What is eHealth (online therapy)
In healthcare, we are increasingly using digital means to offer treatment. We call this eHealth.
eHealth can complement traditional 'face to face' contacts, but full online treatment is also possible. By means of online (self-help) modules and video calling you improve your health and you also have contact with you at home practitioner.
We think it is important that you always have access to the care you need. That's why we offer (parts of-) the outpatient treatment online. We use various applications and your own patient portal to offer this care. Communication via email runs via the secure healthcare email platform. Your practitioner will inform you further about this.
Advantages of online treatment
In times when it is more difficult to come to a physical location, eHealth can offer a solution. This way you have access to the care you need at any time. Working independently also stimulates you to gain more confidence in your own abilities, so that you feel strengthened on the road to recovery. Other benefits of online treatment are:
- You often have shorter conversations and can work independently more easily.
- You have more time to focus on your recovery.
- You spend less time and costs traveling.
- Anywhere with a connection access to treatment.
- Every aspect of the treatment is possible online. Intake interviews can also be conducted online.
What does an eHealth program look like?
Online care is possible for individual contacts and for group sessions. For the individual interviews, you and your practitioner investigate what is best for your treatment suits. This can also take place (partly) via video calling.
We find support from others who have had similar experiences important for a good recovery. There are also group sessions online take place. When you qualify for an online group, this will be discussed with you.
In addition to the conversations, we expect an active role in it performing reading and writing assignments. These can be exchanged via the patient portal or secure email. We also have a spacious library where you can learn more about addiction, recovery and the 12 steps.
