Telehealth Programming

Telehealth programming at White Deer Run of Allentown

At White Deer Run of Allentown, we take into account each person’s unique strengths when we put together an individualized treatment plan.

Our outpatient telehealth programming is available through an intensive outpatient program (IOP). This level of care is designed for individuals who need a more robust treatment experience than you would find through traditional outpatient programs but do not require partial hospitalization or inpatient care.

Our virtual IOP typically consists of three days of therapy each week for three hours per day. These therapeutic sessions are spaced out to allow for our patients to continue to work, attend classes, or fulfill other personal responsibilities as they transition bacto an independent lifestyle. For those who need assistance with medication management, we also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), specifically Vivitrol and buprenorphine maintenance.

Group therapy is the primary means of programming in our IOP, though you may also participate in individual and family therapy sessions on an as-needed basis.

Throughout your time in our telehealth IOP, you’ll receive the same exceptional level of care as you would in person at our facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania. By the time you’ve completed treatment, you will have the tools necessary to build a long-term foundation for better health.
