For individuals who need treatment for substance abuse in California but who do not have the time or resources to commit to a residential treatment program, New Bridge Foundation is proud to offer telehealth services. Taking part in substance abuse treatment remotely allows our clients to get the same quality of care that they would in face-to-face treatment from the comfort and privacy of home.
It has never been easier to receive treatment for substance abuse in the San Francisco Bay Area. Additionally, since the services are virtual, they can also be accessed anywhere in the state of California.

What Are Telehealth Services for Substance Abuse?
It is not a stretch to say that in this day and age, many services that were once provided in-person can be found in some form online or virtually. Substance abuse treatment is no exception. Many types of tools have been carefully designed to provide individuals with access to treatment and a virtual support network.
Telehealth services are an example of one of these tools. The term “telehealth” refers to services that are delivered remotely via the internet or telephone. Because of how advanced these types of communication technology have become, telehealth services have become a familiar, effective, and accepted form of substance abuse treatment.
The Benefits of Telehealth Services
Individuals who take advantage of telehealth services in substance abuse treatment programs like the ones at New Bridge Foundation experience several distinct benefits. Among these are:
- Clients who use telehealth services can access treatment from anywhere they wish.
- Telehealth treatment is flexible allowing you to choose a morning, afternoon, or evening program.
- Clients can attend meetings or participate in counseling sessions without facing barriers to treatment, like transportation.
- Treatment in telehealth services for substance abuse observe the same rules in regard to client privacy as those observed in an in-person environment.
At New Bridge Foundation, we have put so much time and care into designing our telehealth services because we feel that everyone who needs substance abuse treatment should have access to the highest quality care. Telehealth services are an excellent way of removing barriers to treatment, especially for those who live far from the San Francisco Bay Area or who do not live in urban centers and have less access to quality substance abuse treatment.
Telehealth Services for Substance Abuse at New Bridge Foundation
For most individuals struggling with substance abuse, a strong support network and recovery community form the foundation of long-term sobriety. Because of social distancing requirements, however, social isolation is on the rise, as is drug and alcohol use. Isolation, the fear of what is to come, and the financial hardship and uncertainty that have resulted from the pandemic can all contribute to relapse or an increase in substance abuse. To avoid these adverse outcomes, more and more people are opting for telehealth services at mental health and addiction treatment facilities like New Bridge Foundation.
