What Is Telehealth?
Learn about the benefits of telehealth
Covington Behavioral Health Hospital is a premier mental health treatment center that improves the lives of the individuals who turn to us in their time of need. We specialize in helping adolescents and adults build a strong foundation for healing that lasts long after their time at our facility in Covington, Louisiana.
Making an in-person visit to our center isn’t always possible, so we have widened access to our services by offering telehealth solutions that bring our programs to your home. The definition of telehealth is the secure use of technology to deliver patient care without the patient and health provider having to be in the same room or location. At Covington Behavioral Health, we offer several telehealth services to ensure that our patients get the care they need, including:
- Free telehealth assessments
- Telehealth intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adults
- Televisitation for patients participating in our inpatient programs
By offering telehealth services, we add more convenience and flexibility to the individualized, patient-focused care we provide at our center in Covington, Louisiana. Our goal is to eliminate the barriers that may be keeping you or someone you love from seeking the professional care you deserve.
Telehealth programming at Covington Behavioral Health Hospital in Covington, LA
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Covington Behavioral Health supports adults age 18 and older who are struggling with various mental health concerns and substance use disorders. Some adults step down to our IOP after completing a higher level of care, while others enter treatment directly at the IOP level without having completed other programming.
When it isn’t possible to participate in our IOP on-site at our center in Covington, Louisiana, you or your loved one can receive care through our telehealth therapy services. Telehealth psychiatry takes place through virtual communication using a videoconferencing tool, much like Skype or FaceTime, allowing you the flexibility to work treatment around your lifestyle and schedule.
You can use your smartphone, laptop, or computer to engage in our telehealth IOP from the location that is most convenient for you. Transportation, childcare, and conflicting schedules are less of a barrier with the availability of our telehealth services.
Telehealth visitation at Covington Behavioral Health Hospital in Covington, LA
Seeking inpatient care for a mental health or substance use concern can be an arduous journey, so we encourage our patients to nurture their relationships with their loved ones whenever clinically appropriate. Those bonds can strengthen and uplift you in difficult moments, helping you maintain your progress throughout your time in treatment at Covington Behavioral Health.
Sometimes, friends and family are unable to travel to our center in Covington, Louisiana, whether because of transportation limitations, lack of childcare, or conflicting work schedules. We offer telehealth visitation to help our patients stay in touch with those they’re closest to, removing the barriers that keep them from remaining connected while receiving inpatient care.
Our virtual visitation services allow friends and family members to stay connected with our patients from the safety and comfort of their own homes — or wherever is most convenient for them. If you have any questions about the televisitation services, tele-assessment process, or telehealth programming we offer at Covington Behavioral Health Hospital, please contact us at your convenience. A knowledgeable member of our team can answer any questions you might have about the telehealth solutions we provide.
