  4. Family Education & Therapy: Drug abuse and alcohol addiction affect the family on many levels. Addictive behaviors can run through generations and, left untreated, leave family members at risk for years. Family can also bring about environmental factors in the development of these behavioral health conditions, without even knowing. Unhealthy communication and coping mechanisms can be one of the reasons why addiction starts, remains and decays the family dynamic. At Continuum Recovery, we focus on bridging the gap, opening communication levels and fixing family strain which are the main components of family therapy.
  5. Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT Services): Medication-assisted treatment is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid and alcohol use disorders and can help some people to sustain recovery. Here at Continuum, we provide MAT services through Nurse Practitioners who are onsite weekly.
  6. Individual Therapy: Individual counseling is offered on an as needed basis and involves a number of modalities based on the clinician involved. Some of these modalities would include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt, Reality, and EMDR.

What is EMDR therapy?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR therapy is a phased, focused approach to treating trauma and other symptoms by reconnecting the traumatized person in a safe and measured way to the images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma, and allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward adaptive resolution. Through EMDR, individuals safely reprocess traumatic information until it is no longer psychologically disruptive to their lives. Over time, exposure to traumatic memories will no longer induce negative feelings and distressing symptoms.
