Transitional Living

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 for substance abuse. 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.

Why Transitional Living?

  • A sober-living environment that is supportive of recovery.
  • A transitional step to help individuals continue 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.
  • A managed facility with a live-in supervisor.
  • A program that is designed with different learning topics each week to support recovery.

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 transitional living. Level 1 is the most restrictive/accountable and level 4 is the least. As a person moves through the levels they will learn basic life skills such as writing their resume, managing a household budget, maintaining wellness, how to find a job, etc.

"I’d had several in-patient treatment center experiences, but it was at Harbor Hall where I began the life as I know it now."
