The Addiction Treatment Continuum of Care
According to the National Library of Medicine, “Continuum of care” refers to a treatment system in which clients enter treatment at a level appropriate to their needs and then step up to more intense treatment or down to less intense treatment as needed.”
This means a person will enter a higher level of care, typically a drug or alcohol detox program or inpatient treatment, then drop down to an intensive outpatient program or more standard outpatient treatment options before discharging from treatment completely.
This model of treatment greatly increases a person’s chance of learning the necessary skills to successfully live a life of recovery. Icarus Behavioral Health offers inpatient and outpatient treatment in order to offer this continuum of care that has shown so much promise in helping people to recover.
What Types of Therapies are used in New Mexico Treatment Services?
There are many different types of therapies offered through treatment services offered in Albuquerque and Rico Rancho, and accessible throughout New Mexico. Some of these include:

All of these evidence-based therapies show significant signs of efficacy for different disorders including mental health disorders such as substance use disorders, psychotic disorders, mood disorders, and other mental illnesses.
It is important to talk to a professional when doing treatment planning, as they can guide you toward which therapies may be most effective in your case, especially if you are struggling with a dual diagnosis.
This is when calling the admissions department at Icarus Behavioral Health may be of the most help. We can help you come up with an individualized treatment plan in order to give you the absolute best opportunity for a life in recovery.
Medication Assisted Treatment in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Beyond
Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is used to help those struggling with withdrawal symptoms and substance cravings move through their recovery more smoothly. This can serve as an effective relapse prevention method, as well as a way to assist individuals during the early stages of recovery.
This service may be provided alongside more intensive treatment, such as at inpatient rehab, partial hospitalization, or intensive outpatient program, as well as a stand-alone form of treatment.
This allows the recovering individual to have a more stabilized life free of crime because they no longer have the need to chase their drug. Many times, this leads to lower levels of criminality and higher levels of employment.
Icarus Behavioral Health offers MAT treatment as well as many other modalities in order to help as many clients as possible who have a range of different medical needs.

Inpatient vs Outpatient Rehab Services: Which Fits My Needs?
The decision whether to attend inpatient or outpatient rehab service comes down to two things, whether you believe you can be successful in the less controlled outpatient environment, living in your own home, and how much your insurance has agreed to cover.
Many times, the insurance company is the one who decides which level of care is appropriate for a patient. With that being said, some fighting on behalf of the patient or their medical provider can help get them approved for more effective programs and treatment options.
If a person has failed to recover in an outpatient drug rehab setting, then it would seem that inpatient would be the next indicated step in order to give them the best chance at recovery.
If you believe that inpatient is the route that best fits your needs then let the helpful people over at Icarus Behavioral Health know and they will do their best to get you insurance to cover an inpatient stay.
Inpatient is more intensive and often has a higher success rate. We also offer our clients private rooms for more long-term treatment, as we want each person in our recovery center to have the privacy and comfort they need to maintain their well-being.
Making Recovery from Addiction Part of Daily Living
Recovering from addiction is a constant struggle that requires daily maintenance. Making recovery from addiction part of daily living is the only way a person will be successful in their recovery.
No matter which treatment modality is used to get a person sober, many can agree that it takes daily work to remain sober. Learning this new way to live is one of the most important parts of going to treatment. Whether this treatment is for mental health or substance abuse alone, it takes daily work in order to avoid relapse.

Long Term Treatment and Aftercare Planning for Long Term Sobriety
Long-term sobriety requires aftercare planning and oftentimes may require long-term treatment. A paper published on the National Library of Medicine website states exactly what recovered persons did to stay sober.
It begins,” This paper reports on a study of individuals in long-term recovery from substance abuse and examines the factors they cite as important in establishing and maintaining their recovery status. Key factors reported were social and community support, affiliation with 12-step organizations, and negative consequences of substance use.”
The study determined that it is relatively unknown whether long-term treatment is the key factor in determining whether a person will have long-term sobriety. There are so many different contributing factors and individualized motivations that the best thing people can do when planning aftercare is to make sure it is a plan designed specifically for them.
Individualized treatment planning is the best shot someone has at staying sober and living a life in recovery.
