Transitional Living in Oregon

Transitional Living

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

These days, transitional living programs are designed to promote well-being, stability, and safety of people who are in transition from an inpatient or outpatient treatment facility but who are not yet ready to start living on their own completely.

Although there are several approaches to this form of rehabilitation; The intention will be to help you reintegrate into your life comfortably once you are done with rehab and detoxification.

To this end, transitional living will give you the support you need to start fixing any broken relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It might also assist you with job training and placement and help you take into consideration and adhere to clearer, more realistic recovery plans after rehabilitation.

Understanding Transitional Living

Transitional living homes or centers work in the form of group-oriented housing where one adheres to curfews and policies that are strictly drug and alcohol free.

As a participant, therefore, you might also be mandated to attend regular group and individual counseling sessions. In turn, you will receive a comfortable living quarters as you continue your rehabilitation, finish courses to help you find work, and develop essential life skills.

This form 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 many 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 treatment center. At this point, your life might feel extremely uncertain especially because abstinence can be a major change in your life. Because of this, you might may have anxiety about the future and fear that you may relapse.

In addition, your living environment might complicate the matter further. For instance, you may still be unsure about where you should live after completing treatment - especially if your family is not an option. Similarly, you may find that you have no clean or reliable friends and family members you can turn to for accommodation.

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

Benefits Of Transitional Living

Most transitional living arrangements have a great deal in store for you. For example, they are designed 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 benefits 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
  • Assistance with finding employment
  • Support for any co-occurring issue

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

As you continue making the transition out of rehabilitation - whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis - you may find 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 even longer. The home might also range in terms of size and amenities from small centers with 15 to 20 recovering participants to larger homes that can take up to 40 or so individuals.

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

The goal of this form of rehabilitation 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 may 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. Due to your addiction, you are highly likely to lose your home, finances, job, or perhaps alienate your close friends and members of your family.

As such, if you decide to adjust back to your normal life, you might encounter various struggles - particularly if you have no informal or formal support group or safety net. As such, anything can trigger you and cause a relapse onto drugs again.

While in recovery from alcohol and drugs and substance abuse, therefore, it is ideal 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 (in doing so) ensure your successful recovery for life.

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

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

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

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

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 type of care, you should ensure that you take the time to locate the most ideal one - ideally one that will meet and exceed your expectations and help you finish your addiction treatment. If you do this, you should ultimately be able to adjust to a life free of drugs and alcohol.
