduling sessions is really no different than doing so in-person. The advantage is that clients can get treatment in the comfort of their own home. Our virtual PHP includes:
- Gender-specific programming for men and women
- 25-hours of group programming per week
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy
- Music Therapy
- Art Therapy
Also, our PHP offers supported weekday lunches with staff members, two individual sessions per week with an assigned primary therapist, and access to the virtual family program.
Similarly, our virtual IOP provides 12-hours of group programming per week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. This includes the same quality therapies offered in our partial hospitalization program. Patients receive one individual session per week with an assigned primary therapist and access to our virtual family program. Both our partial hospitalization program and intensive outpatient program grant access to the Integrative Life Center app, which allows individuals to organize their sessions and explore other features of our facility and programs.
