The transitional living program provides an opportunity for our clients to put into practice the recovery skills previously learned while continuing to participate in a program designed to provide a safe therapeutic environment that encourages and promotes recovery.
The Transitional Living portion of Hope in the Mountains program allows you to work on identifying personal obstacles to maintaining change and sobriety, equipping clients with the knowledge and tools needed to overcome these obstacles. In addition, you will learn how to better plan and prepare for actions that fall in line with your goals and values.
As part of the Transitional Living Program you are given the opportunity to gain employment, participate in educational pursuits, or perform community service. You will continue attending individual and group therapy and will participate in peer support services to assist you in re-integrating into the community. We offer targeted case management to help you meet your individual needs and to offer you the best chance of being successful in your recovery after leaving treatment.
