Telemedicine Uses – Senior Mental Health and Substance Use

by James Heller 21. September 2010 14:42
Aging brings more than the typical physical problems form seniors.  Most will survive family members and friends, and face other possible losses, causing depression or anxiety.  Some, following a doctor’s orders, may risk harm with prescription drugs without knowing that they are doing so.  Telemedicine, in these cases, seems to be a very compassionate gift from the medical community.

It commonly comes with longer life that family members and friends will pass on. As their generational companion list begins to shrink, depression and loneliness is inevitable.  The regular reminders of their own mortality can also be a source of anxiety.  In these tough financial times they may also lose property through foreclosure, or be swindled by unscrupulous individuals.  

Grief and loss therapy and mental health treatment can help to minimize emotional pain, but the tendency is to decline because they don’t want to leave home or they are immobile.  The pain will not improve without talking about it.  So if they have no one to grieve with, they become more isolated, and sometimes turn to alcohol or drugs for relief.

Prescription drugs are often ordered for seniors to stabilize physical or emotional pain.  Opiate pain killers and benzodiazepines can spell trouble, though, when individuals also use alcohol, take higher doses than prescribed, or use other medications.  Isolation and substance use can feed on each other, leaving a once vibrant person alone and numb.

These are the lesser known forms of alcohol abuse and drug abuse, and can be helped with addiction treatment.  However, it is quite rare for seniors to agree to enter drug treatment for the same reasons as above.  Sadly, younger family members tend to condone substance use to “ease the pain” of aging, and don’t offer proper assistance.  Every day is a risk that tragedy will strike by accident or drug overdose.

Telemedicine has the potential to improve the golden years for many individuals.  They don’t need to leave home to get mental health treatment or drug treatment.  There are specialists in both fields who work with seniors on related issues.  Grief and loss specialists can ease individuals through these processes, minimizing the duration of emotional pain.  Addiction treatment counselors can help them to see that drugs and alcohol add to problems if they are abused, and are never the solution for emotional pain.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides online therapy for mental health and drug addiction.  Our online treatment is delivered using the LiveVisit application, powered by MDLiveCare.  One only needs a computer with a webcam connected to the internet to participate.  This makes treatment convenient, accessible, and affordable.  Security is important in treatment, so LiveVisit runs behind several layers of encryption.  Phone access is available for those without a computer.

Telemedicine at Tarzana Treatment Centers is not limited to online mental health treatment and drug addiction treatment.  We also provide online medical care.  Our goal is to see that those who need treatment can get it.

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.

Telemedicine Uses – Mental Health Treatment

by James Heller 9. September 2010 07:34
Many individuals suffer needlessly, delaying or declining treatment for mental health disorders.  A good portion of them know that they could benefit from treatment, but have fears or time constraints that prevent them from attending sessions at a treatment center.  Telemedicine may be the solution that will bring them freedom.

We all know that mental health disorders range from mild to severe cases, and all of the sufferers benefit from some form of treatment.  A grieving person may just need someone to help process feelings of loss in a few sessions, and another who suffers from social phobias can be treated with therapy or medication.  But the former may have high job demands that limit time to visit a treatment center, and the latter might not be able to leave the house out of fear.  These are only two examples that prevent those in need of treatment from getting it.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Office of Applied Sciences reported on unmet mental health treatment needs within its 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health.  About 10.6 million adults reported unmet needs for treatment.  A little over 30% of them expressed concerns labeled “Did not have time”, “Concerned about confidentiality”, and “Might cause neighbors/community to have negative opinion”.  All of these relate directly or indirectly with travel to a treatment center on a regular basis.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides telemedicine to allow this group of individuals to get treatment using video conference with a webcam and computer with internet access.  Those with little time can simply log in to a session from their home or office.  Family, friends, and neighbors will not ask questions about the sudden evening trips, and the chance of being seen at a treatment center is almost eliminated.  The TherapyLiveVisit application we use, powered by MDLiveCare, sits behind several layers of encryption, removing any concerns about security or confidentiality.

We also provide telemedicine services for medical care and addiction treatment.  You may also see these services called telehealth, telemental health, and online treatment.
