Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the use of technology to deliver health care services remotely. Through digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers, your provider at Axxis Med Management and Primary Care can continue to support your recovery from a distance, so you never have to be without doctor-supervised support.

Why is telemedicine important in addiction recovery?

Addiction recovery isn’t a linear process. When you leave your inpatient stay at Axxis Med Management and Primary Care, you still need a supportive team who cares about your recovery. 

That’s why your provider ensures that you continue to receive individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management as you enter your post-inpatient treatment life. Continuing with telemedicine treatment can help reduce your chances of relapsing and keep you on track to reaching your recovery goals.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Above all, telemedicine gives you access to high-quality health care when you need it most. Telemedicine offers many advantages over in-person care, including:

Convenience

Telemedicine is especially convenient for people with busy lives, especially if you lack reliable transportation or childcare.

Comfort

Many people feel stressed and uncomfortable visiting their doctor or mental health professional. You may feel more comfortable and open to talking when you’re in a setting where you feel relaxed and free of worry.

Cost

You don’t have to pay for gas, tolls, or childcare when you opt for telemedicine services.

Time

With telemedicine, you never have to sit in a waiting room to see your provider, making it more efficient than an in-person visit.

Depending on your addiction recovery plan, your provider may recommend telemedicine as supplementary to your in-person visits, or your plan might involve fully remote care.

What is included in telemedicine?

Many of the services that your Axxis Med Management and Primary Care provider delivers in person can also be performed via telemedicine. Some of the most common telemedicine services provided by the clinic include:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Rational-emotive behavioral therapy
  • Cognitive restructuring and re-framing
  • Medication management

As you continue your telemedicine sessions with your Axxis Med Management and Primary Care provider, the team can reevaluate and restructure your individualized plan to suit your recovery needs.
