What Kind of Structure Does a Transitional Living Home Provide?

image of a transitional living home in floridaMore often than not, recovering addicts who complete a treatment program may feel as if the recovery process is over, but at Pathways to Peace, we know differently.  Research shows that recovering addicts who commit to an aftercare option, such as transitional living, are more likely to achieve a successful, long term recovery.  Because of this, Pathways to Peace offers a safe, supportive environment in which clients are able to transition from treatment to the freedom of independent, sober living.  Our transitional living home provides the perfect balance of structure and independence to ease the transition out of treatment as clients adjust to sobriety.


Transitional living offers structure to provide the same opportunity for each client to experience sobriety.  In order to do so, we maintain the following expectations of our residents:

  • maintain sobriety by not using drugs or consuming alcohol
  • following all Pathways to Peace house guidelines
  • attend daily Twelve Step meetings
  • regular attendance of Pathways to Peace house meetings
  • actively incorporate Twelve Steps of recovery into actions, behaviors and conversations
  • remain open to feedback and suggestions from Pathways to Peace staff and managers
  • look for a job or volunteer work
  • commit to a minimum of three to six months that must be completed consecutively


The staff members at Pathways to Peace maintain structure by providing the following services:

  • full-time availability (twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week assistance
  • regular drug and alcohol testing
  • offer the opportunity to participate in an intensive outpatient treatment program
  • provide clients with the option of receiving family, individual or legal counseling
  • access to group therapy opportunities
  • on site Bible studies
  • the option to participate in educational groups that offer further information about addiction, the recovery process and sobriety
  • interactive life skills training
  • transportation to and from certain Twelve Step meetings, other treatments, the grocery store and other necessary locations
  • transportation to and from religious services
  • community outreach events, such as outdoor cookouts, trips to local attractions and other recreational events
