The Transitional Living Facility is designed with the simple understanding that not all people are ready to jump out into independent living after completing treatment. Some clients develop the awareness that going back to their communities can be risky to early recovery and can lead to a relapse. Harbor Hall has sought to alleviate some of these transitional problems by providing a low-cost, supportive living environment.
Transitional Living is:
- A low-cost supportive living environment.
- A transitional living environment to help individuals continue on the path to ongoing recovery. It is not meant to be a long-term living arrangement.
- A place to continue applying the recovery tools learned during treatment; i.e. Responsibility, managing money, attending support groups, working together to keep the environment and stay clean and sober.
- Facility that is monitored with a live in supervisor.
- The 26 week program is designed with different learning topics each week.
- The Transitional Living Case Management Team screens all potential residents and monitors compliance with program expectations. These expectations include:
- Regular 12 Step meeting attendance.
- Obtaining a 12-Step sponsor.
- Attending weekly group therapy.
- Attending weekly Continuing Care meeting.
- There are 4 basic levels of transition. Level 1 is the most restrictive/accountable and level 4 is the least. As a person moves through the levels they will learn things such as resumes, budgets, wellness, how to find a job, etc.
