A transitional living facility is designed to help those who have either served their jail time or have been under a court order to enter a sober living facility. Being halfway homes, they offer the comfort and support of the “regular” life that a person would have while in jail or in rehab but offers an opportunity to return to a more normal life while still undergoing treatment. The transitional living facility is not for everyone – whether you are a sex addict, a child molester, an addict of substance abuse, a teenage bootlegger, etc. The goal is to make the transition to sobriety as comfortable and rewarding as possible. Most of the people who use the transitional homes do so because they recognize the need for them in their lives.
If you are looking to enter a transitional program, you will need to undergo evaluation and detoxification. The first step in entering any program is admitting your addiction to drugs or alcohol and being willing to make lifestyle changes. The transitional homes in Mesa Arizona realize that all addicts have needs and desires that can change based on individual circumstances. Some may find at some point that treatment is no longer a viable option for them because of past health or financial problems. This does not mean that they must give up their desire to lead a sober life and choose jail over rehab. There is always a sober living home for those who qualify.
Many programs offer both in-patient and outpatient services to provide the most comprehensive in patient care possible. The in-patient approach to treatment includes both psychotherapy and behavioral health treatment and support for loved ones and friends. The main goal of the transitional houses is to provide individuals with the tools and resources to succeed in sobriety by giving them the skills they need to lead a life without substance abuse. They will teach individuals coping skills, life skills, relapse prevention and development, all necessary for a successful recovery. This approach in no way marginalizes the support of family and friends. Programs are fully supported by professionals who understand relapse and why it happens and offer families the tools to help an addict return to sobriety without a full relapse.
