Online Treatments

Online treatment services provide the opportunity for alcohol and drug addiction treatment by trained experts via the Internet, in a way that is convenient and private. This has the potential to bring treatment to individuals who are unable to access traditional treatment programs or who want to strengthen recovery after completing a traditional treatment program. It provides many of the benefits of traditional treatment approaches, including group sessions led by addiction counselors, peer support and tools for recovery.
