Legal & Regulatory Considerations of Telehealth in Addiction Treatment
Though telehealth programs are held to many of the same standards as in-person treatment options, there are a few key elements to consider.
With any curriculum, platform, or program, there are licensing requirements for legal permission for their utilization. Ensuring that all of these requirements are met is a great indication of a quality telehealth program.
Confidentiality for both the therapist and participant are crucial elements to the success of substance use treatment. Ensuring that both you and the counselor are in locations where sensitive information will not be compromised is a factor to consider throughout the telehealth process.
Unfortunately, with the advancements in helpful technology, the advancements in methods to breach these secured systems increases as well. Ensuring that there is a secure online connection along with trusted devices is an important factor to consider in telehealth.
Whether online or in person, substance use treatment can provide the tools needed for success in sobriety.
