A transitional living program is exactly what it sounds like it should be. It’s a living arrangement that fills the void between treatment and independent living. For most clients, transitional living arrangements fill an important need. They provide that extra cushion of support that’s needed to prevent relapse. If you’re interested in luxury treatment programs for drug or alcohol addiction, ask about the transitional living program at United Recovery California.
A transitional living arrangement, or a sober living house, provides non-permanent housing. Clients live here temporarily after they’ve concluded their terms of treatment. A sober living house usually provides housing for several clients at one time. Each may have its own bedroom but share common living areas such as the kitchen, living room, and bath. Basically, it’s a roommate situation, except all the roomies are in recovery from addiction.
What this means for you is that you have a safe place to land after recovery. You’ll have the support of peers and the house manager who helps delegate chores and responsibilities. As a member of transitional living space, you will find employment, figure out transportation to and from work, and contribute to the house expenses. In return, you receive room and board. Once you’ve acclimated to life on your own, you’ll move out of the transitional arrangement to your own home or apartment. This leaves room for someone else in need to fill your spot.
While transitional living isn’t a requirement for recovery, it’s very helpful to clients with limited resources. If you entered recovery with little-to-no support from friends and family, or if you’re homeless when you arrive, then a transitional living arrangement after treatment can be a life-saver. While you remain in transitional housing, you must keep psychotherapy appointments and attend support group meetings outside the home. This helps you develop daily routines that are helpful once you’re on your own again.
Many drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers offer transitional living as part of their aftercare program. In this situation, you would move from the treatment center into the sober living home upon the conclusion of treatment. However, if you’re receiving treatment at a facility that does not offer transitional living, you can still benefit from this program. You’ll have to find a sober living home that’s nearby and apply for the program. If you’re a good fit, which usually means you’re compliant with your treatment program, you may enter the program. You’ll have to follow the house rules of whatever facility you choose, so be sure to research them well before committing.
