Telemedicine Treatment for Addiction:
Counseling and Addressing Key Social Issues
Science has shown that addiction is a chronic relapsing brain disease. If you overuse alcohol or drugs, you already know how difficult it is to stop. Treatment requires a team of specialists working with you to achieve sobriety and a meaningful life. Counseling and behavioral health therapy are essential components of treating addiction. Creating supportive social structures that promote healthy behavior are critical to recovery.
Integrated Addiction Care (IAC) Associates is offering tele-counseling services with a focus on mental health and social determinants of health. We believe that addressing medical/addiction issues is necessary for recovery- but that alone is not enough. Durable recovery requires addressing mental health and social issues as well. This is a critical part of our addiction medicine treatment program. Telemedicine uses technology that is widely available (smart phones, tablets or PC’s). Payment for these services can be made using TennCare, Medicare, many commercial insurance plans or with personal funds. Call us at (901) 746-9438 (Mon-Fri, 8 AM to 5 PM) to get started today.
