Stepstone Connect: Intensive Outpatient Done Differently

If you're looking for a mental health treatment that can be done from the comfort of your own home, look no further than Stepstone Connect. We offer intensive outpatient services that are tailored to meet your specific needs. With Covid and lockdown restrictions over the last 2 years, telehealth has become the way to do medical and individual therapy appointments. Stepstone is a telehealth-only company that you can do from the comfort of your home. Established in 2018 our mission is to serve those that struggle with mental health and substance abuse.

How did Stepstone Connect Start?

Stepstone Connect started pre-pandemic and is considered a pioneer in the mental health telehealth field. We saw a need for services for people that couldn't leave their homes to get it. Especially those in the medical and first responder field. We started with just a few clinicians and have now expanded to include a full team of mental health professionals.

When we started Stepstone Connect, we wanted to create an IOP that would be more accessible and convenient for first responders and professionals. We offer a variety of online courses that can be taken at the participant's convenience. Our team of experts has years of experience working with first responders and professionals, so we know how to create an IOP that meets the unique needs of this population. Our program is also different in that it focuses on mental health resiliency. Rather than just treating the symptoms of mental illness, we want to help our participants build the skills they need to thrive in high-stress environments.

We offer intensive outpatient programs (IOP) that are done differently than most. We believe in providing care in the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule. We know that life gets busy and that it's not always easy to make it to appointments. That's why we offer our services online, so you can access them from anywhere.

We provide step-down care for people who have been in higher levels of care, like inpatient or hospitals. We also provide care for people who may not need as much support, but could still benefit from weekly check-ins and accountability.

Why Telethealth?

Convenience is one of the main reasons people choose to do things like banking, shopping, and even fitness training online. So why not mental health? Especially given the COVID pandemic, many people are looking for ways to get help that don’t involve in-person contact. Stepstone Connect offers intensive outpatient (IOP ) done differently, and that includes using telehealth to provide care. Here’s a look at some of the main reasons why this delivery method is so beneficial.

Mental health is often seen as a taboo topic, but it’s something that should be talked about more openly. Stepstone Connect is helping to break the stigma by offering IOP through telehealth. This means that people can get the help they need from the comfort and privacy of their own homes.

Another benefit of telehealth is that it’s more convenient than traditional in-person mental health care. With Stepstone Connect, there are no appointment times to remember or commute to a therapist’s office. You can log in to your sessions from anywhere, at a time that works for you.

Finally, telehealth is a secure way to get mental health care. Stepstone Connect uses a HIPAA-compliant platform that encrypts all data and communication between you and your therapist. This ensures that your privacy is protected and that your conversations are confidential.

If you’re looking for a mental health care option that is convenient, private, and secure, telehealth with Stepstone Connect is a great choice. To learn more about our IOP program or to schedule a free consultation, visit us online today.

Does Insurance Cover Telehealth?

The simple answer to this question is: it depends on your insurance policy. Some policies will cover mental health services conducted via telehealth, while others will not. It's important to check with your individual insurer to find out what your coverage includes.

That said, even if your insurance policy doesn't cover telehealth services, Stepstone Connect offers a sliding-scale fee structure that makes intensive outpatient care affordable for everyone.
