Transitional Living in Nebraska

Transitional Living

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

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

Although there are many approaches to this form of rehabilitation; 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 require to start fixing any broken relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It may also help you with job training and placement and ensure that you develop and stick to clearer, more realistic recovery plans after rehabilitation.

Understanding Transitional Living

Transitional living homes or facilities operate in the form of group-oriented housing where you need to adhere to curfews and policies that are strictly alcohol and 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 nice place to live as you continue your rehab, complete courses to help you find employment, and learn vital life and coping skills.

This form of rehab is also focused on preventing relapse but it might offer a whole slew of other services, including but not limited to GED assistance, life skills courses, and career 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 and alcohol recovery or who has just completed a rehab facility. At this point, your life may feel extremely uncertain particularly because abstinence can be a major change in your life. Because of this, you might feel anxious about the future and feel that you might relapse.

In addition, your living atmosphere may exacerbate the matter more. For instance, you might still be unsure about where you should live after receiving treatment - 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 turn to for a place to live.

In these situations, you will find that transitional living might offer the most ideal solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

Most transitional living facilities have a great deal in store for you. For instance, they are geared to offer the accountability and structure that is essential in helping you maintain your abstinence and finally making the change back into society.

Some of the positive aspects 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
  • Help in finding a new job
  • 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 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

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

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

The goal of this type of treatment is to offer the supportive and nurturing atmosphere 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 may seriously affect your well-being, happiness, and overall health and wellness. Because of your addiction, you are highly likely to lose your home, money, career, or even alienate your close friends and members of your family.

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

While recovering from drugs and substance abuse, therefore, it is essential that you build and maintain an abstinent and very independent life. This is where 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 rehab for substance abuse is the important first step you need to take towards 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 rehab program for you to finally get a grip on abstinence and stay the course. This is because inpatient rehab centers are quite difficult and different for some people.

Since the environment is safe and structured, you are highly unlikely to encounter any distractors, triggers, or temptations to begin abusing drugs and alcohol. In addition, everyone in the facility will support your sobriety. Therefore, all that will be required of you is to remain focused and keep striving to get clean.

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

Therefore, after you complete the rehabilitation and rehab center, you may find it useful to see about living at a transitional living facility. In doing so, you will continue receiving treatment informally and working towards overcoming your addiction.

Finally, transitional living is a smart approach to drug and alcohol addiction recovery. It focuses on achievement, opportunity, and hope. If you - or a loved one - have been considering this type of care, you should definitely take the time to find the most ideal one - ideally one that will meet and exceed your expectations and help you complete your drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation. By so doing, you should ultimately be able to adjust to a life free of drugs.
