What Is Online Rehab and How Can It Help?
Some of the crippling consequences addicts face on any given day include isolation, loneliness, depression, shame and fear. These feelings are just some of the reasons why individuals hesitate to seek treatment. When an addict has a moment of willingness, they only have a small window of opportunity to get the help they need. Placing addicts into a social environment, such as a rehabilitation facility, is crucial in forming early recovery connections.
The pandemic has caused the complete opposite of connection and socialisation. Uncertainty of the future, lockdowns and restrictions have forced those in addictive addiction and those trying to remain clean and sober further into isolation and despair. The New York Times mentions in a recent article “Addiction is often referred to as a disease of isolation, and overcoming that challenge has only become more difficult during a pandemic that has forced people indoors — in some cases to live lonely lives, with drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with the stress.”
Recent studies show that binge drinking and process addictions, such as gambling, have increased due to the pandemic. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mentions a “concerning acceleration of opioid-related overdoses last year”. All in all, substance abuse, relapse and binge using is on the rise and access to inpatient facilities is declining, leaving little to no options for those struggling.
Furthermore, many drug and alcohol rehabs have had to restructure their programs by reducing inpatient admissions, stopping visits from family and friends and removing outings from their schedules.
Other facilities having taken their treatment program online, making a chance at recovery accessible to those who need it at a fraction of the cost.
What is online rehab?
Online rehab is an addiction treatment program, the same program used in an inpatient setting; only it is delivered to clients virtually.
What does online rehab offer?
Just like a traditional inpatient program, online rehab offers clients a structured schedule filled with a variety of therapeutic and spiritual modalities, from the comfort of their own home.
Certified and licensed online facilities provide 24/7 support, one on one and group therapy, interactive educational sessions, meditation and yoga and 12 step meetings, all of which will provide clients with the skills and tools needed to begin and maintain a sober lifestyle.
What are the benefits of online rehab?
Clients can attend online rehab from the privacy and safety of their own home. Schedules are often flexible so individuals can continue participating in work, study, and their family’s needs. All you will need is stable internet access!
Online addiction treatment offers the luxury of privacy as clients do not need to check into an inpatient facility. Reputable facilities should use state of the art, high-security virtual technology to maintain their clients’ safety and anonymity. Clinical staff must adhere to all individuals’ confidentiality by ensuring they are in a private space when delivering the program.
3. Community Support
Online rehab does not offer the same face-to-face social interaction all humans crave; however, clients can still interact with the clinical team and other clients. Online group sessions and 12 step meetings allow clients to share their progress with their peers, show support to one another and listen to the stories of other recovering addicts who have gone before them.
Seasons Bali, concerned with the lack of addiction recovery resources available globally for those seeking treatment, has turned their aftercare app ‘SeasonsCare’ into an online platform called ‘Home-Hab’.
The clinical team at Seasons Bali has designed and put together a comprehensive four, eight and twelve-week program that includes daily therapeutic activities and weekly online individual counselling. The ‘Home-Hab’ program will enable users to identify substance misuse and abuse issues and begin taking steps to live a life of abstinence, all from the comfort of their own home.
All members will receive access to the App and following an assessment will be paired with a qualified counsellor to provide personal and professional support.
The SeasonsCare App provides the following:
- Daily check-in
- Weekly CBT sessions and activities –
- Journal Therapy
- One individual counselling session per week
- Reminder notifications
- Location Check-in (optional)
- The App is for 12 weeks and can be accessed either as 12 weeks upfront or four-week blocks.
