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 at a higher level of care, typically inpatient treatment, then drop down to outpatient treatment before discharging from treatment completely.
This model of treatment greatly increases a person’s chance at successfully living 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.

Medication Assisted Treatment in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Beyond
Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is used specifically for persons who have opioid dependence. The idea is to take the shorter acting, more dangerous opioids such as heroin or fentanyl, and replace it with a more controlled, longer acting opioid such as methadone or buprenorphine.
This allows the patient 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 you 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, and it takes some fighting on the behalf of the patient in order to change their minds.
If a person has failed to recover in an outpatient 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, don’t give up the fight and do whatever it takes to maintain a life of recovery. Fight like your life depends on it, because it does.
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, they can all agree that it takes daily work to remain sober.

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.
