Telemedicine Uses – Teen Alcohol and Drug Treatment

by James Heller 30. August 2010 08:49
It’s difficult enough raising adolescent children, and then you discover the reason for their recent behavior issues is due to alcohol abuse or drug abuse.  You cringe at the thought of admitting them to alcohol and drug treatment because, beyond the shock you feel, it seems like yet another burden to tackle.  But it is important, and you know it, and telemedicine may be the solution for your hesitation.

Adolescent alcohol abuse and drug abuse can tear the closest families apart.  It starts with failing grades, behavior problems, and new friends who give parents that “bad feeling”.  A gradual increase of difficult situations explodes when parents discover substance abuse among their youth, and exhaustion generally follows.  So many parents will just want to give up.  Adolescent alcohol and drug treatment seems beyond the breaking point.

Although it is logical to make an attempt at solving a problem, procrastination takes over for most parents of substance abusers due to stigma.  “What will the extended family/friends/neighbors think?”  When they get past that hindering feeling and call an alcohol and drug treatment center, they learn about the time and emotion involved and put it off again.  All the while, their teens are going further down a road toward alcoholism or drug addiction, crime, injury, and possibly death.  Time is of the essence.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles offers telemedicine as an answer to both the stigma and time issues.  Teens can attend counseling sessions via video conference from home, using a computer with a webcam.  Parents can attend family meetings in the same manner.  We even have the technology to conduct group sessions over a secured internet connection.  This cuts the time and cost of travel to our locations, and saves you the need to explain the daily family trips to others.

Our providers use the TherapyLiveVisit application, powered by MDLiveCare, which works in any web browser.  If you have a computer with internet access and a webcam, you can use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or any other browser to access the application.  LiveVisit operates behind several layers of encryption, so you can be certain that your consultations will be completely confidential.  

The term “telemedicine” encompasses all forms of health care including mental health treatment and addiction treatment.  In many cases of youth alcohol abuse and drug abuse, there are co-occurring mental health disorders that had gone previously undetected.  Tarzana Treatment Centers is recognized as a leader in providing mental health treatment to adolescents.  Our telemedicine staff includes addiction counselors and mental health professionals, as well as medical professionals.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependence, drug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Online Mental Health Counseling

by James Heller 31. December 2009 12:45
Online mental health counseling provides many benefits for those who need mental health treatment and have busy schedules.  This includes individuals with minor problems to moderate disorders.  And while some may still need to pay a visit to the office of a mental health professional, online mental health treatment allows for more of them to get the help they need.

Most who seek mental health counseling do so for relatively minor and temporary issues that occur in life.  Marital and family issues can be disruptive and overwhelming in daily life and need to be addressed.  But attending marriage counseling or family therapy may seem like further disruptions rather than solutions.  Online mental health counseling minimizes the burden of getting help.

Others may have problems resulting from alcohol abuse or drug abuse, recognize it, but don’t feel the need for alcohol and drug treatment.  Online mental health counseling can help with substance abuse counseling when individuals turn to alcohol or drugs as a solution to problems.

And for those who currently utilize outpatient mental health treatment services, using the internet to access counseling from home helps in several ways.  They save money on gas or public transportation, for one example.  And since online counseling sessions can be saved to their local computer, they can review when questions arise instead of waiting for the next session.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles has been diligent in our efforts to maintain the highest technological standards available.  By staying up to date with the latest hardware and software, and maintaining exacting standards to comply with HIPAA laws, we are always ready to offer the latest forms of treatment to our patients.  We plan to use our technology to provide online treatment to many of our patients in the near future.

It is important to do diligent research when seeking mental health treatment on the internet.  There are many resources, but only a small percentage of them can provide qualified and secure services.  A lot of them do not even offer secure services from certified mental health professionals.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides mental health treatment as part of our commitment to integrated behavioral healthcare in alcohol and drug treatment.  If you or a loved one needs help for alcohol dependence or drug addiction with co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

E Therapy

by James Heller 28. December 2009 14:21
E-Therapy is the term generally given to online mental health treatment.  It is the not-so-new means of treating individuals with mental health disorders.  And as technology and security has improved, so has the potential for more individuals to use this type of treatment.

E-Therapy emerged in the late 1990s as a means of convenient and simple therapy over the internet for minor issues.  Early on, legal and confidentiality issues prevented online psychotherapy and psychology.  Only basic life problems and marital counseling was available.

With more secure online applications and better access to the internet, E-Therapy has grown to include even some major mental health issues like depression and anxiety.  So many more patients in outpatient mental health treatment can now access a lot of the services from home.

Conventional treatment providers are now working towards providing mental health treatment over the internet.  Centers that have kept up with the latest technologies will certainly find it easier to make the move to E-Therapy.  With the security and technology already in place, it will only require a few steps rather than a large leap, technologically speaking.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles has been diligent in our efforts to maintain the highest technological standards available.  By staying up to date with the latest hardware and software, and maintaining exacting standards to comply with HIPAA laws, we are always ready to offer the latest forms of treatment to our patients.  We plan to use our technology to provide online treatment to many of our patients in the near future.

The excerpt below is from a post on eHow.com that gives advice to those seeking E-Therapy.  The points of advice, whether on purpose or not, also point out some advantages to this form of mental health treatment.

eTherapy is one of the fastest growing aspects of the mental health industry, and involves seeking counseling for various mental illnesses online. Rather than meeting a therapist in his office, you can work out your problems from the privacy of your own home, using digital communication. However, you have to be committed to eTherapy in order for it to work for you.
