With Addiction Campuses’ transitional living programs, clients now are required to “live what they’ve learned,” from addiction treatment. The goal of transitional living is to add freedom and responsibility along with counseling and guidance for times of stress, frustration, sadness and even boredom wherein the client practices his new life management skills that he’s learned in treatment.
At ACTN's Hope House transitional living facility, as a client moves through the program, he is granted weekend passes to visit family and friends and is drug tested upon his return. A client who holds a good job, can manage car notes, rent and other bills, visits his family and returns drug-free will be granted additional weekend passes. These weekends away from 100% supervision allow the client to rely on himself to manage life and practice life skills in the face of uncertainty. This also allows the family of the client to begin to trust the client again.
Clients are required to participate in a class every evening which can include a group session, an instructional class, church on Wednesdays and an alumni group on Thursday. Fridays can include off campus free time with a curfew of 11:00 p.m. Again, clients are managed by the house pastor who requires sign-ins and outs and information on whereabouts.
ACTN's Hope House is considered to be one of the best transitional living facility in Tennessee. Transitional living offers accountability with freedom, teaches much needed life skills and gives each client the tools he needs to transition from addiction treatment to into a sober life worth living.
