What is telehealth?
Telehealth is the delivery of medical and mental health services using technology. Over the past decade, many substance use and mental health providers have started offering telehealth to their clients by providing therapy sessions or medication visits over the phone or using video conferencing. Since the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020, most mental health providers have switched to exclusively offering telehealth for the time being.
