Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego Offers eTherapy for a Continuum of Care
Treatment for behavioral health disorders requires therapy with trained and experienced clinicians, but most patients can’t put their lives on hold to get treatment. School, family and other responsibilities can make finding time for treatment challenging for many patients with busy lives. Others might live in rural areas or small towns without local therapy options.
For these patients, Sovereign Health of San Diego offers a telehealth option called eTherapy, a convenient way to receive treatment wherever you are.
What Is eTherapy?
eTherapy is a telehealth option that allows patients to receive therapy from qualified therapists over the internet. Patients use Zoom, a secure, HIPAA-compliant online conferencing program. After a one-time download, patients can log in and create a two-way video link with their therapist. Therapy is then conducted just like a normal, in-person session.
With Sovereign Health’s eTherapy, patients receive therapy from a master’s-level therapist in their own state. Patients might even keep the therapist they had when they were in residential treatment.
Benefits of eTherapy
eTherapy allows patients with busy lives to more easily fit therapy into their schedules. Patients can access eTherapy from anywhere that has an internet connection, from an environment that is comfortable, familiar and convenient.
Telehealth options such as eTherapy allow patients to more easily balance their recovery with their day-to-day responsibilities of school, work and family. It also makes life easier for parents, who will not be required to take time off of work, arrange childcare for younger siblings or rearrange their own schedules to drive their son or daughter to therapy.
The added convenience allows patients to more easily maintain a consistent therapy regimen to continue the progress they made in residential treatment and strengthen their recovery.
