What Is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine, or telehealth, means the use of technology to deliver healthcare at a distance. It allows healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat patients via phone, computer, messaging, and video. An alternative to in-person visits, telemedicine is frequently used for medication management, follow-up visits, mental health counseling, consultations, and management of chronic conditions. It’s also utilized for online alcohol treatment programs like Ria Health.

What are the Advantages of Telemedicine For Alcohol Recovery?

Convenience

Medical visits can take place from the comfort of your couch, or anywhere with internet access. There’s no travel time and no sitting in a waiting room, so these appointments are easier to fit into your schedule. With online alcohol treatment programs like Ria, you can consult with medical professionals, meet with recovery coaches, and participate in support groups, all from an app on your smartphone. 

Savings

In addition to saving time, telehealth treatment can save you money. It eliminates travel expenses, and you don’t have to take time off work. Reduced overhead for doctors and medical companies also trickles down to patients in terms of lower fees, and many insurance companies now cover telemedicine. Telehealth addiction treatment is far more affordable than brick-and-mortar treatment centers, which often cost thousands per month.

Effectiveness

Most importantly, telemedicine is just as effective as in-person treatment, if not more so. In fact, one 2016 study found that telehealth addiction treatment was more effective than standard continuing care.1 The accessibility and affordability of online alcohol rehab makes it easier to stick with treatment, increasing your chances of long-term success.

Privacy

Telemedicine can happen from home, or anywhere you have space to yourself, so no one needs to know more than you want them to. Ria Health’s private alcohol treatment lets you keep your daily life and schedule intact. We are also strict about protecting user data, and are fully HIPAA compliant. Your information will never be shared without your permission.

Long-Term Support

Telehealth makes consistent, long-term communication with your doctor easier and more affordable. This allows Ria Health to focus on gradual, lasting change instead of “quick fixes.” Access to ongoing support can also lift morale and reduce your chances of returning to your previous drinking patterns. Via telemedicine, you can keep your support team for as long as you need to feel secure in the changes you’ve made.
