Transitional treatment programs provide a middle road for those who have been in residential treatment and graduate to more independent living. In order for sober living to take place, many people go through a process that needs more freedoms to apply life skills and build confidence. The new road ahead following treatment in recovery is vast and wide open. Transitional treatment helps people get focused and stay on top of their goals.
Entering Transitional Treatment
When you get through treatment, you may feel like a wet rag needing to be rung out and hung to dry. The reality is treatment is very difficult but only lasts a short time. Rising like a phoenix from the ashes of addiction, you are now faced with real life. Relapse is a reality for many entering recovery but it does not have to have the final say. Finding a moment to realize treatment is not the end all be all and finding happiness is a key first step. Transitional treatment can help guide you to a space where you are able to apply skills from treatment in real world scenarios such as finances, cooking, and managing stress at work and home.
For many people who struggle with addiction, substance abuse, or mental health issues it can feel intimidating to be out on your own. There are situations beyond your control that you are forced to deal with including the broken pieces of your life and your family’s in the wake of addiction. Men can be diagnosed with mental health issues as much as women which can make things more challenging. Genetics, imbalances in the body, and substances can impact a person’s ability to move forward. If you are ready to move into transitional treatment, you likely have the skills you need, you just need help learning to cope with reality and hone those skills.
Just because you have lots of knowledge about how to do things doesn’t mean you will apply it well. That is where transitional sober living comes in. Setting up life outside of treatment takes methodical, focused intentionality. Finding support groups, outpatient therapy, healthy hobbies and exercise regimens to say the least are just a few ways to move forward. There are many people who live with severe issues and need lots of help balancing medication, therapy, and real life stuff like work and kids. Finding activities that are sober, yet fun, can be a huge bonus for you in transitional treatment. The hard work of treatment is done, now build on that investment by creating a foundation that will work for you, rather than against you. Start by making goals with measurable expectations and find someone to hold you accountable. This will help you move forward and find happiness and joy in recovery.
