Getting Addiction Help Should be Safe and Easy

Getting Addiction Help Should be Safe and Easy

I spend most early mornings in the winter at the gym on a treadmill watching the morning news. Over the past few weeks, the news has been flooded with reports of what is being called the next pandemic, the coronavirus, which originated in China but has quickly made its way to the US. Much like the flu, those most at risk of experiencing complications and death from the coronavirus are the very young, very old and those whose health is compromised from chronic health conditions, which can include conditions that often accompany heavy substance use. I’m unsure what has warranted such heavy news coverage and fear mongering surrounding the coronavirus when the numbers of infected people and deaths is tiny in comparison to the flu, but this new illness has added one more obstacle for those seeking help to solve an addiction.

If you’re struggling with a substance use problem, you may be concerned about going into a drug rehab, or to intensive outpatient treatment or even support group meetings as any of these settings can increase your exposure and risks of contracting the virus. You may be unaware that there are other options available to you to help you to solve your addiction that will not only reduce your risks but that will also provide you with better results.

Many people are turning to telemedicine for all kinds of medical and mental health issues. Telemedicine, or telehealth, allows people to have private consultations and even receive treatment with health professionals without actually seeing them in person using telecommunications technology. This offers many benefits over and above going to an office or health care facility to receive treatment not the least of which is reducing your exposure to sicknesses including the coronavirus. Until recently there were no telehealth options to help people solve their addictions. Sure, there are many self-help books, but nearly all of them recommend and even encourage attending support group meetings and group therapy. They do not offer a viable solution for people to implement on your own. 

 The Freedom Model for Addictions: Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap is the first addiction help book that provides a comprehensive guide on how you can stop your addiction on your own and in complete privacy. The response to The Freedom Model book has been overwhelmingly positive, and many people report life changing results after reading the book. However there are those who want additional help, and want to be able to meet with an addiction professional to work through some of the more difficult issues that can occur as you work to change your substance use habits. That is why Freedom Model developers now offer The Freedom Model Private Instruction Program. It is the first program of its kind employing telehealth technology to guide people in solving their addictions. You can work one-on-one with a Freedom Model Instructor via teleconference from the privacy of your home, office, car — wherever you are. You can stay safe from risk of infection and still get the benefits of working with an addiction professional to solve your problem. 

As is true with any viral infection, the best defense is a good offense. Eating well, getting enough sleep, getting regular exercise, staying hydrated and frequently washing your hands are the most effective ways to avoid the illness and also survive one in the event that you become sick.
