Transitional Housing

A well-structured treatment program including transitional housing is necessary to create circumstances for sustained recovery. Nonetheless, completing a course of treatment does not mean that the road ends there. People in recovery still have challenges in life to overcome, in which support is essential.

Having a stable place of residence through a transitional housing program is an important part of the equation. At times, people are not ready to return to their homes and require an environment that is more conducive to their rehabilitative needs. This situation creates a demand for transitional living services and Transcend Recovery Community can assist men, women, and families through the process.

What is Transitional Housing?

Transitional living involves bridging the gap between a recovery program and an independent life. Transcend understands that while some people are capable of living independently, others may need the structure of a treatment facility. Additionally, there are those who fall in the middle of these two scenarios; a transitional housing program is appropriate for people in this category. Transitional housing creates a setting that fosters the element of recovery preceding independent living. As to be expected, there are rules in place that residents must adhere to; however, transitional housing provides residents with a sense of autonomy as well.

There is no definite timeline that applies to a transitional housing program. Every case is unique, and meaning some people’s stay may be longer than others. Whatever that timeline looks like, the required level of support must continue to its end.

Does Transcend Provide Transitional Housing?

Transcend believes in providing holistic support to those reintegrating into society while recovering. Often, this requires supplying residents with a consistent and supportive living space while they acclimate to a new lifestyle.

The goal of transitional housing is to ensure that clients are equipped to handle life in society by the time the stay comes to an end. Our sober living arrangement works similarly to that of transitional housing, and we ascertain to create a comfortable environment that is most conducive to long-term recovery. 

Transcend, along with the Heights Treatment, offers clients access to intensive outpatient treatment while they are residents. We attend to the need for support and assistance, while simultaneously providing suitable accommodation.

24-hour staff, in addition to other residents, provide clients with a sense of community while in transitional housing. There is also weekly communication with each client’s treatment team member, as this person effectively communicates with doctors, the intensive outpatient treatment team, and parents. 

How Does Someone Start Transitional Housing?

Beginning transitional living is a process that differs from person to person. Individualization of programs for each client is important, as recovery looks different for everyone. The Transcend team is acutely aware of varying circumstances among clients, and gaining a thorough insight of the client prior to their stay in transitional housing is essential.

This effort comes in the form of an evaluation process. The evaluation is conducted in order to address the client’s needs and to understand where they are at in their recovery. Client needs can range from simple adjustments to make the accommodation more comfortable, to understanding possible triggers within the environment.

Are There Transitional Living Programs Specifically for Men and Women?

While we do not currently offer transitional housing for families, we certainly have sober housing dedicated to both men and women. We often find that men and women are more able to prioritize their recovery in a safe and focused environment.

As far as transitional housing for men is concerned, one of the main aims is to meet the need for fellowship. A frequent challenge for men is understanding that asking for help and finding solidarity among their peers are essential steps to take. One of the best things for men is to secure support from their fellows that are going through a similar experience.

Transitional housing for women achieves a similar objective with a different method. Each of these facilities is led by a female program director who concerns herself with consistent growth and development for residents. The women gain an understanding they are worthy of compassion, love, and respect, and that their past makes them no less than human.
