COVID-19 has taken the world by surprise. It has taxed our coping skills and shaken our sense of safety. At this time more than ever, behavioral healthcare services are needed for individuals struggling with an eating disorder.
Eating disorder treatment provides connection, communication, and healing for anyone who is struggling with triggers, which may be intensified during these stressful times. But is it possible to get what you need—at a distance? It is.
Introducing Telehealth Behavioral Healthcare Services from Center for Discovery for intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization levels of care.
Safety has always come first at our centers nationwide. During this unprecedented time created by the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we are taking extra precautions to keep people safe and well.
In addition to keeping our residential treatment programs open in safe, clean environments, we now offer telehealth programs in select regions as an alternate to in-person outpatient treatment. This flexible option ensures continuity of care for patients from the comfort and convenience of their home.
Our telehealth program follows the same programming as our in-person outpatient programs, including one-on-one sessions with your therapist and dietician, group sessions, and family programming. Since patients will be at home, they will prepare their own meals and will have opportunities to participate in supported meals or snacks via teleconference.
Here’s what you can expect:
• Therapeutic visits via the Zoom platform or other telecommunication platform that meets HIPPA compliance requirements
• 2-way, live interactive telephone and/or digital video communication
• Medically necessary treatment with licensed members of your treatment team while reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other contagious illness
The telehealth program is covered by most insurance – check with your provider or call us at 877-649-1396 and we will assist you.
Participation is easy. All you need is:
• An electronic device with video capabilities
• A quiet, private space
Don’t postpone the treatment you need today. Treatment is and always has been about developing healthy ways to cope. We want to make it easy for you to be well during uncertain these times. Call us today for more information on Discovery Telehealth Behavioral Healthcare.
