Step by Step
Programming within our transitional living home consists of two phases. Typically, Phase I is for 3 months and then residents transition into Phase II for 3 more months. Residents are generally placed in the home for 6 months total.
The first phase provides the necessary structure to get residents focused on recovery. Residents are held
accountable for their time and must attend all therapeutic and group meetings as required. Residents come through various agencies so their treatment plans vary. Residents must be in compliance with house rules and all programs to be eligible for phase II.
Our homes offer a safe and structured environment so that each individual may meet their personal goals. We celebrate each resident as they achieve personal goals and work on future endeavors. Phase II is for clients that have met the standard and excel towards personal recovery. The next phase focuses on family relationships and stability in the community. Residents in Phase II are allowed overnight passes and increased pass hours.
Our homes strongly promote individual choice in an effort to promote dignity. We welcome residents to choose programs/meetings that reflect their beliefs and have a common interest. Programs in the home include a weekly fellowship that focuses on spiritual growth. Giving back to the community is also a part of the development at our homes. Residents donate community service hours as required and directed. The following are requirements of the homes and must be achieved to move forward into Phase II.
