Transitional Living For The Family

If your loved one has completed drug or alcohol rehab and will be going into Transitional Living, it may take some time to get used to the change. You will have more freedoms in which you will be able to visit with him or her. You may also notice that their behavior will be different than what you are used to.

The addict is in the process of making major life changes. There are behaviors that he or she are trying to change and during the time of transition even more changes are happening. One of the best things that a loved one can do during this time is to try to be supportive of the situation.

The facility may require that the clients return back to the transitional living facility by a certain time of the evening. You can help them by encouraging that they return on time and reassure them that they will soon be home. If there are children involved they may not understand what is going on. If family therapy sessions are offered by the facility, you may wish to take part in them with the children.
