At The Lakehouse Recovery Center, we have made the safety of our clients a priority during the latest health crisis, and we are happy to announce our virtual outpatient program (IOP).
With the use of cutting edge technology, we can now provide state licensed and accredited Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) levels of care for Substance Abuse and Dual-Diagnosis via the internet.
Recovery Advocates, LLC, d/b/a The Lakehouse Recovery Center, in response to the Coronavirus Crisis, has created a statewide online Intensive Outpatient treatment program for Substance Abuse online.
The program offers comprehensive Telehealth care via the internet to clients. Anyone, anywhere who has access to a computer, tablet or smartphone can now access treatment, though they may be hundreds of miles from our center.
What Is Our Online Program?
For our online outpatient program, clients may utilize insurance for services if applicable. Without bricks and mortar overhead costs for our Virtual Outpatient Program is considerably lower than Residential Programs as well as other non-virtual Outpatient Programs.
Referred to generally as “Telemedicine,” this has been limited to individual therapy and psychiatric evaluations, but now, the Recovery Advocates model will offer comprehensive non-residential treatment services to men and women throughout the state of California.
Until now, these services, which typically include individual and group therapy, psychiatric services, case management, drug testing and varied workshops, are only available to those who can visit a clinical office where they are offered. But with our Virtual Outpatient Program, we are offering those same services in your home, in your sober living, wherever you have internet access.
This affords the opportunity for any client to receive the services that they need as well as reduce any safety issues or anxiety around having to enter an in-person group environment. We will be using the ZOOM app which is a HIPAA compliant platform.
HOW OUR VIRTUAL OUTPATIENT PROGRAM WORKS:
All you need is access to a Computer, Tablet or Smart Phone to get critical, clinical treatment for substance abuse.
A client contacts our Admissions Department for an assessment by calling 1-877-SOBER-07 (1-877-762-3707) or through our websites: Lakehouserecoverycenter.com or RecoveryAdvocatesUSA.com.
Client executes standard intake paper work detailing services, Rules and Regulation Agreements, HIPPA and Liability Protections, and schedules an online biopsychosocial evaluation with clinical staff.
Client is emailed a weekly schedule which he or she agrees to, along with a HIPPA compliant link to our Portal. Utilizing their home or office computer, tablet or Smart Phone, the client simply clicks on the link when ready to join either a group, an individual session with a counselor, therapist or psychiatrist, or guest lectures and a variety of entertaining recovery related workshops.
Similar to Skype or FaceTime, client and clinician will be able to see each other, face to face, via the internet. Clients can join groups as well, with each participant able to see and hear each other. Groups will be facilitated by Certified Drug & Alcohol counselors and master’s level therapists.
