Necessity is the mother of invention.....
Telemedicine, telehealth and teletherapy are becoming more broadly available and are part of the new normal as treatment professionals and those in recovery cope with the challenges of COVID19. On-going Medication Assisted Treatment is being conducted through 2-way video and over the phone. While some treatment providers report decreases in the number of people seeking services, other facilities have not experienced any slowdown. Intensive out-patient programs and group therapy are adapting well to their "virtual" settings and community partners, like WCTC, are helping to spread the word about new and accessible treatment and recovery supports. If you have information about prevention and treatment innovations , please share them with us.
