Across the world, the COVID-19 outbreak continues to disrupt daily life for millions of people. To keep people safe and control the spread of the virus, health authorities and government agencies continue to put restrictions in place that impact how people work, travel, shop and socialize.

As more restrictions roll out and concerns arise, there may be some confusion about what all of this means for addiction treatment. Given the current circumstances, some people may assume that this isn’t the right time to get help for their addiction. In reality, there is no bad day to start your recovery.

As part of our response to COVID-19, Eleanor Health is taking steps to continue providing treatment while protecting our members and staff alike. In support of those efforts, we are pleased to announce that we extended our telehealth services to now include virtual intakes for new members.

North Carolina residents can now start and receive the same addiction treatment available at Eleanor Health clinic locations from the comfort of their homes or any location convenient for them.

Using a computer, phone, or any internet-capable device, you can access our private and secure online intake system to virtually take the first steps of your recovery journey, including:

  • Virtual Registration

  • Virtual Medical and Nursing Assessments

  • Virtual MAT Induction for Suboxone, Buprenorphine, and Vivitrol

  • Virtual Clinical and Recovery Partner Assessments

  • Virtual Psychiatric Evaluation

  • Virtual Ongoing Care with your Eleanor Health Team to include MAT, psychiatric medication management, nurse care navigation, individual and group therapy and peer support.

Although COVID-19 has changed how we provide addiction treatment services, it has not affected our level of care and compassion. The Eleanor Health mission, “to help people with addiction lead amazing lives,” persists nonetheless. As always, we are committed to being here to support you through every stage of your recovery journey during these challenging times. Contact us today to set up a virtual intake and start your #RecoveryForLife.

Not sure if you’re quite ready to start treatment with Eleanor Health? Try us out by joining one of our free virtual support groups or booking a free 15-minute consultation.
