After completing the 90 day residential rehabilitation treatment program recovering addicts are offered a place in our transitional housing program. The transitional housing program is designed to help transition and integrate you back into the “real world” without feeling as though you are being thrown straight back into your old life.
We see a greater success rate in long term addiction recovery when patients complete the transitional housing program.
Transitional housing is a safe place to allow recovering addicts to begin the process of reintegration with society, while still providing monitoring and support. Patients completing a transitional housing program reduce the risk of relapse when compared to going straight back into society following their addiction treatment.
The aim of transitional living is to allow recovering addicts the freedom and responsibility of a normal life but with the continuous support of counselling and guidance for times of stress, frustration, sadness and even boredom as they adjust back to regular living.
The transitional program also adds the invaluable benefit of keeping members of the recovery community close in the transition process. Recovering addicts from the residential program are encouraged to give and draw from each other’s strength and these relationships prove to be even more important during the transition process.
