Structured Transitional Living in a Recovery Home

The life of an addict can be treacherous. Personal needs, health and safety get set aside in pursuit of the next “high.”

It is imperative to alter the trajectory of addictive compulsions. One way is to “live” or “behave” in a healthy rhythm to become accustomed to living sober. When living sober feels more natural, staying sober becomes attainable.

Proper accommodation and care are necessary to reset one’s internal clock. Often, the environments where someone lived during their active addiction become imprinted, along with the addiction, in the brain. Returning to one’s previous living arrangements following residential treatment is often a set-up for relapse. Merely returning to an environment associated to addictive use can activate compulsions and craving. The newly sober individual is rarely prepared for all of the associated stressors that could activate urges, cravings and behaviors that lead to relapse.

Located just minutes away from our residential facility, the Harmony Place transitional living home is comfortably nestled in a quiet neighborhood in Woodland Hills, California. This spacious, private location lends itself to idyllic sanctuary, relieving concerns for personal comfort so individuals can focus on their goals in outpatient treatment and prepare to return to their families and communities as productive, sober members.

Transitional Living

The Value of Structured Transitional Living

While residential treatment offers the beginning to your journey to wellness, and extended outpatient treatment provides the foundation for building confidence and self-esteem, transitional living is a place where clients practice the art of living with less restriction.

This is a setting in which the client can actively use the relapse prevention strategies that they have learned, discussed and adopted as their own. It is a critical precursor to long-term recovery.

Practicing relapse prevention strategies and experiencing even tiny successes lead to hope, and that hope is a strong motivator for continued compliance. Success in recovery restores the human dignity that was once lost in the throes of addiction.

Individuals who complete our 30-day residential program have the option to extend their time in treatment by staying in the same area and transitioning to outpatient care. They can live in our opulent transitional home during this time, which allows them to continue to focus on their recovery in a less clinically intensive setting.

This large residence is reserved for clients who have successfully completed a residential treatment program and exhibited motivation to change, compliance with treatment, and a genuine desire to live a sober and productive life.

Amenities and What to Expect at Our Recovery Home

Long-Term Care

Transitional Living Within the Larger Continuum of Care

At Harmony Place, we’re proud to offer the full continuum of addiction care over a 90-day treatment period. This means clients can progress through detox and residential care into outpatient treatment and, ultimately, aftercare. Studies have shown that 90 days of addiction treatment greatly reduces the rate of relapse compared to 30-day programs.

We view transitional living as more than a transition: It’s a transformation. When transitional living is combined with outpatient treatment, it provides a significant level of stability coming out of residential treatment, yet a little more autonomy and real-world exposure. Clients can even resume some of their work or school responsibilities during this time.
