Counseling organization adapts to social distancing requirements

Telehealth has taken off in the coronavirus era, with the diagnosis and treatment of physical, as well as mental, conditions being done in compliance with new guidelines on social distancing. Counseling Associates of Door County is adopting new Centers for Disease Control protocols surrounding mental health and substance abuse treatment. Director William Nick says telehealth isn’t his first choice, but he expects it will stick around.

 


Telehealth previously ran afoul of HIPAA privacy concerns in many cases, and Nick says once the public health emergency is over, he expects those restrictions to be put back in place.
