New Virtual Care Platform for Behavioral Health and Addiction Recovery Programs
Press Release from InterAct LifeLine
St. Petersburg Florida — October 18, 2023 — InterAct LifeLIne today unveiled a new Virtual Care solution for behavioral health and addiction treatment programs that improves the ability to offer extended treatment, intensive outpatient, or family support. Powered by portal and integrated mobile technology, InterAct’s Virtual Care make treatment, education, community connections and support accessible to more clients and their families as an affordable treatment option. Once an individual completes in-patient treatment, Virtual Care improves recovery by keeping them connected to treatment and support communities longer. Virtual Care removes the restriction of bed space or licensing limits to serve more clients and provides additional treatment options to increase revenue for recovery programs.
“People that stay connected to aftercare services using virtual engagement experience less relapse and improved recovery,” said Carolyn Bradfield, CEO of InterAct LifeLine. “Engagement and support beyond in-patient treatment is key, as approximately 85% of people relapse within a year after rehab treatment without a close, interactive connection.”
InterAct Virtual Care improves recovery, educates, and supports families, and helps to prevent substance misuse while allowing clients to participate from the privacy of their home. As a family support program, Virtual Care empowers families with strategies to support their loved ones in recovery while at the same time healing the family. The program comes pre-designed and automated to reduce strain on staff time or attention with options to outsource support groups or individual telehealth treatment.
InterAct offers Virtual Care at no financial risk to behavioral health and addiction recovery programs through a revenue share model that can be converted to an annual subscription as participation in the program accelerates. Custom portals are created and branded for every treatment facility and connected to the InterAct digital library for an automated stream of curated content and education. Virtual Care creates a strong online community through support groups, discussion forums, continuous outreach, and engagement. Clients can establish a daily schedule to maintain structure and accountability with personal calendars that deliver reminders ensuring they keep commitments and stay on track.
“Other companies that offer virtual solutions or apps often bypass treatment program to connect directly with the individual,” added Bradfield. “InterAct’s perspective is that the treatment program should be integrally involved in all virtual care. We partner with behavioral health and addiction recovery programs to empower their success and help them prolong relationships with clients and their families.”
