Continuum Care Center (CCC) is a grassroots culturally specific non-profit Recovery Community Organization (RCO) led by members of the recovery community. We provide resources to promote long-term recovery and improve the quality of life while building recovery capital.
At CCC, we work with other community service providers and organizations to help individuals navigate barriers to recovery. We provide culturally appropriate peer support services and resources to the most vulnerable population. These non-clinical services support those individuals in homeless shelters, camps, and treatment centers and those seeking support when dealing with substance use disorders.
Community – We believe that belonging, home, and loving ‘family’ relationships are at the heart of community.
Culture & Ethnicity – We recognize that culture and ethnicity are intrinsic parts of being human and contribute towards personal wholeness.
Compassion - We suspend judgment of others so we can appreciate their perspective, and we have genuine concern for other people’s situations.
OUR KEY PRINCIPLES OF SERVICE
Embracing the voice of people with substance use disorders
Influencing the social determinants of health (e.g. housing, justice)
Using evidence to inform our work
Being transparent and accountable
ERIC BACON, LADC
Executive Director, Founder
I’m Eric, the Executive Director and founder of Continuum Care Center. I’ve worked for over 20 years in the field of addiction and started as a Housing Manager and have performed many functions and held many positions, but none more rewarding as being advocate for those with SUD. Prior to launching CCC, I worked 14 years as an LADC at the healthcare for the homeless, a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center caring for some of the most vulnerable individuals in the community. I have a degree in addiction counseling and have a passion for working with the homeless population and it’s maybe because I’ve been homeless myself which influences my work today.
SAM WALKER, MS, NCPRSS, ADCT
I'm Sam, the Program Director of Continuum Care Center. I oversee and help throughout the organization. I have a Master's Degree in Psychology and a Post Bac in Addiction Counseling. I have been involved with mental health and addiction (co-occurring) since 2011 and have a passion for helping people achieve what is important to them. I enjoy advocating and partnering with community members, individuals, and others to create a space to heal. I believe everyone deserves recovery from anything they are going through and everyone deserves a place they can call home.
