Telehealth Programming

In an effort to focus on services that provide added safety and security to our patients, Cascade Behavioral Health in Tukwila, Washington, is now offering programming via telephone and virtual communication platforms.

What Is Telehealth?

Learn about the benefits of telehealth

As the world around us constantly evolves in response to current challenges, telehealth is a service that allows us to administer and receive the same type of personalized, compassionate treatment from a virtual environment that we would typically experience in person.

Cascade Behavioral Health offers convenient, safe, and secure telehealth services to patients. By leveraging the power of virtual communication, patients only need a telephone or an internet connection to participate in our telehealth solutions and get the same exceptional level of care they would if they were at our facility in Tukwila, Washington.

Telehealth therapy, which is the primary use for these services, allows you to participate in sessions from the comfort of home. We also offer tele-assessments, which let us talk to you prior to admission to see if our facility is a good fit for your current needs.

Telehealth services provide convenience for those patients who either don’t want to or aren’t available to be present for our in-person therapeutic interventions. Our mission remains the same: to deliver first-class, evidence-based care in a personalized manner that will help you make strides toward long-term health and happiness.

Telehealth Assessments

Telehealth assessment process by phone at Cascade Behavioral Health in Tukwila, WA

One of the most important factors in deciding to receive treatment for a mental health disorder is finding a facility that’s a good fit for you. At Cascade Behavioral Health, our comprehensive assessments help us make sure that our facility is the right place to help you find the path to lasting wellness.

We have the capability of administering these assessments anytime, 24/7, from wherever you would like to make a phone call. Our team of experienced clinicians will be able to get an idea of your unique concerns and decide if our programming is the best fit for your strengths, needs, and goals — all in a matter of minutes.

The process works like this:

  • Call us whenever you’re ready to speak to a member of our admissions team.
  • One of our clinicians will administer a stress-free assessment over the phone.
  • We’ll discuss your symptoms, your mental health history, and any barriers to treatment you may have.
  • You’ll be able to ask questions about what you can expect from treatment.
  • We’ll recommend the type and level of care we feel is right for you.

There is no risk or commitment to calling us to take a tele-assessment. We’ll recommend a program we feel might be a better fit if we think that you would be better served elsewhere. Either way, you are under no obligation to enter our telehealth treatment.

Telehealth Programming

Telehealth programming works just like our in-person programming would if you were at our facility in Tukwila, Washington.

We offer telehealth therapy to patients with a primary mental health concern via two levels of outpatient care: a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). We also offer a telehealth option in the evening for patients in our substance use IOP. Each of these programs involves you working with the same compassionate, dedicated clinicians you would if you were participating in person.

Our PHP consists of programming for 5 1/2 hours per day, five days per week. This level is best suited for patients with a mental health concern who don’t need round-the-clock care but still need more support than an IOP provides.

In our mental health IOP, you’ll have three hours of programming per day (9 a.m. – 12 p.m.) for five days each week. We also offer telehealth for the evening session (6 – 9 p.m.) of our substance use IOP. IOP is ideal for patients who still require some structure during treatment while also allowing for the chance to continue engaging in day-to-day activities like work or school.

You’ll participate in a variety of therapeutic modalities during your time in telehealth therapy, with a strong focus on group sessions. By connecting virtually, you’ll be able to work with our esteemed professionals and form meaningful bonds with fellow patients who are experiencing similar struggles — all through audio services from the comfort of home.
