Addiction counseling serves several purposes in drug treatment
. Simplified, it first provides guidance to patients in how to live without drugs, followed by being a resource for aftercare to treatment. Online drug counseling can benefit patients by delivering these services to them in their homes.
Addiction counselors must always have information at their fingertips, ready to provide it when needed by a patient. As a guide they can offer writing assignments or educational materials, and as a resource provide a list of sober living homes or medical facilities. Without a computer a sufficient variety of material would be cumbersome and hard to organize, especially in Southern California.
It is both time-saving and critical that addiction counselors save resources in a computer address book and on their browsers. Anyone who has been a counselor knows that when a patient agrees to enter sober living for aftercare, time is of the essence. So the information must be retrieved quickly so the patient can make immediate plans and commit to them.
Online drug treatment
adds a benefit for counselors with knowledge in technology. Individual and group counseling sessions can be conducted over secure links. Counselors can send files to patients during sessions, as well as receive them. Patients can also go back and review sessions after completion, unlike live sessions that are finished when they’re finished.
