Transitional Living in Hawaii

Transitional Living

After you complete your inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment program, transitional living can prove extremely helpful as the final step in your path to complete sobriety and recovery for the long term.

Today, transitional living facilities are designed to promote well-being, stability, and safety of people who are making a transition from an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation facility but who are not yet ready to start living on their own entirely.

However there are several approaches to this form of treatment; The intention will be to help you reintegrate into your life successfully once you are done with treatment and detoxification.

Therefore, transitional living will give you the support you need to start repairing any broken relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It may also help you with career training and placement and help you develop and adhere to clearer, more realistic recovery decisions after treatment.

Understanding Transitional Living

Transitional living homes or centers operate in the form of group-oriented housing where you need to adhere to curfews and policies that are strictly substance free.

Participants therefore may also be mandated to attend scheduled group and individual counseling and therapy meetings. In return, you will get a comfortable living quarters as you continue your treatment, complete courses to help you find work, and develop vital life and coping skills.

This form of rehab is also essential for preventing relapse but it may also provide a variety of other services, such as GED assistance, life skills courses, and job counseling. By living in such setting, therefore, you will enjoy many benefits.

Who Needs Transitional Living?

Transitional living works well for anyone who is early in alcohol and drug recovery or who has just completed a rehabilitation center. At this stage, your life may feel extremely uncertain particularly because quitting substance abuse can be a significant change in your life. As such, you may feel anxious about the future and feel that you may relapse.

In addition, your living environment may complicate the issue further. For example, you might still be uncertain about where you should live after completing rehab - particularly if your family is no longer an option. Similarly, you might find that you have no clean or reliable friends and family members you can turn to for a place to live.

In these situations, you will find that transitional living might provide you with the perfect solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

Most transitional living arrangements have a great deal in store for you. For instance, they are geared to offer the accountability and structure that could prove critical in helping you maintain your abstinence and finally making the change back to the real world.

Some of the positive aspects that come with staying at such a home include:

  • Accountability
  • Help with completing a course
  • Development of crucial life skills to teach you more ideal patterns of behavior and thinking
  • Emotional support
  • Help in finding a new job
  • Support for any co-occurring issue

In fact, transitional living will often require you to complete some household chores, take part in group counseling sessions, and be a responsible and constructive member of the community.

As one makes the transition out of treatment - whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis - you might find that you respond better to the accountability that is mandated by the transitional living home, than you would to the demands, pleas, and requests from family members and close loved ones.

Duration Of Transitional Living

The duration of stay at most transitional living homes can vary from 6 to 18 months, or even longer. The home may also range in terms of size and offerings from small facilities with 15 to 20 recovering participants to larger homes that can house up to 40 or so participants.

At the facility, you will very likely receive 2 meals every day, as well as many of the same amenities you would commonly find in your own home - such as shared recreational facilities and laundry services and/or centers.

The goal of this form of rehab is to offer the supportive and nurturing environment where you can learn how to start living free of all drugs, as well as any other intoxicating substance you might be tempted to start using.

How Transitional Living Works

Alcohol and drug abuse and alcoholism may seriously impact your well-being, happiness, and general health and wellness. Because of your addiction, it is very likely you could lose your home, money, job, or perhaps push away your close friends and members of your family.

As such, if you decide to return back to your normal life, you may encounter difficult struggles - particularly if you are without an informal or formal support group or safety net. As such, any small thing can trigger you and cause a relapse onto alcohol and drugs again.

While in recovery from drugs and substance abuse, therefore, it is essential that you build and maintain a sober and very independent life. This is where transitional living comes in - to eliminate the risk/opportunity for relapse and (in doing so) ensure your successful recovery in the long term.

Although looking for rehabilitation for substance abuse is the important initial step you need to take towards a life that is healthy and sober, relapse rates are quite high. This means that it might not necessarily be enough to stay a month or two at a treatment facility for you to successfully get a grip on sobriety and stay the course. This is because inpatient treatment facilities are quite arduous and different for some people.

Since the environment is safe and structured, you are highly unlikely to encounter any distractors, triggers, or temptations to start abusing drugs and alcohol. Additionally, everyone in the facility will support your recovery. Therefore, all that will be needed of you is to stay focused and continue striving to get clean.

Also, you might not understand that stressful factors like trying to regain your old career or find a new one, dealing with family and friends - particularly those you hurt when you were still addicted - as well as managing your depleting finances may all result in a relapse.

Therefore, after you complete the rehabilitation and treatment facility, you may find it helpful to check into a transitional living home. In doing so, you will continue receiving treatment informally and working towards conquering your addiction.

Finally, transitional living is a savvy approach to drug and alcohol addiction recovery. It focuses on achievement, opportunity, and hope. If you - or a loved one - have considered this form of care, you should definitely take the time to find the most ideal one - particularly one that will meet and exceed your expectations and help you complete your addiction treatment. If you do this, you should ultimately be able to adjust to a life free of alcohol and drugs.
