What is Transitional Living?

Transitional Living Center for Young Adult Men

The transitional living program is an integration between our recovery home and PHP or IOP programming. If you are going through treatment and are in need of a more structured living environment, this program is for you.

In supportive housing, you’ll have a balance of structure and accountability, but with the freedom to learn and grow. This program integrates treatment with a safe environment that supports recovery.

Our other extended residential programs in Colorado include another transitional living home for men in Colorado Springs, and a women’s transitional living in Boulder.

Denver Transitional Living Center

When you stay at our Denver Transitional Living house, you get personalized, one-on-one support from the Housing Manager handling your case management. This support supplements the IOP and PHP services that you receive at our treatment centers.

In our comfortable Denver Transitional Living home, you’ll be able to build relationships with other people who are on their own recovery journey. They, along with our dedicated Housing Managers, will form the basis of your recovery community.

Join us at the Denver Transitional Living Center and get the support and resources you need to succeed in both recovery and independent living.

Cost depends on location. In the Denver metro area, we keep our treatment programs as affordable as possible while still maintaining the highest quality service possible. We are in-network with many insurance companies to make sure our transitional housing is also affordable housing. Call our admissions team at (888) 850-1890 or verify your insurance.

Yes. Our highly trained and caring housing managers are available any time residents are at the house to provide mentoring, life skills training, and to ensure that the home is a safe place for everyone.

Unlike other sober living homes, we do allow clients have access to their phones and computers throughout their stay.

No. We believe in starting with many privileges and only revoking access if necessary, so we do not have a blackout period when you begin our program.

The house is fully furnished and stocked. Bring clothing and essentials. The houses have TV’s and video game consoles, laundry, fully equipped kitchens and plenty of parking if you have a car.

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). Rather, we are a private recovery center providing health care in the form of addiction and mental health treatment to young adults and adults.

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness in the Denver, CO area, please reach out to Denver Rescue Mission, or visit their center on Smith Road.
