Connecting with a Provider Has Never Been Easier

Keeping you and our community healthy and safe, as well as maintaining mental well-being, have always been and remain our top priorities. As we face challenges presented by COVID-19, we also strive to provide the care and support you and your family need to stay healthy — physically, mentally and emotionally.

What is Telehealth?

Quality Care at Your Convenience

Simply put, Telehealth enables you to remotely connect with clinicians for healthcare services and information by phone, tablet or computer. Utilizing user-friendly, HIPAA-compliant video and communications technology, this service allows you to see and speak with a doctor, nurse or therapist just as you would during an in-person consultation — all in real time, respectful of social distancing practices, and from your own home, office or anywhere you may be.


Telehealth offers:

  • Fast access to a UHS-credentialed provider for assessment, advice, education, intervention and monitoring, such as:
    • Call with Doctor or Nurse
    • Video Visit with Doctor or Nurse
    • Individual Behavioral Health Video Session with Therapist
    • Group Behavioral Health Video Session

Eligibility for Telehealth will depend on your medical or behavioral health condition and geographic location and ultimately will be determined by your provider.

For more information regarding medical eligibility, insurance coverage, and any out of pocket costs, please contact your provider.

Services Available with Telehealth at Cedar Ridge Behavioral Hospital

  • Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP) – typically half-day programming 3-5 days per week. Patients have the ability to maintain responsibilities in their work or home lives while still continuing with intensive treatment. IOP provides transitional support and allows the patient to have a firm grasp on their recovery before transitioning solely back to their normal routine.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – in this short-term program, patients can work through issues in group therapy with peers who face similar challenges. In PHP, patients “attend” group 5 days a week (M-F) from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
  • LGBTQ Track for PHP & IOP – historically, the LGBTQ community is less likely to reach out for help for fear that the stigma will prevent them from being treated with compassion and without discrimination. In an effort to address this, Cedar Ridge at Bethany is now offering a specialized LGBTQ track for our Next Step outpatient programs offered via telehealth where patients can access treatment in the privacy of their own home while still getting the group therapy benefit. This LGBT track is offered in both the above formats (PHP & IOP).
