Research has shown that the more time a former addict devotes to the development of his or her sobriety, the more likely it is that their health will continue and their recovery be successful.
When a former victim of addiction or alcoholism begins the transition to sober living and reintegration into normal life, it is important to build strong networks of support that can ease that transition and ensure long term success. The Bridge, Northbound’s transitional program, is designed for clients who are being discharged from an inpatient program, leaving a 90-Day extended care program or who have otherwise been clinically approved to participate. The Bridge provides our clients in recovery to continue developing their sense of sobriety before reintegrating back into everyday life. This 12-Step based program focuses on treating all forms of addiction, including:
- Drug addiction
- Dual diagnosis
Backed By Research
Research has shown that the more time a former addict devotes to the development of his or her sobriety, the more likely it is that their health will continue and their recovery be successful. Northbound builds upon these findings through our multi-faceted transitional program, which challenges the client to continue his progress and provides the support he needs to do so. Our clients succeed not just because they have changed their lifestyle, but also because they have the assistance of our dedicated team of professionals. Throughout the transitional phase, Northbound’s skilled and experienced staff aids our clients in:
- Recognizing signs of relapse behaviors
- Teaching life skills
- Offering support and counseling
- Assisting clients in utilizing the local recovery community
The transitional program at Northbound focuses on providing clients with the opportunity to continue to learn and grow, and helps them make the social connections that will be the basis of their support network. In addition, clients in our transitional program will also continue their recovery work in 12-Step meetings.
Because we seek to help the client become active in the everyday world, the program encourages clients to rejoin the workforce and offers assistance in resume writing, filling out job applications and job placement. Northbound’s transitional living program provides a caring environment for our clients, from which we are able to bear witness to their success as they reintegrate into the workplace, home and more.
Through Northbound’s transitional living program, we are able to give our clients the help and support they need to begin a new, healthy and sober life. To see if transitional living is right for you, contact us to obtain more information.
