With drug use at epidemic levels throughout the country, treatment programs are overwhelmed with people in need of help. Telehealth platforms provide programs like GIA Miami a new way to communicate with patients to provide support and therapy. These types of remote approaches are becoming more common in the healthcare industry in general, particularly in the age of COVID-19.
Telehealth — sometimes referred to as “telemedicine” — connects people in need of treatment to addiction specialists that can provide it remotely using technology, specifically the internet and telephone.

At GIA, we understand that addiction results from a physiologic disorder, just like any other disease.

We use highly personalized medication-assisted treatment — or “MAT” — therapy to address the chemical imbalances that cause cravings to help our patients achieve sobriety and minimize the chances of relapse.
