  1. Resource Description
    In the addictions, the term "continuum of care" refers to an approach to treatment in which patients are initially placed in the type and intensity of care that is appropriate, given the current severity of their substance use disorder and co-occurring problems. As their condition subsequently improves or deteriorates, patients are then either "stepped down" or "stepped up" to lower or higher levels of care, as needed. The Center on the Continuum of Care in the Addictions was established in 2005 to further the development and evaluation of adaptive approaches to the delivery of treatment across the continuum of care. This new Center represents a collaboration between the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the Treatment Research Institute (TRI), in order to take advantage of complementary strengths in these groups.
