Transitions™ by Origins is an intensive treatment step-down program specifically designed to provide concentrated clinical and recovery support during the delicate months immediately following completion of Origins’ residential treatment programs. National studies show that relapse rates are highest immediately following discharge from intensive residential treatment. Individuals often lose their way as they go from the treatment environment, which offers a great deal of structure and accountability, to a sober living home or directly to their own home that affords little or no support at all. This significant change in therapeutic intensity can be an overwhelming experience that can compromise recovery and result in relapse.
Transitions™ provides recovery support services in a staff-monitored, beautiful and serene setting where residents continue their work in intensive outpatient treatment, with a 12-Step Recovery Advocate, as well as continue treatment with our team of physicians and psychiatrists. The unique blend of clinical and experiential services provides individualized support while clients continue their 12-Step immersion experience. The program has a full-time recreational therapist who facilitates programming with activities such as: ropes courses, paddle boarding, fishing excursions, service opportunities, and life skills (cooking, budgeting, resume building, and interviewing for employment). Along with five weekly recovery support groups and one individual session with a licensed therapist per week, clients are guided through the process of living a fun and productive life of sobriety. Life skills, outings and service-oriented trips to a variety of community settings compliment the supportive structure of Transitions. This engaging step-down program offers an extension of the Origins Experience in which newly sober men and women learn to be helpful to others and enjoy freedom from addiction.
Individuals who complete treatment at Origins Behavioral HealthCare are given priority enrollment for Transitions’ programming, although individuals from other facilities may admit following a clinical evaluation.
