Eleanor Health - Hickory Now Accepting Virtual Patients In Statesville, North Carolina

NC based addiction treatment center Eleanor Health - Hickory is reaching out to the wider community to announce that they are now accepting virtual patients in Statesville North Carolina and the surrounding areas. Eleanor Health - Hickory provides care for opioid, alcohol, nicotine and other issues around substance misuse.

As the treatment center explains, the daily lives of millions of people have been disrupted since the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak. Restrictions have been put in place by health authorities and governments that dictate how people can work, travel, shop and socialize. While these measures are necessary to keep people safe and control the spread of the virus, these restrictions have created several critical problems.

One such problem is the fact that people who have trouble with substance abuse cannot get addiction treatment, especially as the number of confirmed cases increases and restrictions are tightened as a result. Given the current circumstances, some might assume that this is not the right time to get help for their addiction. However, the truth is quite different. Not only is there no bad time to start addiction treatment, the potential for stress caused by the current situation means that this might actually be the best time to start addiction treatment.

Still, the question of how exactly addicts are to seek treatment remains. As part of their response to the COVID-19 crisis, Eleanor Health - Hickory has been taking steps to continue providing treatment while protecting the safety of both their patients and staff alike. Extending those steps, the treatment center is proud to announce that they are now offering telehealth services for new patients. This means that residents of Statesville can now start and receive the same addiction treatment available at Eleanor Health clinic locations from the comfort and safety of their homes — or any other location that is convenient for them.

Addicts seeking treatment can now use a computer, phone or any internet-capable device to access Eleanor Health’s private and secure online intake system to virtually take the first steps of their journey through recovery, including virtual registration, virtual medical and nursing assessments, virtual MAT induction for Suboxone, Buprenorphine, and Vivitrol, virtual clinical and recovery partner assessments and virtual psychiatric evaluation. Patients will also receive access to virtual ongoing care with their Eleanor Health Team, such as their MAT, psychiatric medication management, nurse care navigation, individual and group therapy and peer support.

According to Eleanor Health, while COVID-19 has caused a change in how they provide addiction treatment services, it has not affected the care and compassion they show their patients. They are proud to state that the Eleanor Health mission, “to help people with addiction lead amazing lives,” persists regardless of the manner of treatments. Eleanor Health - Hickory assures both existing and prospective patients that they are committed to being there to support those who rely on them during these challenging times, and they invite all interested parties to contact them now to start working on their recovery. Anyone who is unsure about committing to treatment with Eleanor Health can also try them out by joining one of the treatment center’s free virtual support groups or booking a free 15-minute consultation.

The services provided by Eleanor Health have earned them high praise from their patients. On their Facebook page, the treatment center has a rating of 5 out of 5 Stars, for instance. In their recommendation, Nzinga Harrison shares their thoughts succinctly by saying, “You will have a compassionate, supportive personalized experience here.” Meanwhile, on the Google Platform, Mark Walker writes in his 5-Star review, “The Eleanor difference that I receive in my treatment compared to treatments at methadone clinic and integrated healthcare is that, every visit, I leave the office with my dignity and respect intact and always feeling better about life!”
