Transitional Living in Massachusetts

Transitional Living

After you complete your inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, transitional living can prove very helpful as the final step in your journey to complete abstinence and recovery for the long term.

These days, transitional living facilities are setup to promote well-being, stability, and safety for individuals who are in transition from an inpatient or outpatient rehab program but who are not yet ready to start living on their own entirely.

Although there are many approaches to this final phase of rehab; The goal will be to help you reintegrate into your life comfortably once you are done with rehab and detox.

Having said that, transitional living will give you the support you require to start repairing any broken relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It might also assist you with job training and placement and ensure that you develop and stick to clearer, more realistic recovery decisions after rehabilitation.

Understanding Transitional Living

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

Participants therefore may also be required to attend regular group and individual counseling meetings. In return, you will receive a comfortable living quarters as you continue your rehab, complete courses to help you find work, and develop vital life skills.

This type of treatment is also focused on preventing relapse but it might also provide a whole slew of other services, such as GED assistance, life skills courses, and career counseling. In living this way, therefore, you will enjoy numerous benefits.

Who Needs Transitional Living?

Transitional living works well for anyone who is early in drug and alcohol recovery or who has just checked out of a rehabilitation facility. At this stage, your life may feel very uncertain particularly because abstinence can be a significant change in your life. As such, you may may have anxiety about the future and feel that you may relapse.

In addition, your living atmosphere may exacerbate the matter more. For example, you may still be uncertain about where you should live after completing rehabilitation - particularly if your family is no longer an option. Similarly, you may discover that you have no clean or reliable friends and family members you can look to for a place to live.

When this is the case, you will find that transitional living may offer the most ideal solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

Most transitional living arrangements have a lot to offer you. For instance, they are designed to offer the accountability and structure that is essential in helping you maintain your sobriety and finally making the change back into society.

Some of the benefits that come with living at such a home include:

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

Further, transitional living will typically require you to complete some household tasks, take part in group counseling sessions, and be a responsible and productive member of the community.

As one makes the transition out of rehab - whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis - you may discover that you respond more ideally to the accountability that is mandated by the transitional living home, than you would to the demands, pleas, and requests from members of your family or friends.

Duration Of Transitional Living

How long a stay lasts at most transitional living homes varies from 6 to 18 months, or perhaps longer. The home might also range in terms of size and offerings from small facilities with 15 to 20 recovering participants to bigger homes that can house up to 40 or so individuals.

At the home, you will most likely receive 2 meals each day, along with many of the same amenities you would typically find in your own home - such as shared recreational centers and laundry services and/or facilities.

The goal of this type of rehabilitation 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

Drug and alcohol abuse and alcoholism may severely affect your well-being, happiness, and overall health and wellness. Because of your addiction, you are highly likely to lose your home, finances, career, or even push away your close friends and members of your family.

Because of this, if you decide to return back to your normal life, you may encounter various struggles - particularly if you have no informal or formal support group or safety net. Because of this, 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 ideal that you build and maintain a sober and very independent life. This is how transitional living comes in - to reduce the risk/opportunity for relapse and (by so doing) ensure your successful recovery in the long term.

Although seeking 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 actually be enough to stay a month or two at a rehabilitation program for you to finally get a grip on abstinence and stay the course. This is because inpatient treatment centers are quite arduous and different for some people.

Since the atmosphere is safe and controlled, it is not likely that you will encounter any distracting elements, triggers, or temptations to begin abusing alcohol and drugs. Additionally, everyone in the facility will support your recovery. Therefore, all that will be needed of you is to remain focused and continue striving to get healthy.

Also, you might not understand that stressful factors like attempting to regain your old job or find a new one, dealing with family and friends - particularly those you had fallen out with when you were still using - as well as dealing with your depleting finances may all cause you to relapse.

Therefore, after you leave the rehabilitation and treatment facility, you might find it useful to check into a transitional living facility. This way, you will continue receiving rehabilitation informally and working towards conquering your substance abuse problem.

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