Providing a Continuum of Care: Improving Collaboration Among Services
Recovery-oriented systems of care provide a continuum of care for individuals in recovery. Treatment services, including screening and brief interventions, inpatient and outpatient programs, and aftercare and recovery support, are available at every stage of a person's recovery from addiction. However, there are opportunities to enhance such services by facilitating collaboration and synergy throughout the full spectrum of supportive services by establishing a continuum of care that increases the probability of addiction treatment success and helps to reduce the incidence of relapse. This program will look at examples of how services have successfully partnered and will address the gaps in service coordination that still need to be addressed to improve collaboration throughout all systems so that individuals in recovery receive comprehensive care.
