Continuum’s Crisis Recovery Services (CRS) is an inclusive and collaborative service dedicated to serving our clients through a creative, holistic and person-centered approach to recovery.
We specialize in Mental Health and Co-occurring Disorders pairing residential treatment with ongoing clinical interventions and assessment in a community setting, instead of a hospital in-patient setting.
Your Mental Health Stabilization and Recovery Path is Unique and Multi-Faceted
CRS offers an array of services to private and commercially insured individuals that specialize in truly meeting each individual at his or her unique starting point. Further, recognizing that recovery is not linear, Continuum’s CRS programs offers several “pathways” for stabilization. These pathways are as follows:
Luna’s Path (our crisis stabilization program) is covered by most commercial insurances and offers 24 hour staff support in a structured home-like environment. Length of stay can vary and range from 14 days to 45 days depending on severity and coverage. It provides:
▸ 24 hour staffed staffing in a home-like residence and individualized holistic care to adult male or females struggling with serious Mental Health and/or Co-occurring disorders.
▸ Individualized structured schedules and activities to meet the needs of the person.
▸ Other psychosocial and educational groups are offered but are not mandatory. Utilizing a Mind-Body-Spirit Approach, the team incorporates Mindfulness based interventions with other evidence based modalities such as CBT and DBT. In building an awareness to self, the program strives to help individuals build connections and attain better holistic coping skills to manage their symptoms. Some of these interventions include Yoga, Meditation, Physical Fitness, Art, Music, etc.
▸ Either short term crisis stabilization or long term supported housing and case management.
▸ A diverse staff made up of licensed social workers, alcohol and drug counselors, nurses, certified wellness support staff and recovery support staff.
▸ Individual therapy on site and medication management.
