Staying grounded in recovery can feel incredibly difficult when you’re facing completion of your residential inpatient treatment. Knowing that you will need to make significant lifestyle and behavioural changes, perhaps a complete renovation of your life, means extra supports are needed.
Transitional housing provides a supportive environment that offers structure, accountability and a healthy peer group in which to begin practicing your new behaviours.
Transitional housing offers an independent, sober lifestyle, away from the immediate support of treatment counsellors, but close enough to access support when you need it. You’ll integrate all you have learned in an environment designed to see you succeed.
The Benefits of Transitional Housing
Transitional housing sober living environments are proven to decrease the chance of relapse and support the building of your recovery foundation. Studies show that the environment and structure in transitional housing help further your personal growth and long-term sobriety through:
