To ensure social distancing and keep everyone safe, Sage has moved all outpatient services to a HIPAA compliant version of ZOOM effective March 23, 2020 until further notice. We do plan to open our doors again to the public but have made this effort for our own social impact on the social distancing requirements.
Sage Recovery Villa
Our residential drug and alcohol treatment center for adults is still open for business and accepting new patients! We are considered a boutique treatment center, nestled on 24 acres on a large estate with no more than 15 clients at any given time.
In addition, we offer programs for business professionals that need to continue to work remotely. Learn more about our Business Professional Program.
Ensuring safety in response to COVID
All clients are required to go through a thorough a physical screening outside of our facility prior to being brought on the property. Our Medical Director has implemented additional screening questions and processes for new admissions, cleaning procedures for the facility, trainings for staff and we have suspended outside unnecessary on-site staff and workers to limit the potential of exposure.
Commonly Asked Questions:
What services are you currently offering online?
We are continuing to offer individual, couples and family counseling. We are continuing to offer all of our group therapy, Intensive Outpatient Programs and Partial Hospitalization Programs online as well.
What outpatient services aren’t currently available?
In-person therapy sessions, yoga and acupuncture detoxification.
What if I don’t have access to a computer or reliable internet?
You will be able to access the session with your phone! There is a 1800 dial in phone number along with a link to open it in the free Zoom App as well.
What if I’m not very good with technology?
We chose Zoom because it is incredibly easy to use by simply clicking the link that the participant(s) will be provided to join the therapy session. No technology experience required!
How do group sessions work?
The participants will all be emailed a link the day prior to the group therapy session along with the very simple instructions on how to access the meeting and the handout for the group therapy topic. Participants can mute their phones and cameras but the therapist will be sharing their screen and leading it just like a typical therapy group.
Will my insurance company cover it?
Due to the Governor’s announcement to require telehealth during this time to ensure social distancing, he has urged insurance companies to allow for all services to be covered via telehealth. Give us a call to check your insurance benefits. BCBS PPO plans and Cigna plans have announced that they approve this method of treatment.
Is it weird or less personal to talk to a therapist on a video?
Give it a try! Most people find that they actually prefer the convenience of teletherapy. During this stressful time and social distancing, having this type of support now than ever is so important.
