Why should someone with a substance use disorder consider telehealth?

Telehealth uses modern technology, like tablets, computers, and smartphones, to securely share your medical information over the internet. It lets Dr. Becker evaluate your health, answer questions, and offer treatment recommendations without meeting in person.

If you have opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder, telehealth services can save you time and hassle. You can schedule your appointment before clocking in rather than taking the day off of work and calling out sick. This saves you the embarrassment of sharing your personal medical information with your employer and reduces the stigma associated with treatment.

What types of medical issues can benefit from telehealth?

At Apex Medical Wellness, Dr. Becker uses telehealth to diagnose, treat, and manage various medical issues, including:

  • Alcohol use disorder
  • Opioid use disorder
  • Integrative pain management
  • Treatment of chemotherapy side effects
  • Cannabis medicine

Patients can also receive life coaching or enroll in enrichment programs via telehealth. Life coaching teaches you how to manage life and work challenges, while enrichment programs educate you on how to adjust to your new life of sobriety.

What are some of the advantages of telehealth?

The main advantage of telehealth is convenience. You conduct your appointment from work or home with no travel interruption to your day.

Another advantage is the ability to maintain social distance while still getting your health needs met. You don’t have to wait in a clinic with other patients or come into physical contact with staff members.

Should you have a condition that makes travel to the office difficult or care for small children or an elderly loved one, you can stay home but still visit with a highly qualified medical expert.

The Apex Medical Wellness telehealth platform is easy to use, even for those who aren’t technologically savvy. There’s no need to download specific software or create an account. You use any phone, tablet, or computer that has a camera and microphone.

Are telehealth visits secure?

During a telehealth appointment, you can meet with Dr. Becker from anywhere. All data transferred during the visit is encrypted. Sessions are anonymous, and no information shared at the appointment is stored.

Apex Medical Wellness adheres to all HIPAA, PIPEDA, and GDPR data privacy requirements.
