Transitional Living

Maintaining sobriety for anywhere from a month to six months is an incredible achievement – but the hard work is just getting started at this point. Transitional living arrangements after completing rehab can be a very effective way for recovering substance abusers to firmly establish the positive lifestyle changes they have made during rehab, setting themselves up for long-term success.

Structured, Supportive and Affordable

Removed from the protection of a controlled rehab facility, addiction patients can become extremely vulnerable and prone to relapse early on in recovery. That is an important reason why we offer a transitional living program for our patients following treatment at Unity Behavioral Health.

Our comprehensive year-long program entails a detox, transitioning to a community housing environment and our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Our continuum of care lays a foundation for long-term success, especially for clients who have a history of relapse.

Take the next step in recovery

The initial recovery period is a delicate and critical time for individuals who are serious about their recovery, and it can often be a time of relapse if they’re not in the most supportive environment. Located in a quiet and beautiful Palm Beach and Martin Counties, Unity’s transitional living facility offers patients the ideal setting to take the next step in recovery.

Protect Yourself from Relapse

When it comes to maintaining sobriety, the first year in recovery will present the biggest challenge. More than 50 percent of addiction recovery patients will begin using drugs and alcohol again less than a year after leaving rehab. Patients who can make it past the first year cut their chances of a relapse in half, and the chances of relapsing continue to decrease with each passing year of sobriety.

More than 50 percent of addiction recovery patients will begin using drugs and alcohol again less than a year after leaving rehab.

While some patients are able to maintain their sobriety after leaving rehab without any extra help, it often depends on the support system they have at home and the relapse prevention techniques they learned during treatment. An IOP reinforces everything that was taught during inpatient treatment and extends the initial period of sobriety for patients, making it more likely they will remain abstinent in the future.

The Tools for Long-Term Success

We strive to help our patients maintain sobriety, build healthier habits, explore work opportunities and to learn how to enjoy life without the use of drugs or alcohol.

On a daily basis, our transitional living patients are challenged with an IOP that includes:

  1. Accountability
  2. Addiction and recovery education
  3. Relapse prevention
  4. Lifestyle management training
  5. Job placement support
  6. Intervention strategies for long-term recovery
  7. Transitional living real world education
  8. Emotional healing support and therapy

Too often, recovery ends prematurely because patients weren’t prepared to reenter the real world. While successfully completing rehab is an impressive milestone, maintaining sobriety is a much more challenging mountain to climb. Our transitional living IOP gives patients a chance to slowly acclimate themselves to life outside of rehab, preparing them for long-term success. We invite you to learn more about all of our addiction recovery programs by contacting us today at 561-812-5500.
