Transitional Living at Grace Recovery TX
At Grace Recovery TX, we believe in the power of transitional living as a tool for long-term recovery. According to an article from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), finding a recovery home is an important step in the early recovery process. In a transitional living setting, you can find the time and support you need from your peers as you learn how to build a life based on long-term recovery. Therefore, when you stay in a Grace House, you can find guidance and support from your fellow women on your journey.
As we know, the possibility of a relapse is a common issue with substance use disorder (SUD). However, research has found that when you engage in living situations led by peers who have been in your shoes before and with peers building similar recovery goals, the chances for long-term recovery increase. With common experiences and goals, you can find fellowship in women dedicated to guiding and supporting each other.
Our four SUD transitional living options at Grace Recovery TX are designed to treat the whole person in body, mind, and spirit. In addition, we base our recovery principles on empowerment, resilience, service, and community as you learn what it means to love and have compassion for yourself and others. On your recovery journey at a Grace house, you will work with a case manager and experiential recovery coach to develop short-term and long-term goals, and build basic life skills to better yourself in every aspect of your life. Moreover, as noted in a guide from SAMHSA, we use the eight dimensions of wellness to support you in building a balanced fulfilling life in long-term recovery.

The values, habits, and basic life skills that go along with the dimensions include:
