Telehealth and Online Mental Health Resources During COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic threatens not only health, life, and the economy. It threatens recovery from substance abuse.

When an individual is ready to tackle their substance use disorder, time is of the essence. Any delay might derail their willingness or desire to abstain from alcohol or drugs. Once treatment has started, any interruption might derail the rehab process. And even after rehab, aftercare services such as therapy and support groups are needed to help prevent relapse.

The COVID-19 pandemic costs time, taxes willpower, and denies access.
