TeleHEALTH

About Telepsychiatry

Telehealth is the delivery of clinical services through electronic communications. Victory Bay utilizes a HIPAA-compliant video platform to provide recovery services and programming to clients.

Therapy is well-suited for telehealth. At its core, talk therapy is a conversation between therapist and patient. It doesn’t require much more than time and a place to see a therapist. While some may prefer to undergo therapy in person, it’s by no means required. And sometimes, it’s impractical.

We offer telehealth services for both individual therapy and group therapy for our outpatient drug and alcohol rehab program. Illness, transportation issues, and busy work schedules should not get in the way of prioritizing your recovery. We developed telehealth as a solution for busy adults who need to be able to balance their recovery and their personal life.

Telehealth, offers patients three significant
benefits over regular in-office meetings.
