The main reason to be searching for a halfway house is to find a home while you’re transitioning in your recovery process. For example, after an inpatient or outpatient substance abuse treatment program has been completed, a halfway home may be the next step. Indeed, the prospect of going home is alluring, but it’s not a reality for everyone. Returning to your home may not be the best course of action for various reasons. In this case, you may wish to rely on the services of a halfway house or recovery home.

Transcend underwent rigorous drug and alcohol addiction research which allowed it to eventually provide access to sober living houses and recovery homes.

What Are Halfway Houses?

A halfway house or a sober living house is a place or facility with exceptional quality care standards that foster sober living for people who are recovering from alcohol addiction, trauma or mental disorders, and alcohol abuse. Typically, most sober living homes provide a recovery-friendly environment and are licensed to operate by credentialed medical providers specializing in recovery after-care, which makes for a much smoother transition, to the routine of ordinary life.

Sober living homes aren't rendering medical advice, instead, they are supplementary in the behavioral health industry. It can also be a modest apartment required or recommended by their treatment provider where they can stay temporarily until they can go back to the real world.

As you’d expect, there are halfway house or sober living house rules much like the real world, which are specific to each location. For example, drug screening may be a requirement at some of these sober living homes as part of high-quality behavioral healthcare. A halfway home typically comes with a greater sense of freedom than one would experience in an inpatient program. However, since there is more significant recovery support than there would be at home, it makes for a better alternative.

Halfway House Services by Transcend

Transcend goes beyond the offering of a typical sober living home or sober house and offers clients sober living homes. These sober living homes are structured differently as they provide a safe space for those who are recovering from mental health issues or drug and alcohol addiction as they become acclimatized to post-addiction life, and are often supported by American addiction centers.

As is the case with a traditional sober living home confinement, a sober living home provides an up-to-date supportive environment that follows a residential rehab program or medical detox (substance abuse treatment). Many of Transcend’s clients who take advantage of a sober living environment are likely to also be active in nearby American Addiction Centers-approved outpatient program treatment facilities where representatives work solely to help them get back to their feet right away from alcohol abuse.

This premise feeds into the heightened level of support and community that is typical of Transcend’s offerings. With quicker access to its halfway house directory, it lessens adverse consequences alleged for people who don't remain sober thanks to effective treatment practices and treatment options readily available for patients.

Even in cases where recovering addicts are enrolled in such programs, they are welcome to take part in the sober living house's activities affiliated with the halfway house directory. To maintain the established standard, Transcend’s clients will undergo random drug testing once they are part of a sober living facility, and as required by their recovery residences and health care provider-enforced treatment program.

It is also advisable to stay in these residences for recovering addicts so that they are nearby staff and professionals who understand the specific needs of individuals recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction from psychoactive drugs or who might be needing assistance due to a medical emergency. Before accepting an individual to become a resident, they must provide accurate medical information to help staff members and the house manager assess their needs.

Proper early recovery involves fostering mental health, while also providing an avenue of accountability through the help of a mental health mentor.

Halfway House Services Specifically for Men and Women at Transcend

Both men and women have a unique set of needs where recovery is concerned. These requirements create a context in which gender-specific recovery living facilities and treatment centers become a necessity.

It’s not uncommon to find a halfway house solely for women. Transcend understands that women require compassion, love, thoughtfulness, balance, strength, and independence.

The environment created at female sober living homes contributes to a sense of community and sisterhood. Female program directors are at the head of each home, and never allow any woman to feel lost in the shuffle. Each female client is treated as an individual with complex thoughts, emotions, and requirements for trauma therapy. A men’s halfway house also has its own distinct needs. Traditionally, men’s halfway houses are a common theme.

The isolation that can be synonymous with the road to recovery is a mental challenge. Therefore, Transcend uses this sense of community to tackle the torment of loneliness.

Goals of a Halfway House & Sober Living Home

Those in recovery will certainly benefit from what a halfway house has to offer. These benefits directly feed into the following goals:

• Accountability – It is essential when in recovery to grasp the concept of life that demonstrates high accountability. The houses teach this lesson through established rules and client-specific boundaries that are constantly updated through time and not out of date. Residents are to follow strict guidelines if they wish to stay sober. They are also required to know their personal health information to understand their bodies better.

• Employability – The road to recovery involves making people more employable. The houses assist their residents in key employment areas, as well as attending to crucial processes like when they pay rent or their insurance coverage.

• Sobriety – Sobriety is arguably the core goal at any halfway house. Additionally, reviewers consistently monitor their sobriety through mandatory requirements by healthcare providers, such as drug testing, which helps to maintain the standard.

These are three of the main goals that halfway houses set out to achieve. All of these goals fall under the provisions of Transcend’s recovery living facilities, providing you with a greater sense of support, assistance, and community.

Benefits for Careers and Education

Halfway houses and Transcend’s recovery living facilities are dedicated to optimal and progressive reintegration into society and to ensure relapse prevention. For this to work successfully, clients must be capable of functioning at every level. As such, there must be appropriate considerations for education and employment.

There is also the matter of finding work. Even when formal treatment for drug or alcohol addiction ends, life goes on. Therefore, clients need to be able to complete job applications and work in a team-oriented setting flawlessly. A sober living home teaches clients the required skills for the professional world before landing a job. These learned habits then contribute to how the clients function once they are thrust into the world of work.

Typical Halfway House Rules

Here are some of the more common halfway house rules as you would expect when you attend school:

All residents must adhere to a set curfew

Recovery meetings are not optional; attendance is mandatory for clients

Residents must take part in household chores for the overall maintenance of the facility

There is a zero-tolerance policy regarding violence

Sobriety is a non-negotiable requirement, and random testing is required to confirm that the standard is maintained

Residents shall not destroy or cause damage to any property of other residents
