Transitioning to Outpatient
Treatment at South East Homes is individualized. There is no set or pre-determined amount of time for transitioning from residential to outpatient. Treatment for and recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is a lifelong process, one step at a time. Think of residential treatment as an opportunity to learn the basics of lifelong recovery.
Although clients occasionally leave South East Homes before transitioning to outpatient, for various reasons such as serious illness, most clients complete residential treatment and are referred to outpatient. The timing of your transition to outpatient will depend upon your reaching the treatment goals you will set, and upon your achieving and maintaining abstinence for a specified length of time.
Planning for your transition to outpatient actually begins soon after your admission. If you are to maintain your sobriety, you will need to have a plan based on your strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. Within a few days of beginning treatment, your counselor will meet with you to begin development of your Recovery Plan, which will help you to develop goals and to guide your own treatment.
