With the client’s safety and privacy in the forefront, the final decision is made for the program after a thorough assessment is completed by the clinical counselor to ensure that services can safely be provided virtually.

The providers are highly trained professionals that will set boundaries for the safety of their clients to include the following:

  • Implement and create a contingency plan in case of technical difficulties.
  • Implement and review an emergency management plan.
