Many people who live in rural areas or who don't have access to transportation have trouble getting the care they need; this is especially true for those who are living with severe mental illness. Luckily there are now many online therapists and psychiatrists available at Crownview Telehealth Institute.
Mental healthy therapy and addiction treatment is now available online from the comfort of your own home!
Online mental health therapy is a convenient way to receive treatment, which is delivered over the internet using a webcam and microphone, instead of a traditional in-office visit. This means that you have the ability to access it from your computer or mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, anywhere that you have a steady internet connection. Online therapy has become increasingly more popular, especially among those who are are living with substance abuse, anxiety disorders, or depression. Virtual counseling and online treatment are excellent options because you can get the help that you need, whenever you need it, from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Telepsychology has been around for more than 20 years now, but the explosion of smartphones in our society has created new opportunities to provide therapy to those who need it, and at a lower cost.Online therapy has been shown to be just as effective for various mental illnesses, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders (including but not limited to OCD), eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, personality disorders such as borderline personality disorder or antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) - and even schizophrenia.
People often ask themselves how much they are willing to spend on something as important as mental health and medical treatments while there is little access or opportunity available where we live. Telepsychologists have had great success with patients who may not be able to otherwise afford treatment due to location-based challenges such as: being too far away from their therapist's office, missing appointments because of an inconsistent work schedule that doesn't allow them time off during business hours, or other reasons that are out of their control and preventing the use of regular services.
There are a number of ways that mental health and addiction services can be obtained online, but there is one common desire amongst all patients: privacy. Patients want to know for certain that their information will not be shared with third parties without their permission. Some may worry about the security of online therapy sessions due to recent hacks in cyber-security; however this concern has been addressed by new advancements within the field which ensure HIPAA compliance on any given platform used for such purposes. Crownview Telehealth Institute's HIPAA compliant platform ensures that your private information won't just fall into anyone’s hands on accident — it'll will stay safe and sound, while we work together towards recovery.
Crownview Telehealth Institute’s Online IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) and Online PHP (Partial Hospitalization, also called Day Program) offer comprehensive, fully-developed modular programs with considerable adaptability to the needs of the client- and are fully online. Even via a computer, we always seek to create strong therapeutic relationships. These can carry over beyond the typical 8-10 week IOP with less intensive, ongoing after-care programs. Every client receives professional, rigorous case management with weekly check-ins that provides monitoring of the effectiveness of treatment. There is strong and growing evidence online treatment is at the same level of effectiveness as in-office treatment. Be assured, these programs are fully developed, tested, and proven.
Telehealth and telepsychiatric sessions involve a home computer, laptop, tablet, or (minimally) a smartphone that connects the client to mental health professionals with real-time, two-way audio and video communication via the internet. You will need fairly standard internet speeds of at least 0.8 Mbps (megabits per second) for downloads and 0.25 Mbps for uploads. You will receive instructions about how to download the video conference software. There’s absolutely no need to buy any software, it’s really as simple as that.
