Evidence-based methods and patient-centered care drive our curriculum at Continuum Outpatient. By using proven therapies, our programs give each patient the greatest chance for a positive outcome in recovery.
To achieve our goal of helping you or your loved one recover, we focus on one of the following topics each week of the program during your treatment:
At Continuum Outpatient Center, we treat addiction to alcohol, meth, prescription drugs, and opioids such as heroin.
Alcohol consumption is all too common in the United States. According to the 2019 NSDUH, more than 85% of American adults have had alcohol at least once in their lifetime. The survey also finds that 69.5% of adult Americans drink in any given year, and that more than half of men and women drink in any given month.
It is important to remember that even those that specialize in treatment of alcohol use disorder understand that alcohol in moderation probably won’t do any harm In fact, the U.S. National Library of Medicine states, ”For most adults, moderate alcohol use is probably not harmful. However, about 18 million adult Americans have an alcohol use disorder (AUD). This means that their drinking causes distress and harm. AUD can range from mild to severe, depending on the symptoms. Severe AUD is sometimes called alcoholism or alcohol dependence.” Common symptoms of AUD include cravings for alcohol, anxiety, irritability, and an inability to stop drinking.
Treating AUD is not much different from treating other forms of addiction. At Continuum, you will participate in behavioral therapy with one-on-one sessions with licensed medical professionals. You will also participate in group therapy and be part of life skills training exercises and therapies that focus on mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth.
