Transitional Living in Mississippi

Transitional Living

After you complete your inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment program, transitional living can prove extremely beneficial as the last step in your journey to complete abstinence and recovery for the long term.

Today, transitional living programs are setup to encourage well-being, stability, and safety for persons who are making a transition from an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation program but who are not yet ready to start living on their own completely.

Although there are several approaches to this final phase of rehabilitation; The goal will be to help you reintegrate into your life successfully once you are done with rehabilitation and detoxification.

To this end, transitional living will give you the support you require to start fixing any damaged relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It might also help you with career training and placement and help you develop and adhere to clearer, more realistic recovery plans after treatment.

Understanding Transitional Living

Transitional living homes or facilities work in the form of group-oriented housing where you need to adhere to rules and policies that are 100% substance free.

Participants therefore might also be required to attend regular group and individual counseling meetings. In turn, you will get a nice place to live as you continue your rehabilitation, finish courses to help you find work, and develop essential life and coping skills.

This type of treatment is also focused on preventing relapse but it may also provide a whole slew of other services, including but not limited to GED assistance, life skills courses, and job counseling. By living in such setting, therefore, you will enjoy numerous benefits.

Who Needs Transitional Living?

Transitional living works ideally for anyone who is early in drug recovery or who has just checked out of a treatment center. At this point, your life may feel very uncertain especially because abstinence can be a significant change in your life. Because of this, you may feel anxious about the future and fear that you might relapse.

Additionally, your living atmosphere may exacerbate the matter more. For example, you may still be uncertain about where you should live after receiving rehabilitation - especially if your family is no longer an option. In the same way, you might 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 might provide you with the most ideal solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

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

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

  • Accountability
  • Help with completing a course
  • Developing essential life skills to teach you more ideal patterns of behavior and thinking
  • Emotional support
  • Help in finding employment
  • Support for any dual diagnosis issue

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

As one makes the transition out of rehabilitation - whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis - you may 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 members of your family or friends.

Duration Of Transitional Living

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

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

The goal of this type of treatment is to provide you with the supportive and nurturing environment where you can learn how to start living free of all alcohol and drugs, as well as any other intoxicating substance you may 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, career, or even 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 challenges - particularly if you have no informal or formal support group or safety net. As such, anything can trigger you and cause you to start abusing drugs again.

While recovering from alcohol and drugs and substance abuse, therefore, it is essential that you build and maintain a sober and highly independent life. This is how transitional living comes in - to reduce 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 first 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 stay a month or two at a rehabilitation facility for you to finally get a grip on abstinence and stay the course. This is because inpatient treatment facilities 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 drugs. In addition, everyone in the facility will support your recovery. Hence, all that will be needed of you is to remain focused and continue striving to get healthy.

Also, you may not understand that stressors like trying 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 addicted - as well as dealing with your depleting finances may all cause you to relapse.

Hence, after you leave the rehabilitation and treatment center, you might find it useful to see about living at a transitional living home. This way, you will continue receiving rehabilitation informally and working towards overcoming your addiction.

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