What should you look for in a transitional living program to gain the most advantages?
First, make sure the environment is comfortable for you. Some spaces are more like apartments, with a few clients sharing them. Others are more like dormitories, where you have your own private area. Second, is it gender-specific or co-ed? If you’d thrive more in a women-only environment, that’s what you should seek out.
What type of continuing treatment is available, if any? You may be able to attend counseling sessions in the transitional space, or you may have to participate in outpatient meetings at the treatment center.
