Meet Our Team Of Addiction Psychiatrists

Overview

Online counselling has been shown to be effective in the treatment of substance use disorders, including alcohol addiction, over those who receive no treatment. There are various benefits to opting for online therapy for alcohol addiction, which include –

Better privacy. Society still has stigma regarding alcohol addiction and seeking mental health treatment. Moreover, an online platform allows you to give limited access to who knows about your treatment, and thus can take the fear of being recognized by familiar people at the counsellor’s clinic away.
Ease of accessibility. About 10 to 12 % of people with alcohol use disorder do not get help due to physical inaccessibility to a clinic setting. Thus, online platforms take that limitation away, ensuring that anytime you have a craving, you can either book a session, work on a self-help module, or find educational material that helps you manage it.
More adherence to therapy. When a person reaches out for online therapy, it is found that they are more likely to seek out face-to-face treatment services in the future. They are also more likely to stick to face-to-face therapy mode when online therapy is supplemented with it.
