Telehealth has emerged as one of the true blessings of both the advent of high-speed internet and the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to telehealth, individuals can receive medical care in various settings. One of the best uses for telehealth has proven to be behavioral health and addiction counseling. At UpHealth Behavioral, we’re proud to offer a robust telehealth service.
UpHealth Behavioral has been using telehealth for years, and that use expanded greatly during the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we have ample experience in this area, and we can help any patient utilize telehealth to receive the treatment they need and deserve.

Patients will get access to the same therapist they would have access to if they attended a session in person. They will benefit from first-rate, world-class therapy from our wide range of clinical professionals. As such, patients can expect to receive excellent treatment that helps them overcome their addiction.
Finally, patients can expect to reap all the benefits of telehealth. They’ll be able to get therapy from the comfort of their own home or office and do so on a schedule that works for them.
