For those looking for a post-recovery home that offers residents support, a transitional home may be the ideal solution. These facilities are popular amongst people who have already received treatment in rehab for their addiction but are not yet ready to return to independent living without support.
There are many benefits that come from choosing a transitional home over a halfway house. For instance, you benefit from a step-by-step recovery program, ongoing support, and assistance when it comes to vital areas such as recovery, employment, volunteering, and education.
Addicts who are early in their recovery can experience a great deal of anxiety about getting back into their regular life. They worry about returning to the pressures of daily life, and experiencing any triggers or temptations that could result in them relapsing. Often a transitional sober living home is the best option post- recovery as it offers a supportive environment where individuals can gradually transition back into their life.
Transitional sober homes offers plenty of services, as well as, a safe and comfortable living environment. There may support for job skills training, interview coaching, and academic guidance if you should need it. Most transitional sober living homes have an in-house manager who watches over and provides guidance for all residents.
As a transitional home has many residents who share the same goal of sober living, there are often many group activities in place, both therapeutic and recreational. Transitional homes can be a great place for addicts to form a supportive network to help them deal with life post their recovery. It can be hugely beneficial to have a group of friends who have gone through a similar addiction experience, as it helps to have others to relate to and talk to as you transition back into regular life.
Another benefit of a transitional home over a halfway house is that you are not an inpatient, so you have much more freedom and independence. However, you do need to bear in mind that when you come to a transitional home there are rules in place relating to drug and alcohol use, which all residents must adhere to.
