Crafting A Unique Approach to Recovery

Transitional Living

At The Recovery Academy, we recognize the great need for support during the transition between an inpatient treatment program and independent living. Navigating triggers that we encounter in daily life can be painful, exhausting, and isolating, which is why we offer a program that makes this transition easier.

Many of our clients have battled addiction since they were children. While some have attempted to recover before, they eventually have fallen back into the same harmful patterns of behavior.

Mental health disorders usually coexist alongside addiction, which can make the recovery process even more challenging. Unlike other recovery programs, The Recovery Academy considers each client as a unique part of our program. We understand that every individual comes from different circumstances and carries different needs and goals that require specialized support.

Much More Than A Sober Living Home for Men

At The Recovery Academy, we are experts in transitional care for men with substance use, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. We understand the unique challenges young men face and provide the support, accountability, and community they need, while ensuring the journey is both safe and successful!

This includes addressing:
Substance Use and Addiction

Many young men struggle with substance use disorders, facing societal pressures, peer influence, and underlying mental health issues.

Mental Health Concerns

Depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental health conditions can impact young men’s well-being and hinder their ability to thrive.

Identity and Purpose:

Finding one’s identity and purpose in a rapidly changing world can be daunting, leading to feelings of confusion, isolation, and lack of direction.

Social and Family Expectations

Societal and familial expectations regarding success, masculinity, and independence can create pressure and contribute to stress and self-doubt.
