Continuum of Care: A Roadmap For Long-Term Recovery
Focusing on Long-Term Recovery Increases Chances of Success
What is Continuum of Care and Why is it Important for Long-Term Recovery?
All Continuum of Care means is creating a long-term health plan. When someone who is sick with cancer or heart disease sits down with a doctor, the doctor creates a long-term plan for care.
Addicts and alcoholics need the same thing. When you focus on long-term recovery, your loved one’s chances of recovery skyrockets.
Our Roadmap for Long-Term Recovery Increases Success
Our roadmap for successful long-term recovery focuses on four components. Our goal is to help your family manage the entire process of addiction treatment so you can focus on being a family.
Sometimes this map happens immediately, sometimes it takes longer, especially if the addict or alcoholic is not in a place to hear a message.
We meet with the addict’s or alcoholic’s loved ones. We interview them to determine the history of the loved one’s use. We determine what is going to be needed for an intervention, or if an intervention will be necessary. We coach the family on best practices and what to expect. The goal is to determine how to get your loved one to detox and into treatment.
Based on interviews with your family members and friends and after coaching those who will be involved in the intervention, we will schedule the intervention. Sometimes this is done quickly and in some cases it takes some planning. We take it by a case by case basis. If the intervention goes as planned, we begin to get them ready to go to treatment immediately. If the attempt is failed, we will work on a new intervention and wait for an opportune time.
- Detox Coordination and Treatment Coordination
Immediately we take your loved one to detox and then treatment. Depending on what we agreed on, your loved could be in a treatment center for up to 30 days to more than nine months. It depends on your family situation and what is best for your loved one.
- Aftercare Plan and Continuum of Care Plan
A Continuum of Care Plan means a plan for health care over a long period of time. Usually a drug treatment center will provide suggestions for a patient. Intervention work is more successful when we continue to engage with the addict or alcoholic after treatment.
We check if they are making their meetings, if they saw their counselor, if they talked to their sponsor. We bring the post continuum care plan into practical application. We help your loved one eliminate barriers. We highlight and build on accomplishments and overcome challenges.
