Virginia Looks to Unconventional Methods to Address Substance Abuse

Despite there being over 14,000 addiction treatment and detox facilities in the U.S., rates of recovery remain low with only about 10 perfect of addicts getting help. Numerous factors have contributed to the low recovery rates, including fear of withdrawals, lack of access, prohibitively high cost of treatment, and so on. Hoping to improve rates of recovery, the state of Virginia has begun exploring alternative and even rather unconventional methods by which to offer substance abuse support. One method that’s being tested throughout the state is called telemedicine, which could increase the treatment capacity of Virginia rehabs by allowing patients to connect with addiction treatment and healthcare professionals via video chat.
