Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Only a small fraction of the estimated 23 million Americans struggling with alcohol and drug addiction seeks help for their dependency. Well-documented barriers to getting help include denial that a problem exists, the stigma of admitting they have a problem, lack of privacy when getting help, the high cost of treatment, and difficulty finding treatment that doesn’t disrupt their lives, whether physical access to treatment programs or enough time to dedicate to treatment.
Leading online addiction treatment program, Lionrock Recovery, designed the new Recovery Power program to break down these barriers. Recovery Power clients meet by secure video conference from the privacy of home twice a week for a combination of group and individual therapy. Conveniently scheduled in the morning or evening to accommodate work and family commitments, Lionrock’s Recovery Power program provides 14 hours of therapy each month for only $388, which is less than $28 per therapy hour.
“Many people now struggling with alcohol and drugs while juggling busy lives don’t get help at all because the available options are too costly, too time-consuming, and too public,” said Lionrock CEO Peter Loeb. “Of course, some people need a higher level of care than an outpatient program provides. But Lionrock’s Recovery Power can be a great option, delivering high-quality care from the privacy of home, at a very affordable price, with program schedules that fit busy people’s lives.”
Lionrock’s new program is a less intensive version of Lionrock’s Joint Commission-accredited Intensive Outpatient Program, which requires a monthly commitment of 36 hours. The Joint Commission (http://www.jointcommission.org), is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, which accredits over 19,000 U.S. health care providers and facilities.
Lionrock uses state-of-the-art online videoconference technology, encrypted for security and streamed in high-definition video (at 960p, comparable to the latest HDTVs at 1080p). All communications are handled by a HIPAA-compliant information system. Most potential clients already have everything they need to participate already: a cable or DSL Internet connection and a medium-age or better computer with a webcam.
