Your recovery begins with an assessment with one of our licensed behavioral health professionals designed to connect you to the appropriate care plan. That assessment can be scheduled by calling, chatting or visiting the facility in person. Online therapy may be recommended by a medical professional based on the results of the initial assessment.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
Once you have enrolled in online therapy after your assessment, either the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), you will receive a schedule and information regarding initial communication with your assigned therapist and therapy group using Zoom.
Online therapy is conducted much the same as in-person group therapy, except you will be connected with your group via video conference. Your therapist will use evidence-based treatment to create dialogue and provide a safe environment to work through your behavioral health concerns and help you make significant changes.
Participation in tele-therapy is simple: a computer, laptop, or smartphone and a valid email address is all that is needed.
Our Online Therapy Guidelines
It is important to be in a private space during the session, away from distractions and other people, to ensure the privacy of the group. You may prefer to use headphones during your sessions.
- Refrain from taking calls, texting, using social media, emailing, direct messaging, and any other interactions while in session.
- Attend all scheduled sessions on time for the full duration. Regular breaks are scheduled by your therapist.
- Communicate all scheduling issues in advance with your therapist. Late arrivals, early departures and absences that have not been shared with your therapist will initiate the unscheduled absence process, which may result in the facility contacting your emergency contact or requesting a wellness check from local authorities. Your safety is our number one priority.
- Make the most of your online therapy by engaging with the therapist and the group, sharing your thoughts and feelings and doing work outside the group, such as keeping a journal of your progress.
