Addiction Campuses' Turning Point Launches Telehealth For Substance Use Disorder

SOUTHAVEN, Miss., April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Turning Point, an Addiction Campuses mental and behavioral health treatment facility is now providing Telehealth for Mississippi residents with substance use disorder. At a time when many people are restricted from travel and social distancing is the new normal, Telehealth enables patients to readily access a psychologist or therapist in real-time from the privacy of their own home.

"Amid growing concerns over the Coronavirus and need for social distancing, resources like Telehealth are vital," says Addiction Campuses Director of Compliance Scott Connors. "Addiction is a disease of isolation and it's more important than ever to keep patients engaged and connected to the people and programs that help them gain and maintain long term sobriety."

Telehealth provides safe, high-quality, competent and convenient health care to Mississippi patients in need of long and short-term connectivity, via computers and smart mobile devices. The appointments are confidential and a Health Savings Account (HSA) can be used to cover the cost of Telehealth copays, whether patients have health insurance or pay privately.

Telehealth can provide periodic support and supervision during and after detox, specifically for chronic withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, depressed mood and irritability. Services include psychiatrist visits, along with individual psychotherapy and counseling for substance use disorder.

Addiction Campuses is committed to the safety and security of our team members, patients, and their families. We are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and have implemented appropriate precautionary measures to help ensure we protect the health and welfare of all those we serve.

Treatment programs available at Turning Point include Residential Detox, Inpatient, Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programs.
