Duluth News Tribune reports…
NUWAY, an addiction treatment center with an office in Duluth, moved more than 900 clients in Minnesota from in-person to telehealth treatment in a week, the nonprofit reported in a news release.
Technical staff who are familiar with privacy safeguard are supporting the switch to remote service, according to the news release.
Hours spent with clients have increased, it said, “possibly because telehealth is easier than traveling to a treatment facility.”
NUWAY also has offices in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Rochester.
