Some individuals who need drug treatment
have responsibilities in life, such as work or family, which take the option of residential treatment
away from them. Or they may not require the controlled setting that residential treatment provides. Outpatient treatment
is a valid option for these individuals.
Advancements in technology and treatment methodologies have also made another option available to these patients. They can access treatment from home using their computers. This gives patients the opportunity to receive the treatment they need, and save on travel time and fuel. All of this can be done with no loss of quality in treatment.
One unique benefit that comes with online drug treatment, or telemedicine
, is the ability for patients to review counseling sessions after they occur. Patients in drug treatment sometimes miss important comments in groups and individual sessions because there is so much to be learned. Reviews of the sessions can be an extra tool for preventing relapse during treatment.
Online drug treatment can begin with an outpatient medical detoxification
program, if necessary. It adds accountability for the patient. Drug detox
requires a certain amount of supervision even with the mildest cases. So if outpatient drug treatment is needed, home-based treatment over the internet is a viable option.
