Young Adult Men’s Transitional Living

You may not feel ready to jump back into life at home, and that’s okay. If you are worried that that your living situation might interrupt the momentum you’ve found in treatment, a transitional living program will provide you with a recovery-focused environment.

Our extended residential program is available for clients who are actively engaged in PHP or IOP treatment with us.

The program offers a balance of accountability and the freedom to grow. With a carefully curated treatment that is personalized for you, you’ll get the tools to navigate life’s challenges while enjoying the support of peers who share your goals.

Choosing Sobriety and Accountability

“My life has improved in every aspect, I think because I’m not relying on something that could be so detrimental to me just to feel like myself… I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m still growing and I don’t have all the answers. And I’m okay with that.”

Taking the first step to overcoming addiction doesn’t have to be hard. Take some time to listen to Nico share his story of making the choice to pursue sobriety, along with the incredible ways his life has improved since.

If you’re considering entering a young adult drug treatment program, know that you aren’t alone and have a compassionate community cheering you on at Sandstone. Begin your journey by verifying your insurance or giving us a call.

Stable Housing & Substance-Free Living

How is Transitional Living Helpful?

If you’re a young adult (18-30) and you feel like your home-environment makes it difficult to heal from your addiction, a recovery living program can be a lifeline.

Sober living homes like transitional housing offer a substance-free environment where you can focus on the treatment services you’re receiving.

Monday through Friday, you’ll attend treatment for 5 hours a day. There, you’ll engage in therapy, support groups, and other treatment programs according to your case management. In the evenings and on weekends, you’ll get to bond with your peers during fun outings and activities.

Under the guidance and support of our expert staff, the path to lasting recovery will be much easier to find.

No, Transitional Living is not housing for homeless families or people with disabilities.

Transitional Living is short-term housing for people actively in recovery from substance abuse or mental health issues. We are not a non-profit outreach center (think Warren Village in Denver, or the Salvation Army and its ministries) — we are a private recovery center providing health care in the form of addiction and mental health treatment to teens, young adults, and adults.

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness in the Colorado Springs area, please reach out to Springs Rescue Mission.
