In response to the ongoing changes due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Glenbeigh is offering resources and information to help people in recovery sustain their recovery while protecting the safety of our patients, alumni, families, friends, staff and the entire recovery community.
Glenbeigh’s Virtual Recovery Care
Telehealth and virtual assessment options are currently being offered through Glenbeigh’s six outpatient treatment centers in order to keep our patients connected with Glenbeigh’s world-class care.
For people still in the early stages of recovery, social distancing and stay at home requirements may challenge your recovery efforts. With advances in virtual technology, you can use your computer, tablet, mobile phone or any other camera equipped device with an internet connection to participate in Glenbeigh’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) and Aftercare programming from your home.
To keep it simple, Telehealth services are offered on the same schedule as in-person programming. Telehealth sessions provide the same patient-centered treatment guided by Glenbeigh’s compassionate, highly educated and credentialed staff members.
Glenbeigh’s Telehealth conferencing platform is HIPAA/PIPEDA compliant and offers high quality conferencing. The same guidelines apply as in-person meetings where the use of last names is not required.
Virtual assessments are being offered by appointment. Call any of Glenbeigh’s outpatient centers for more information or to schedule your appointment.
Glenbeigh's Virtual Family Education Programming
Glenbeigh believes alcoholism and addiction is a family disease. During this challenging time that our nation is facing, we have been unable to offer the traditional family programming on Sunday's. Glenbeigh is introducing an on-line meeting for family members of our patients with one of Glenbeigh's experienced counselors. Currently, virtual programming is offered each Friday from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM and Sunday's starting at 1:30 PM. Programming will provide family members with educational information and time for questions. Please provide your email address to the admissions department so an invitation to the meeting can be sent to you. Thank you for your continued support as we work through COVID-19 safety precautions.
