August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #197: Transitional Living

Tip of the Week

Transitional living arrangements are group homes of recovering addicts who live communally as they negotiate new lives without addictive substances. Many such homes are run by charitable groups or as adjuncts to inpatient programs.

In a transitional living environment, residents commit to a contract requiring them to abstain from drug use, violence, and other forms of disruptive behavior. In exchange for this commitment, they get a safe, affordable place to live while they return to work and establish drug-free lives.

Many transitional living homes also include resident 12-step meetings to formalize the process of supporting and learning from fellow residents.
