Continuing Care Programs

Published on August 2nd, 2018

After receiving substance abuse treatment in Minneapolis, many individuals are unsure of the next step. Fortunately, River Ridge offers a Continuing Care program in which individuals can partake to make the transition from treatment to the real world easier.

What is Continuing Care?

Just as the name states, Continuing Care is a program after substance abuse treatment that offers support and counseling for an extended amount of time. There are different types of Continuing Care programs with different requirements. Some specialize in a particular addiction and some are simply an extension of a rehab program.


The goal of Continuing Care is to teach the individual how to become a fully functional and productive member of society. Continuing Care offers therapy while also helping individuals build self-responsibility, stabilize family relationships and work towards gaining financial stability. Establishing a job, a functional home environment and being able to save money are all goals that an individual works towards during Continuing Care.

The Importance of Continuing Care

Recovering from an addiction is a process that must be handled seriously. The risk of a relapse is highest in the first 60 days after rehab, which is why our Continuing Care program is especially helpful to those who are timid about leaving rehab. Although Continuing Care is not as intense as a rehab program, there are still individuals there that provide constant support, guidance and counseling. Continuing Care is also a great place to build a support system of individuals who have been in the same position and are serious about making a change for the better.

River Ridge specializes in substance abuse treatment in Minneapolis and offers a Continuing Care program that is available to those that were in treatment at their facility. If you think someone you know could benefit from substance abuse treatment, do not hesitate to contact us today!
