How Long Should Transitional Living Be?

When you hear the phrase "transitional living," you think of something that's going to be short-term. But how short is too short in an SLP?  

Statistics help us understand.  Most transitional housing programs recommend a minimum of 90 days. That's because it takes that long just for the brain to start stabilizing itself from the many years of using / drinking.

However, for many, this is not enough.  A person who stays 6 months typically has a lower chance of relapsing than the person who stays just 90 days...and the person who stays a year usually has even better results.

Transitional living doesn't necessarily mean the transition should be a short one. The old recovery maxim, "Don't quit before the miracle" applies here.
