Transitional Living in Michigan

Transitional Living

After you finish your inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, transitional living can prove extremely beneficial as the last step in your path to full sobriety and recovery for the long term.

These days, transitional living centers are designed to encourage well-being, stability, and safety for people who are making a transition from an inpatient or outpatient rehab program but who are not yet ready to start living on their own completely.

However there are several approaches to this final phase of rehab; The goal will be to help you reintegrate into your life comfortably once you are done with treatment and detoxification.

Having said that, transitional living will give you the support you need to start fixing any broken relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It may also assist you with career training and placement and help you develop and stick to clearer, more realistic recovery plans after rehab.

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 free.

As a participant, therefore, you might also be mandated to attend regular group and individual counseling and therapy meetings. In turn, you will receive a comfortable living quarters as you continue your rehab, complete courses to help you find work, and learn essential life and coping skills.

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

Who Needs Transitional Living?

Transitional living works ideally for anyone who is early in alcohol and drug recovery or who has just checked out of a treatment facility. At this point, your life may feel very uncertain particularly because quitting substance abuse can be a significant change in your life. Because of this, you may may have anxiety about the future and fear that you might relapse.

In addition, your living atmosphere may exacerbate the issue further. For instance, you may still be unsure about where you should live after receiving rehab - particularly if your family is no longer an option. In the same way, you may find that you have no sober or reliable friends and family members you can turn to for a place to live.

When this is the case, you will find that transitional living may provide you with the perfect solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

The majority of transitional living facilities have a great deal in store for you. For example, they are geared to offer the accountability and structure that is essential in helping you maintain your abstinence and finally reintegrating back to the real world.

Some of the benefits that come with living 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
  • Assistance with finding employment
  • Support for any co-occurring issue

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

As you continue making the transition out of rehabilitation - 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 if they were the demands, pleas, and requests from family members and close loved ones.

Duration Of Transitional Living

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

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

The goal of this type of treatment is to provide you with the supportive and nurturing atmosphere where you can learn how to start living free of all drugs and alcohol, as well as any other intoxicating substance you might be tempted to start using.

How Transitional Living Works

Drug and alcohol abuse and alcoholism might severely affect your well-being, happiness, and overall health and wellness. Due to your addiction, you are highly likely to lose your home, money, job, or even alienate your close friends and members of your family.

Because of this, if you decide to adjust back to your normal life, you might come across 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 recovering from drugs and alcohol and substance abuse, therefore, it is ideal that you build and maintain a sober and very independent life. This is where transitional living comes in - to reduce the risk/opportunity for relapse and (in doing so) ensure your successful recovery for life.

Although seeking rehab for addiction is the important initial step you need to take so that you can have a life that is healthy and sober, relapse rates are very high. This means that it might not actually be enough to spend a month or two at a rehabilitation facility for you to finally get a grip on sobriety and stay the course. This is because inpatient rehabilitation facilities are quite difficult and different for some individuals.

Since the atmosphere is safe and structured, it is not likely that you will encounter any distractors, triggers, or temptations to begin abusing drugs. In addition, everyone in the program will support your recovery. Therefore, all that will be needed of you is to stay focused and continue striving to get healthy.

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

Hence, after you leave the rehabilitation and treatment facility, you may find it helpful to see about living at a transitional living home. In doing so, you will continue receiving rehab informally and working towards conquering your substance abuse problem.

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