We're eager to bring the highest level of care via telehealth to communities throughout New York and New Jersey."

AspenRidge Recovery, a rehab and treatment center specializing in mental health, complex trauma, and addiction, today launched AspenRidge REACH, a 100-percent-online Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for adults in New York and New Jersey. The organization's new program safely bypasses stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines to bring recovery and treatment directly into homes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue of getting access to substance abuse treatment, and experts believe it may worsen the opioid epidemic. Each year, tens of thousands of residents of both states suffer from mental health and substance use disorders. Still, they do not seek treatment due to lack of availability, privacy concerns, anxiety, or career and family commitments. AspenRidge REACH program aims to eliminate barriers and provide access to quality mental health and recovery treatment in a safe, virtual setting.

"Addiction and recovery during a pandemic is especially challenging," said Ethan Castro, CEO of AspenRidge Recovery. "REACH makes high-quality treatment available to millions in the two hardest hit states. More than 6,500 people died in 2017 from overdose deaths in New York and New Jersey, and those suffering from substance use and mental health disorders deserve quality, effective care despite the current challenges. We're eager to bring the highest level of care via telehealth to communities throughout New York and New Jersey."

Anyone with a smartphone, tablet, or computer with internet access can use the 12-week telehealth IOP program from the safety of home through private, HIPAA-compliant video therapy. Dually trained, licensed therapists lead all group and individual sessions, and 80% of AspenRidge Alumni report they maintained sobriety one year or more after starting treatment, 65% higher than the industry average.

AspenRidge REACH is enrolling new clients with groups forming immediately. AspenRidge Recovery accepts most major insurance policies and offers affordable options for those without health insurance.
