A virtual outpatient treatment program like the one at New Bridge Foundation® can give you access to the level of care you need while you receive treatment from the comfort and privacy of your home.

The Benefits of Virtual Outpatient Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder
When it comes to treatment for alcohol addiction, there are many benefits to outpatient care in general and to virtual outpatient care in particular. Among these are:
Virtual Outpatient Treatment Is Less Time Consuming than Residential Treatment
Outpatient treatment is a less structured and less time-consuming form of treatment. Not every individual who requires treatment needs the structure and safety of residential treatment. For those individuals who can be successful in an outpatient program, virtual outpatient treatment means that they are accessing our alcohol addiction treatment through our telehealth network. This involves the use of videoconferencing, a telephone, or other means of virtual interaction to get the treatment and care needed.
Virtual Outpatient Care Provides the Same Quality of Addiction Treatment
You may fear that you might miss out on the “full experience” if you choose virtual outpatient treatment for alcohol addiction. However, virtual outpatient care offers the same quality of care as any of our residential programs. At New Bridge Foundation®, you will have access to services such as:
- Individual, family, and group counseling
- Attention to co-occurring disorders
- Specialized services for vets, those in the military, and LBGTQ+ individuals
- Trauma-informed care
- Health and wellness education
- Free aftercare for life
Virtual Outpatient Treatment Provides a Comprehensive Support System
While it is true that a residential and in-person program puts you in an environment where you can build strong, lasting relationships with staff and peers, you can also build a support network in virtual outpatient addiction treatment. The fact is, for many people, the great majority of the social bonds we create in our lives at present are built and maintained virtually. In our virtual outpatient treatment program, you will have all the tools you need to develop a sober support system while achieving genuine, long-term sobriety.
In virtual outpatient care, you can continue to enhance your support system and recovery long after your initial rehab period is over. For instance, you can join a local support group and get plugged into our aftercare program. There are also resources available such as sober living houses in the area you live in, if you need to transition to a safe supportive place to live.
In a Virtual Outpatient Treatment Program, You Can Receive Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
Alcohol addiction and mental disorders often go hand-in-hand. For instance, if you suffer from anxiety, PTSD, or depression, you may turn to alcohol as a form of self-medication. Likewise, alcohol abuse can also bring on symptoms of mental health issues, creating a dangerous cycle of abuse.
At New Bridge Foundation®, our trained professionals understand how difficult it is to live with a co-occurring disorder which is also referred to as a dual diagnosis. As part of your treatment in our virtual outpatient treatment program, you will learn coping strategies that will assist you in learning how to manage your mental health symptoms.
A Virtual Outpatient Treatment Program Allows You to Maintain Your Daily Routine
Do you have commitments at home, school, or work? Even if these commitments are also virtual, they take time and must be scheduled around. Virtual outpatient treatment at New Bridge Foundation® gives you the ability to access a top-quality addiction treatment program around your schedule. We have morning, afternoon, and evening program sessions to choose from.
