Decades of scientific research supports the idea that addiction is a brain disease. It’s a chronic, relapsing illness that can’t be cured by willpower alone. As such, continuing care is necessary to promote lasting sobriety.
Providing Ongoing Support
Recovery professionals use the term “continuum of care” to refer to a process of providing ongoing support for someone in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. Care is provided at different levels of intensity, with the goal being to gradually ease the individual back to independent living. Sometimes, this approach may be referred to as a “Recovery-Oriented System of Care” (ROSC).
Developing a Continuing Care Plan
Continuing care is personalized to fit the unique needs of each individual, considering factors such as the availability of a strong family support system, overall physical health, and the presence of a co-occurring mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression.
Some of the options that may be explored include:
- Intensive outpatient programs that offer a transitional step between residential care and independent living
- Sober living homes that provide housing with other individuals who are in recovery
- 12-Step recovery groups in your community
- Access to Wooded Glen Recovery Center alumni groups and events
