Quality Improvement & Performance

Research literature shows that patients do best when levels of care and recovery support services are linked. Recent scientific advances and innovative treatment demonstrations have led to an expansion of the continuum of care. For example, screening and brief interventions in healthcare settings have become an important part of the continuum, as have various forms of continuing care following rehabilitation. In addition, new medications and behavioral therapies are increasing the capacity and impact of treatment.
