Anonymous Health, a pioneer in outpatient teletherapy services, is proud to announce its launch in Alaska. This marks a significant step in addressing the complex challenges of addiction care across the state.
“We are excited to help address long-standing capacity and access challenges of addiction care in Alaska,” said Medical Director, Dr. Palani Chidambaram. “Our evidence-based teletherapy model uniquely combines whole-person addiction care therapies and is well-suited to adding much-needed counselors and medical providers in Alaska, where 1 in 6 U.S. adults struggles to manage a substance use disorder.”(1) Dr. Chidambaram is Board certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine, and he founded and leads the addiction medicine practice at several Providence Health System hospitals in the Portland, Oregon region.
Patients at Anonymous Health receive near-immediate attention from a dedicated Concierge Care Manager. This personalized approach ensures tailored support, ranging from counseling and medical services to peer support and case management. Additionally, the company has created an innovative mobile app, which provides patients with evidence-based tools and activities to effectively manage their addiction. Interactive rewards, also known as contingency management, within the app drives engagement to encourage patients to stick with their recovery.
Understanding the diverse needs of those struggling with addiction, Anonymous Health also offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for a range of dependencies, including alcohol, opioids, painkillers, and tobacco.
With immediate capacity to welcome new patients, Anonymous Health encourages both provider referrals and self-referrals. Interested parties can contact them at (844) KICK-IT-1 or visit www.anonymoushealth.com for more information.
